This course is ideal for vets who want to brush up on their knowledge of analgesics and be updated on the latest techniques available for managing acute and chronic pain in small animals. It aims to develop your knowledge and clinical decision making by providing an update and review of drug efficacy and administration techniques, as well as taking an evidence based approach to the use of ‘off-label’ opioids.
Do you know what you are seeing when you are scanning? Can you follow blood vessels as a roadmap to the abdomen? Can you find the adrenal glands and pancreas? Do you have enough time to practise your scanning on normal dogs as well as clinical patients? If you are time poor but need an intensive boost to help you gain more confidence with your imaging, here’s your chance to make it happen! Let Dr Karon Hoffmann work with you in an intensive, immersive practical 4-day course on Diagnostic Ultrasound, where you will spend a dedicated amount of time learning how to perform scans from the right foundations and improve your technique under the expert guidance of these instructors. Karon is known Australia-wide as the ‘go to’ person for ultrasound as well as being a European Boarded Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. She will instruct and give you personal and immediate feedback on your scanning, and teach you tips and tricks that will make a huge difference when you get back to your practice.
Can you pick those common tumours in skin? What can you glean from a cytological smear made from a body cavity effusion? Let one of the most experienced clinical cytologists in Australia answer these questions and more whilst helping you improve your cytology skills for your vet practice. You will walk away with practical tips and an approach to diagnosing disease from fine needle cell aspirates of lumps and bumps, harvesting cells present in body fluids, as well as cells obtained from special procedures on special sites.
In this course you will review and update your knowledge of avian anatomy, physiology and husbandry; handling and examination techniques; the collection of diagnostic samples; emergency procedures and housing; interpreting avian biochemistry and making the most of other in-house pathology; special requirements of avian radiography and common problems and syndromes.

This course is designed to give you better understanding of the principles and the practicalities of doing eye surgery with the aim of expanding the range of procedures you can confidently offer your clients. The course will feature video procedures to guide your learning.
Four-Words Forwards! is a 1-day workshop promoting wellbeing and tapping into resources we may not know we have. Our speakers will provide bite-sized insights, with a focus on positive action you can take to build resilience and support colleagues.
In addition to their talks, each speaker will give FOUR WORDS of advice to help us move forwards with our lives and careers. We feel that any small, suggested change can be summarised in four words. Not all of these will be for everyone, but if each person can take away one or two pieces of four words advice that will lead to positive, tangible changes in their daily lives, then we’ve made a difference.
This is a unique initiative and we have negotiated a subsidised rate to ensure an affordable experience. This initiative has been made possible by our generous sponsors and proceeds from the Vet Cookbook, a collaboration designed to promote sharing of stories and snacks, published by the CVE in 2017.
This workshop is intended for veterinarians who wish to gain further expertise in rabbit and rodent dentistry so that they can confidently approach, diagnose and treat these cases in their own clinics. The course will consist of a series of morning lectures to review and consolidate knowledge in anatomy, radiology, anaesthesia, analgesia, instrumentation, intra/post-operative complications and peri-operative management.
The purpose of this workshop is to teach you how to diagnose the nature of traumatic or developmental limb and beak problems, determine an appropriate prognosis and finally, how to fix the wings, legs and beaks of the most diverse avian patients.
