CPD lecture – The why, what and how of caring for the chemo cancer patient

17th May 2018

Dovecote Veterinary Hospital is offering a free nurse based CPD lecture with Shirley van Lelyveld BVSc MSc (Clinical Oncology) DipECVIM-CA (oncology) MRCVS. The event is free, with buffet and refreshments included.

Tuesday 29 May 2018

Cancer is a very common diagnosis in the aging pet and owners hopes and expectations for their pets are high. Increasingly, they call upon us to offer treatment or palliative care for their furry family members. With this in mind, the veterinary team needs to know just what types of treatment can be offered and, importantly, health and safety implications of handling not only the cytotoxic drugs we use, but also the patients once they have been treated. Cancer care is not only about treating the tumour, but also the patient, taking into consideration the supportive care we can offer to improve the quality of life for pets with cancer.

Venue:

Dovecote Veterinary Hospital
5 Delven Lane

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • The Supervets of the north!
