COURSE OVERVIEW

 

This 2.5-day virtual course will focus on advances in companion animal endocrinology. Topics covered will include the management of dogs and cats with diabetes mellitus, including patients with diabetic ketoacidosis; monitoring methods for dogs with hyperadrenocorticism; and medical and dietary therapy for hyperlipidemia.  


This virtual program will consist of traditional lectures, short presentations covering key abstracts from recent meetings, and panel discussions. Diplomates and candidates will be provided with a unique opportunity to focus on specialist-level conditions, and learn from colleagues in both academia and private practice. New ideas and approaches can be immediately incorporated into daily activities, with enhanced patient care and improved outcomes. 


This in-depth course will be offered as a live virtual event on November 2-4, 2020. Material presented will be a combination of pre-recorded lectures with live presenter Q&As and live discussions throughout the course. Participants of the live course will receive access to the course recordings following the event.  


If you are unable to attend the live course, register now to access the same great course content on demand, at your convenience. All sessions, including the live Q&As, will be captured during the live course and provided for on demand access in early December 2020.

1. Create a logical and appropriate plan for the stable diabetic dog and cat.
