I have thoroughly enjoyed the Feline Medicine DE course. The course content, discussion forum and assignments have helped me to become a better vet. The tutors were fantastic and very encouraging. This course is not just for vets in state of the art referral centres but catered for vets working in small clinics with very little diagnostic equipment.
