Skin and reconstructive surgery
Skin and reconstructive surgery: This course is aimed at all small animal practitioners who are developing their skills in surgery beyond the common procedures in first opinion practice, or have some experience of more advanced procedures and want to check on how they might be performed more efficiently.
The course focuses on reconstructive surgeries, but also includes the basis of open wound management and surgical oncology of the skin and subcutis.
It will also be of interest to those not planning to do these procedures but wishing to know more so they can offer their clients an insight into what is possible, and what the outcomes might be.
