Improved veterinary care and dietary habits are leading to longer lives for companion animals. Because of this, pets are faced with a whole new set of age-related conditions and veterinarians are charged with figuring out how to treat them. This course will cover many of these problems. Led by Alicia Karas, DVM, MS, DACVA, topics will include anesthetic considerations, renal function and failure, treating chronic pain, and eye care. Six Hours of Continuing Veterinary Medical Education Credit will be offered.
