Feline Medicine ISFM
Want to gain the special skills required for those tricky feline patients?
An unwell cat poses many unique challenges to the small animal practitioner and the difference between managing canine and feline patients (in both the art and the science of veterinary medicine) is well recognised.
This course is designed to reinforce, deepen and broaden your knowledge of feline medicine in a practical, interactive and enjoyable way. In addition, it will provide you with valuable information to make your practice more ‘feline friendly’.
From 2018, to enable busy veterinarians to manage this course, it is now delivered over 2 years instead of one.
“I found the course very informative and practical. It enhanced my practice of feline medicine a lot in my day-to-day dealing with feline patients.”
Adri Rossouw, Norfolk UK
