Continuing Education by Ceva Animal Health

COURSE OVERVIEW

As our pets age, many of the health problems that become more common, also have associated behavioral changes. Some behavioral problems due to conditions such as canine cognitive decline, can be challenging to differentiate from primary medical conditions. This course will prepare attendees to recognize the behavioral signs of medical conditions common to the aging pet. The diagnosis of canine cognitive decline will be covered in some detail. Finally, the variety of different interventions available for improving the health and welfare of our senior pets will be detailed.
