CPD

Wound management – new & old strategies to encourage a wound to heal

2nd January 2020

Dovecote Veterinary Hospital are hosting a free CPD lecture with Rob White BSc (Hons) BVetMed CertVA DSAS (Soft Tissue) DipIECVS FRCVS. Although the talk is vet based, everyone is welcome to attend.

Wound management

The management of skin wounds is a regular occurrence in small practice; many will heal with little attention, while others stubbornly resist healing despite our best efforts. What are the tips and tricks that can be used to turn a chronic non-healing wound into one that heals quickly without complication?

During this evening meeting both the science and art required for successful wound management will be discussed. The talk will use a number of case examples to highlight the principles and practice of successful and effective wound assessment and management.

An overview of wound care products – some old and some new – will be provided and there will also be the opportunity for delegates to discuss some of their own problem cases.

Testimonials
Clients have said
  • 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 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

  • 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.

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

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

  • The Supervets of the north!

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

  • 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!

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