Dexmedetomidine? Ketamine? Acepromazine?
Analgesics and anesthetic drugs got you anxious?
Join us for a complimentary, 2-hour, RACE-approved VETgirl & Zoetis online veterinary continuing education webinar, where Dr. Garret Pachtinger, VMD, DACVECC reviews the approach to sedation and analgesia for the sick, small animal patient. After all, veterinarians are constantly faced with clinical challenges with the goal of solving diagnostic dilemmas, reducing morbidity and mortality, and ultimately restoring patient health. One of the most challenging issues we face is determining the best sedation and/or analgesic protocol for the critically ill or emergent small animal patient. Choosing the correct analgesic therapy requires an understanding of both the pharmacokinetics of a wide range of drugs as well as the levels or type of pain associated with various conditions.
In this complimentary webinar, we'll discuss:
- The pain experience
- Highlight important classes of analgesic drugs
- Discuss multimodal pain management
- Highlight important differences between our feline and canine patients
