Upcoming CE Events
A Day on Drugs: Veterinary Anesthesia & Analgesia
The goals of this conference are to provide participants with the most up-to-date knowledge concerning useful veterinary anesthetic and analgesic options for the practitioner. Lectures will focus on the newest techniques to enhance your anesthetic and analgesic procedures. Topics include the use of non-opioid analgesic techniques, clinically-useful pain assessment tools, and current recommendations for sedation and analgesia of the uncooperative patient and special species. Recently available agents such as bupivacaine liposome solution (Nocita ®) and alfaxalone will also be discussed. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to ‘update’ their anesthetic and analgesic techniques to enhance patient care and client satisfaction.
Chronic Feline Kidney Disease
This course will provide state-of-the art recommendations for staging and managing chronic kidney disease in cats, to include updated IRIS staging that incorporates SDMA testing, logical approaches to managing proteinuria, hypertension, hyperphosphatemia and anemia, evidence-based advice on managing vomiting and decreased appetite, and guidelines for managing urinary tract infections and adjusting drug dosages in CKD.
End-of-Life Care for Pets
It’s the inevitable, the death of a beloved pet. Pet owners are asking for more in the life-care of their pet, and ultimately they are demanding more when it comes to their death care options. They are looking for resources and professionals who will be the guide for them throughout their pet’s last stage of life. The journey of this last walk begins with either a terminal diagnosis or the reality of old age. The emotions of the pending loss heighten and a new normal of assistance and resources becomes imperative. In this session, attendees will learn of the elements of care for loving pet parents to now include Bucket Lists, assistance with the anticipatory grief process, creation of a lasting and memorable ritual before, during and after death, and much more. Learn how to support these pet owners who are key clients for any recurring veterinary organization’s business.
