Neurology Seminar 26th January 2014 in Association with Fitzpatrick Referrals

Fitzpatrick Referrals, Halfway Lane, Eashing, Godalming, Surrey GU7 2QQ

About the Seminar:

Fitzpatrick Referrals was founded in 1997 by Noel Fitzpatrick whose vision was to create an environment where it would be truly possible to marry compassionate care with excellence in veterinary medicine. This seminar presents a unique opportunity to hear veterinary experts talking about canine neurology in the world class setting of Fitzpatrick Referrals. Speakers will include Dr. Clare Rusbridge (Chief of Neurology at Fitzpatrick) and Dr. Rowena Packer (Royal Veterinary College). The topics will particularly focus on Dachshunds, but will be of wider interest to owners of other breeds. Owners of Mini Wire Dachshunds can also book a session to participate in the Lafora Screening programme.
