London Vet Specialists announces free new CPD programme for vets and nurses

London Vet Specialists (LVS) has launched a comprehensive CPD support programme for the capital’s first-opinion clinics. The series of free talks and webinars commences on Thursday 25th February 2016 with an evening seminar on ‘Advances in Emergency and Surgical Treatment of Urinary Obstruction’. The event will take place at the London Marriott Hotel Regents Park, NW3 and is open to all veterinary professionals.

The seminar will consist of two parts: Emergency and Critical Care specialist, Dr Adam Mugford, will discuss current approaches to the assessment, triage and stabilisation of the obstructed cat or dog. London Vet Specialists’ Head Surgeon, Dr Janet Kovak McClaran, will then outline the very latest techniques in the surgical management of obstruction, including minimally-invasive techniques to urolith removal.

Obstruction by uroliths is a common presentation within first-opinion practice, but challenging none-the-less. The veterinarian faces the difficult task of keeping an often critically-ill patient alive, whilst at the same time stabilising it for urgent surgical intervention. The surgery itself can be a challenge in ensuring that all stones or niduses have been successfully removed, so that the patient doesn’t re-obstruct. Novel laparoscopic techniques are noted to have significant advantages over traditional urolith removal by cystotomy.

The CPD evening will commence at 7.30pm with supper and refreshments, followed by the seminar at 8.30pm. The evening is expected to finish by 10.30pm and CPD certificates will be available.

Further seminar evenings are planned with the next on April 26th on “Safer Brachycephalic Airway Surgery”, also at the Marriott Hotel. A free webinar series is also planned, to enable vets and nurses further afield to benefit from the London Vet Specialists’ training.

Further details and registration for all LVS CPD events are available by emailing Claire Newton, London Vet Specialists Client Relations Manager on claire.newton@londonvetspecialists.vet or by telephoning 020 7433 0155.
