2019 Canine Geriatric Medicine Course

September 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm


This CE event will tackle the complex issues that arise when diagnosing and treating senior and geriatric dogs. Topics covered range widely from anesthesia and sedation to nutrition and mobility. There will be an emphasis on practical advice using case based presentations. Questions that veterinarians frequently ask (such as how to approach a patient with renal and cardiac disease) are specifically addressed in short, targeted sessions.

Attendees will receive 6.5 hours towards Continuing Education Credit.
