More in Small Animal Anaesthesia (A), Autumn 2024


This is an online course for veterinarians and nurses wanting more knowledge and understanding of anaesthetic considerations for specific conditions in dogs and cats. Also pre-anaesthetic assessment and pre-medication in these circumstances will be discussed.

This three day course is theoretical but interactive with simulator work and case discussions. All material, links for joining sessions, as well as recordings of the lectures will be available at the ACE learning platform. (Please understand that you do not need to attend MORE A before joining MORE B. These two programmes in Anaesthesia are on the same level. Above basic level but not advanced. Just "more" about Aneaesthesia and analgesia)
