Small Animal Respiratory Medicine (9 CE)
Brendan McKiernan, DVM, DACVIM
An appreciation of respiratory physiology enables the astute clinician to better interpret history and clinical signs in their patients. As with many body systems, a complete history and thorough examination form the basis of diagnostic test selection and options will be reviewed. Upper and lower airway diseases will be systematically reviewed to enable participants to hone their skills in recognizing, diagnosing, and treating these problems. Selected upper and lower airway cases will be presented and discussed, allowing the group to arrive at the best solution for the case at hand and to apply in their practice in the future
Exotics: Turtles & Pet Pigs (9 CE)
