Kursen är godkänd för tillgodoräknande som kurs inom specialistutbildningen i hundens och kattens sjukdomar, steg 1.
Imagine a dog with chronic diarrhea – what are your differentials, how do you approach such a patient? Or a cat with anorexia – what differentials come to mind, how to you work such a kitty up and what tests should you perform? Finally, once you have your diagnosis, how should you treat these dogs and cats in your own practice or clinic? In this two day course we will discuss common problems of the gastrointestinal tract such as vomiting, inappetence or diarrhea, with real cases and discuss relevant physiology, pathophysiology, diagnostic tests such as laboratory investigation and diagnostic imaging. We will also discuss treatment options including diet, drugs or surgical options. This course will be for all veterinarians who see cases as the ones mentioned and who want to work them up in a proper problem-oriented way.
The target group are veterinarians in small animal practice.
