Feline Medicine AAFP
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’.
This course is now delivered over 2 years instead of one in order to enable busy veterinarians to manage this course.
“I enrolled in the Feline Medicine DE course to enhance my knowledge basis for feline patients and provide them with the best possible care. The course far exceeded my expectations – the content was very thorough, the forum discussions with other participants and the tutors added value to the experience. The feedback I received from Dr Jessica Quimby on assignments was invaluable. She always gave very thoughtful comments on my case write-ups/assignments, what I learnt from her will enhance my treatment of future cases. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to broaden their feline medicine knowledge.”
