Management and treatment of osteoarthritis in cats

About this event

PLEASE NOTE THE WEBINAR WILL START AT 7PM AND NOT 7H30PM AS PER THE EMAIL INVITATION

The myths and legends in managing osteoarthritis in our feline patients is great. Cats are not just simply small dogs when it comes to managing OA in cats. The incidence of OA in geriatric cats is high based on radiographic evidence but the diagnosis of OA in cats is often a lot lower. The recognition of lameness in cats can be challenging and sensitising owners to the subtle changes of OA in cats is a challenge. The options for medication to treat OA in cats is more limited compared to dogs. There is a great concern over renal function as the prevalence of kidney disease in geriatric cats in higher compared to dogs. NSAIDs are an important tool is our armamentarium but what are the risks. This makes the management of OA in cats more challenging.

We will be applying for CPD accreditation for this talk.

Looking forward to meeting you all online.
