Best practices to prevent drug interactions in your patients

This talk will review what is known about common drug interactions in dogs and cats and make recommendations to avoid potential loss of efficacy or drug toxicity.

Best practices to detect drug toxicities before they cause illness

How can you monitor for and manage unexpected drug toxicities in your patients? This presentation will focus on commonly used drugs that can cause idiosyncratic liver, skin, or hematologic toxicity in dogs and cats, and how to prevent, monitor for, and manage suspected reactions.

Environmental prevention of bladder cancer and lymphoma in dogs

Bladder cancer and lymphoma have strong links to environmental chemical exposures in people, and we are finding that the same may be true for dogs. This session will present the evidence for specific chemical exposures and these cancers in dogs and provide practical recommendations to make to owners of high-risk breeds.
