This two-day practical course will cover machine set up, which probe to use and how to optimise the image to make sure you can get the best out of your machine in practice.

Body systems covered will include the liver and gallbladder, spleen, GI tract and urogenital tract, learning how to recognise what is normal and how to classify any abnormalities noted.

Delegates will learn how to achieve standard views of the abdomen, which measurements are useful to take and what they mean when making a diagnosis.

This course will give delegates the confidence to perform diagnostic abdominal ultrasound in practice on a wide variety of cases.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The ultrasound machine – how to use the machine to its best effect
  • Familiarising yourself with the normal in order to recognise the abnormal
  • Imaging the liver, gallbladder, spleen, GI tract and urogenital tract
  • Useful measurements to take, how to take them and what they mean

As we aim to keep group numbers small and the course has a large practical element, we would ask delegates to bring along an appropriate dog to scan so that we can scan a broad range of cases and give the dogs time out as needed.

Brachycephalic breeds are now some of the most common breeds we see in general practice. This two-day, highly practical, cadaver-based course covers not only the BOAS surgical procedures but also the other challenging conditions and corrective surgeries that are commonly associated with these breeds. Starting with pre-surgical assessment and stabilisation, the day will move on to the specific surgical procedures and how to identify what is required in each case to provide clinical improvement and a better quality of life for these patients. The majority of the two days will be spent in cadaver based practical sessions allowing delegates the time to practice these surgical procedures under the expert guidance of this eminent surgical lecturer.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Pre-operative assessment and stabilisation
  • BOAS surgeries – aplasty, palatoplasty, laryngeal sacculectomy, rhinoplasty
  • Laryngeal and tracheal surgeries – including arytenoid lateralisation and tracheostomy
  • Ear Surgery – total ear canal ablation (TECA)
  • Skin fold resection surgery
  • Hiatal hernia repair
  • Emergency interventions
  • Post–operative care and the recovery period.
