Thoroughly enjoyed the course. I found Louise an interesting speaker who was able to hold my attention. The most useful part for me was Session 1. I felt a bit unsure regarding what was normal and what advice to give to owners. I also found the part about resuscitating puppies useful as we have been using old protocols in my practice. I am going to use what I have learnt to draw up new protocols for the practice with regards to when a whelping bitch needs seen etc
