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

Testimonial

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Feline Medicine DE course. The course content, discussion forum and assignments have helped me to become a better vet. The tutors were fantastic and very encouraging. This course is not just for vets in state of the art referral centres but catered for vets working in small clinics with very little diagnostic equipment.
