presents a

Wet Lab in Veterinary Local Anaesthesia

Successful surgery begins with effective anaesthesia. Local anaesthesia is a powerful tool in the veterinarian’s kit making it an essential component of the multimodal approach to analgesia. The College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences presents a hands-on wet lab in veterinary anaesthesia, covering the theoretical and practical aspects of local anaesthesia techniques in dogs.

Dr Dunlop will walk you through all aspects of local anaesthesia techniques in the head, limbs and the epidural space, including possible risks and adverse effects. Under his expert supervision, you will have the opportunity to practise these techniques in the hands-on wet lab.
