Each fracture patient presents its own set of challenges. When it comes to appropriate management making the correct decisions at the outset are paramount, as we strive to obtain both satisfactory fracture healing and a functional outcome for the patient. Using a predominately case based approach Steve aims to provide a practical and systematic approach to decision making in the fracture patient (which will include some interactive sessions!) with additional focus on some of the more commonly encountered fractures seen in general practice.

  As rabbits are a highly sensitive prey species, every effort to reduce stress and pain in the waiting room, consultation and perioperative period is recommended. The most common response to pain and stress is anorexia and ileus. Supportive care during the perioperative period is essential in all surgical cases. Relevant species differences will be highlighted in the approach to the rabbit consultation, hospitalisation and perioperative care. Anaesthetic and analgesic protocols for common conditions and procedures will be discussed. This course will provide a good insight into high level care that should be provided to all rabbits though-out their visit to the vets. A practical approach and case discussion will be encouraged. This foundation level course will appeal to all veterinary surgeons from small and mixed animal practice who deals with rabbits.
