Help and Continuing Education

At VOC we believe that the best way to share with you our passion for veterinary medicine is to teach you in your clinic, with your own patients.

How are we different?

We are passionate about internal medicine and we are not limited to assisting you with the diagnosis; we will also assist you with patient management, therapeutic advise, and follow up.

Our challenge is to offer an excellent, cost-effective service.

Ultrasonography (US) and Echocardiography/ US-Guided Needle Aspirates and Cytology

We have experience and common sense. We do US, echocardiography, US-Guided Aspirates, and Cytologic Evaluation and Interpretation. Please Request Information regarding fees for your area.

We believe that preventive medicine is a good complement to our service; we offer preventive medicine aimed at breeds with specific disease predisposition. Rule out congenital anomalies (cardiac, portosystemic shunts), evaluate thyroid glands, laryngeal function, and upper respiratory anatomy ultrasonographically in brachiocephalic dogs and dogs with suspected tracheal collapse or laryngeal paralysis.

How Do the Help and CE Activities Work?

We believe that you only learn well when somebody teaches you with passion, and we are passionate about what we do!

We provide the interactive response devices and audiovisual media, and you propose your learning objectives.

We can use your own patients, provide audiovisual presnetations using either case discussions or literature reviews, including recent scientific publications, assisting you on maximizing the benefots of your ultrasound equipment and microscope.
