Participant feedback:

The ultrasound workshop was really practical and applicable to general practice. It was great that we were able to use volunteer dogs and they were so well managed and cared for. I loved that we were able to practice each organ after we learnt the best techniques to optimise our scanning. Great workshop!

Dr Kara Frost, BVet Biol/BVSc

Dr Shayne Ault, BVet Biol/BVSc
