Attention members and mythbusters!
Can you believe it?! Yet another free webinar offer for you, thanks to our brilliant partner Hill’s Pet Nutrition!
How much do you really know about using food management to dissolve bladder stones? Did you for instance know it’s called ‘nutritional dissolution’? A lot of hearsay information is going around about this possible alternative to surgical removal, and as a vet, it’s essential to know what’s wrong and what’s right when it comes to what you’ve heard!
To get everything straight Dr. Jody Lulich (DVM, PhD, DACVIM) will give a true mythbusting webinar to seperate the myths from the truth with regards to struvite stones, so you can give all those pet owners the best advice you possibly can. Come and learn all about the newest research and treatment options for this common problem in pets! The webinar will be given on the 31st of July at 11.30 am EDT.
And don’t forget! You can also join the webinar on Feline Lower Urinary Tract Management from a Veterinary Technicians point of view, which will take place on the same day at 21.00 Singapore Time!
IVSA and Bayer are coming together to offer you the chance to participate in the first row of an exciting event!
The new report, Companion Animals & the Health of Older Persons, reviews the literature and summarizes the health, social and economic benefits of companion animals and animal-assisted activities and interventions and also provides insights into future research in the field and the ageing community for local and national planning.
