Description

Course Summary

Pet obesity is a complex disease to manage and although many strategies are common to all cases, each individual case will have a unique set of considerations. This case study will describe a real case of obesity in a dog named Poppy.

 

This is the first in a three-part series looking at the initial workup appointment. Throughout the case many important elements will be explored in detail, with hints and tips to maximise the available time during these types of consultations. Multichoice questions will guide the discussion with answers and explanations given after each.

 

Skills covered:

  • Body condition scoring
  • Information gathering
  • Food choice and quantity allocation
  • Setting of a plan to provide obesity care

The course involves an introduction tutorial, further reading articles, and a video quiz with explanations.
