CPD Lecture Series for Veterinary Professionals

Partners in Care

Our Partners in Care lecture series is offered to veterinary professionals to provide high quality and relevant CPD with our specialists throughout the year. Covering a range of topics, we design the lectures for vets and vet nurses based on what they want to learn.

Our lectures are held at either our Orthopaedic and Neurology hospital in Eashing, in our lecture theatre; at our Oncology and Soft Tissue hospital in Guildford; or at The Hub, Surrey Research Park, Guildford. We provide tea, coffee and either pizza or sandwiches on arrival and the rooms are airconditioned for your comfort.

Orthopaedics and Neurology

With the increased popularity of toy breed dogs, atlantoaxial instability is a clinical condition on the rise. Radiographs are often all you need to detect this anomaly which may very well save the patient’s life. We will use case examples to revise specific pitfalls of cervical neurolocalisation, interpret spinal radiographs and consider other neurological conditions seen in toy breeds. We will also give you practical information on the management of atlantoaxial instability cases to advise clients including a brief description of surgical options.

The skillset for a successful neurological examination of the cat is very different from the dog – and so are many of the diseases that cause brain, spinal cord or neuromuscular disease in this species. This lecture on feline neuromuscular diseases is the first of series on Feline Neurology at Fitzpatrick referrals. We will discuss a feline focused neurological examination and key points in history taking before moving on to cover the approach and work up when presented with a weak cat. Case-based examples will be used throughout and delegates are encouraged to bring any appropriate cases for discussion.

Rehabilitation of muscles can often be thought of as massage, stretches and electrotherapy. Physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics and approach treatments from a functional point of view. This talk will aim to discuss two major muscle groups  – triceps brachii and quadriceps femoris, their function and how we clinically apply treatments to these important muscles.

You’re dealing with a dyspnoeic dog and take thoracic x-rays. Do you want to understand what those fuzzy-looking lungs really mean?
