This 3-day virtual course will focus on advances in companion animal nephrology and urology. Topics covered will include an introduction to diagnostic and therapeutic interventional endourology; management of upper urinary tract infections including patients with complications; evidence-based approach to bacteriuria; and medical and dietary therapy for chronic kidney disease and other urinary disorders.
This virtual program will consist of traditional lectures, short presentations of cases to highlight urology and nephrology in practice, 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.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Understand the available interventional endourologic approaches to urinary tract disorders.
- Understand and apply current best practices in the management of feline upper urinary tract obstructions.
- Effectively evaluate patients with bacteriuria.
- Understand the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease and differentiate between types of glomerulonephritis.
- Add nutrition as a tool to help manage upper and lower urinary tract disorders.
All sessions, including the live Q&As and panel discussions, were captured during the live virtual course in April 2021.
