Webinar Bundle - Fracture Repair
In this bundle we have combined 5 great webinars in order to boost your confidence in fracture repair.
We will start with the various fracture classification schemes and how the classification can influence the treatment course for the patient, before moving on to the avoidance of the most common types of fracture complications.
The third webinar will cover simple techniques designed for the general practitioner to repair the most common fractures seen in dogs and cats, followed on by advice on how to deal with soft tissue, implant related, and bone healing complications.
The bundle will be topped off by a lecture on typical joint luxations and fractures of our feline patients, where you’ll get an idea on how to treat common joint injuries in cats and what the prognosis is likely to be.
