About The Webinar

The ability to perform an Exploratory Laparotomy in a consistent and confident manner is one of the most important and frequently required skills required of a veterinary surgeon in practice. Whilst most of the time the procedure is completed without difficulty, we can all relate to the more challenging cases where we find ourselves out of our depth and unsure of how to progress. This so called “Peek and Shriek” occurs all too commonly and leads to sub-optimal treatment, increased morbidity for the patient and a dissatisfied surgeon. This webinar will address the main pitfalls that predispose to this scenario, present a logical and systematic method for exploring the abdomen and cover basic biopsy techniques in a practical manner. This will help develop the skills and knowledge needed to maximise the information gained and outcomes achieved when performing this important surgery.
