Description

Course Summary

In this 60 minute eCPD tutorial, we will discuss the three main aims of running senior canine health clinics – to prevent disease by identifying and reducing risk factors, to manage current disease and slow down further progression, and to help the animal achieve the best quality of life in its remaining years. We will also discuss age related changes in pets, the diagnostic and therapeutic protocols used to treat senior diseases and then go on to discuss different formats for establishing these clinics in practice.
