Cats are not small dogs

Empower yourself and gain confidence to manage complex feline cases! 

An unwell cat poses many unique challenges to the small animal practitioner and the difference between managing canine and feline patients (is both the art and the science of veterinary medicine) is well recognized. 

Completing this course will reinforce, deepen and broaden your knowledge of feline medicine in a practical, interactive and enjoyable way. In addition, it will provide you with valuable information to make your practice more ‘feline friendly’.  

  • Offer a better service to your feline patients and owners 
  • Have more confidence in your feline medicine 
  • Grow your feline practice 
  • Grow your feline case-load by having a team member specially trained in feline medicine

The testimonials

Consider this course an investment in yourself, your practice and your patients



I knew I had learnt a lot from my Feline Medicine course but I didn’t realise just how much until I had the ‘cat week from hell’. I found that I could head in the right direction with diagnostics and also explain clearly to owners how their cat’s condition came about, treatment options and prognosis

I had some doubts about whether I should embark on a course like this, but going back to study was a stimulating experience for me; this course really did get the neurons whirring again

The course structure provides a fantastic practical framework for approaching the clinical problems that we face in practice each day... the case studies, along with great feedback, are invaluable in cementing the approach and stimulating the curiosity to pick up those textbooks again!
