Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) - medical and surgical management - Nurse



We invite vets and vet nurses to attend this cutting-edge, highly interactive, two-day course covering the medical and surgical aspects and prophylactic and therapeutic options for feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD).

We are offering a special ‘team’ rate for a vet and vet nurse attending from the same practice, or vets and nurses can choose to book independently.
