TestimonialsDr Aoife Keary, Derry, Northern Ireland Dr Aoife Keary:
"As a new graduate vet, confidence with scanning is not something I came into the profession with. However, after completing the course with Sotirios I have to say my confidence in my abilities has soared. The theory is very interactive, informative and very easy to put into practice at the farm. We used different scanning probes and equipment as well as the Henrietta a cow model that essentially changed the way I scan cows completely. Sotirios was very accommodating and helpful with answering any of my questions also. I really couldn't recommend this course enough, if you are unsure about your ultrasound scanning and want to put some structure to your work, new grad or not. Thanks again Sotirios, I really appreciate your guidance and help with my stubborn scanning! Thoroughly enjoyed the day and I'll be back for more some time in the future I hope!"
Tanja van Loon, South Devon Farm Veterinary Practice, Totnes Tanja van Loon:
“Found it really helpful and loved that it was such a small class. Pretty excited to use all the practical tips and do some scanning of my own! Made me feel like I actually would be able to learn this skill and practise it.”
John Kidd, Kidd Veterinary Centre, Forfar John Kidd:
“The recent cattle ultrasound course I attended was excellent. It reinforced and gave great confidence to my existing knowledge at the same time as learning new skills relevant to scanning in everyday veterinary practice.”
