iCatCare has announced the launch of a new, online feline dentistry course.

Delivered in a case-based style, the course will give students the chance to work through cases and apply practical theory before treating feline patients.

There are four modules: the consultation, further investigations, treatment, and post-operative and preventative care.

ICC says the emphasis is on providing practical skills that can be used in clinic.

On completion, students will have the confidence to identify a range of dental abnormalities, persuade cat owners to consent to further investigation and treatment, and formulate and carry out the ideal treatment plan for each cat.

Dr. Matthew Oxford BVM&S GPCert(SAS) MRCVS, who helped develop the course, said: "Dentistry is poorly represented in undergraduate veterinary courses, with feline specific dentistry perhaps only having one or two lectures, yet dentistry accounts for roughly 25% of all general surgery.

"This transformational course uses a very practical approach to case management taking vets from the initial consultation, through anaesthesia, dental radiography, surgery, and then postoperative care.

"Cases are worked through with extensive teaching material supplemented into cases to provide a pragmatic, case-based approach.”

 Pre-registration for the course is available until 1st November with an early bird price of £299 (+VAT) available using the discount code NEWCBL50 at the checkout.
