Precision & Confidence in Small Animal Abdominal Surgery
Wednesday, October 24
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Fees: $550 early / $600 late
Designed for the general practitioner who wants to enhance his or her efficiency and efficacy in performing a number of common abdominal procedures in the small animal patient. Techniques covered include:
• A truly thorough abdominal exploration
• Safe and effective opening and closing of luminal structures
• Obtaining good biopsies of abdominal organs
• Incisional gastropexy, omentalization, feeding tube placement, and trans-diaphragmatic cardiac massage.
Procedures will be performed on canine cadavers. This laboratory will be led by board certified surgeons with a passion for teaching and a desire to share the tips and tricks not taught in veterinary school. With the hands-on cadaver practice and individual feedback, participants will feel more confident in their ability to fully assess an abdomen and comfortably perform a variety of common abdominal procedures for their patients.
