Overview

Cytology is an especially valuable diagnostic aid in veterinary medicine. It has the advantage of being an inexpensive technique with a lower degree of invasiveness, and is able to provide a diagnosis with a very rapid turnaround time.

This 5-day course will give you the basics you need for in house cytology from sampling techniques, to slide examination approach, and will focus in particular on the cytological presentation of the most common canine and feline pathological conditions of skin, ears, lymph nodes and cavitary effusions. Each day will include microscopy practicals to help you gaining experience with the concepts learned throughout the course.
