Animalcare, the UK veterinary pharmaceutical company, has launched its new “lunch and Learn” CPD for vets and registered veterinary nurses (RVNs) interested in learning more about canine osteoarthritis, which affects up to 20 percent of all dogs in the UK annually.
The lunch and learn session will help veterinary staff learn more about the canine osteoarthritis, the causes and consequences of osteoarthritis pain, the main predisposing risk factors and the impact of chronic pain on central sensitisation.
This CPD session will look at what steps practices can take to mitigate animal suffering and increase long-term owner compliance and will encourage practices to look at their current osteoarthritis management strategy and encourage changes where necessary.
Kai Crawshaw, brand manager at Animalcare, said: “Canine osteoarthritis is a growing concern for UK vets – latest figures suggest that over two million dogs are suffering, based on current population figures.
“Managing these cases can be challenging, but through this lunch and learn session, we aim to support veterinary staff and help them to expand their knowledge and implement an improved approach for managing canine osteoarthritis.”
To book your canine osteoarthritis lunch and learn session, please contact your local Animalcare territory manager or email Animalcare.
Alternatively, lunch and learn sessions can be arranged here.
Animalcare is the distributor of Daxocox, the first and only weekly oral NSAID designed for consistent osteoarthritis pain and inflammation management and provides effective pain relief in all disease stages.
