Every year, we host two complimentary continuing education seminars for veterinary professionals. The spring course focuses on updates in veterinary oncology and the fall course focuses on geriatric care. Part of FETCH a Cure’s mission is to further education and awareness in the scope of pet cancer and age-related illnesses. By providing veterinary continuing education lectures to the public, it is our hope that professionals and individual pet owners will be empowered with the knowledge and tools to offer the best care for companion animals.
Below, you can find videos from our most recent continuing education seminars. If you weren’t able to make it to these lectures, we hope you will consider coming to our next event.
