At the end of this Web conference, you will:

  • Be aware of the clinical manifestations of hypothyroidism and their relative frequency

  • Understand therapeutic options and their appropriate use and monitoring

How Do We Know They Hurt? Looking For, Recognizing, and Assessing Acute Pain in Cats

Dec. 14-27, 2015

Speaker: Dr. Sheilah Robertson

Brought to you by Elanco

One of the main obstacles to treating acute pain in cats is our ability to recognize and in some way measure their pain. Assessment of pain relies heavily on understanding feline behavior and how this changes due to illness or after traumatic injuries and surgery. Fear, stress and pain are unpleasant emotions that must be addressed in a clinical setting to ensure good welfare and positive outcomes. This learning session will be based on real-life cases and will show images and videos that demonstrate the benefits of robust, multimodal analgesic protocols.

At this presentation, participants will:

  • Learn why anticipating and recognizing pain is vital to a good outcome for our feline patients
  • Learn which validated feline-specific pain tools are available for assessing acute pain and how to use these tools
  • Leave with skills and tools they can use immediately in a clinical setting
