“This course exceeded any expectation that I had. I imagined that the first two days we would be confined to a chair and a desk as our mentors would theoretically talk about different techniques/anaesthetics procedures used in bitch spay.

“The course was great, I learnt so much from Luis and Judy-they were excellent teachers. I have gone from worrying about spays to now being comfortable in what I am doing and can’t thank them enough.  It was a fun and enjoyable experience and I would recommend it to all.”

“Has helped me a great deal so far – has increased my confidence with other procedures as well as spays. I have already recommended it to my new graduate friends.”

Simone Cuttler (delegate)

“During the course I met lovely people and regarding to improvement and confidence it was great as now I feel confident enough to perform routine surgeries and I know what I’m doing, what I’m looking for and how I have to react and what I have to do when inconveniences happen”

Olatz Iglesias (delegate)

How do you think this course will help you in your work?    “Yes, definitely. It made me feel more confident with what I am doing and prepare me that I just need more practice.”

Maja Misewicz (delegate)

What did you learn? “I progressed from complete inexperience in surgery to being able to complete a bitch spay by myself. I also refreshed my catheter, sedation and injection skills.” How were the tutors?  “Extremely patient and helpful.”
