RACE-approved Web Conference

Demystifying When to Spay or Neuter Dogs

As these guidelines emphasize, no two dogs are alike, and their veterinary care should be as individualized as they are. Each dog’s age and lifestyle factors should be considered by the veterinary team when making recommendations—including those related to spaying and neutering. This web conference delves further into this aspect of the guidelines. Available at no charge, this course is facilitated by Phil Bushby, DVM, MS, DACVS, who will provide in-depth direction on the ideal age to spay or neuter dogs and puppies to ensure their highest level of care.

By the end of this RACE-approved course, participants will be able to discuss and advise clients on the proper timing for spaying or neutering; develop an understanding of evidence-based pathology of canine diseases and their propensity for illness based on sterilization timing; and further understand the 2019 AAHA Canine Life Stage Guidelines  task force's findings for life stage recommendations.

This web conference is available at no charge and has been approved for 1.0 hour of continuing education credit for veterinarians and veterinary technicians in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.
