CPD lecture – The F word: Fits, faints and falls

15th June 2018

Dovecote Veterinary Hospital is offering a free CPD lecture with Mark Lowrie MA VetMB MVM Dip ECVN MRCVS. The event is free, with buffet and refreshments included.

Wednesday 20 June 2018

Epileptic seizures are one of the most common neurological presentations in practice with no magical cure. These two features can make it frustrating to manage as on the one hand we have to manage owner expectations whilst on the other we have to battle difficult decisions and commonly end up with a less than satisfactory outcome. Video footage will be used to challenge your assumptions on seizures and alter your outlook on these trying cases. An easy-to-follow five point plan will then be presented that will allow a logical step-wise approach to seizures and seizure-like complaints with some realistic management plans that can be easily applied in practice – including some that may seem quite surprising.

Clients have said
  • The Supervets of the north!

  • Lovely, caring staff, who go the extra mile. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

  • I just wanted to say how amazing Kimberly was today with me and my dog Rolo. She could see how upset I was, made me feel at ease and reassured me that Rolo would be okay. Her level of professionalism and kind nature helped me get through a difficult day

  • Really good consultation with neurologist Sergio today with CT and MRI scan. Very well organised with helpful, professional staff.

  • I had a very positive experience at Dovecote. I met the vet that day that was going to perform my dog’s surgery and I was immediately put at ease by his professional, friendly and caring consultation. All the staff I came in contact with were lovely, from the welcoming reception staff to the nurses I kept ringing through the evening! My dog is now back to her normal naughty self, I can’t thank them enough.

  • I work as a registered vet nurse and had to come to Dovecote with my dog Alfie. I was squeezed in and was seen promptly by Sergio right after a long operation. He was so kind to Alfie and explained everything to my mom (who is not vet trained) and did Alfie’s MRI there and then even though it was going to make it a late finish. Unfortunately we had to make the call to put my lovely boy to sleep and Sergio and the nurses were really kind and helpful. I received your lovely card today and want to thank you all for your help and seeing him so quickly. I will be forever grateful.

  • Receptionists, physio, nurses and vets were all fantastic, every single member of staff is worth their weight in gold.

  • Whole team were welcoming and made myself and my cat feel very comfortable! Mark Lowrie is fantastic!! Thank you for coping with me as a worried owner!

  • Think ‘The Supervet’ and that’s the level of care and professionalism. Highly recommend

  • Everyone has always been so kind and Charlie absolutely loves his visits. The receptionists are particularly wonderful and are always on hand with a box of tissues for the numerous tears we’ve shed.
