Chirurgical management of corneal ulcers in domestic carnivores.

The next Cornée workshop will be held at the ENVT on December 7 and 9, 2023, in partnership with the ophthalmology service of Dr Jean-Yves DOUET.

You may contact Dr Guillaume Cazalot for further information.

The training addresses the place of surgery in the therapeutic management of corneal ulcer in domestic carnivores and allows participants to handle a number of biomaterials during practical work.
