All of Small Animal Oncology (squeezed into two days)

16.mars - 17.mars
01.mars 2019

Participants can expect to learn a coherent general approach to cancer in cats and dogs. There will be a specific focus on the more common cancer diagnoses including lymphoma, mast cell tumour and soft tissue sarcoma. There will be an emphasis on managing cases well in general practice, with all the limitations that this imposes. It is hoped that all participants will leave the course with much greater confidence approaching oncology cases and with some very useful tips that should improve their own, their owners’ and their patients’ experiences.
