If cats could talk, they’d be the first to tell you that they require refined, particular and focused care.
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’.
This course is now delivered over 2 years to enable busy veterinarians to manage the comprehensive content.

This course was single handedly the best decision I have made in the beginning of advancing my feline practice to the next level. As a student I will say what you put into this course is directly proportional to what you will get out of it. It is well written and thorough with an appropriate difficulty level. My tutor was always available to push me into critical thinking as well as to answer my questions. For me this was the first step in my prep work for ABVP board certification. As I complete this course I do have to admit I am a bit sad, however my confidence level in working up, diagnosing and treating a complicated feline case is leaps and bounds beyond where it was two years ago. And as the saying goes, Confidence is Competence. Thank you CVE.
