14 hot RACE-Approved CEs to check out this June
Check out all the ways to earn your CE credits this month
We are kicking off the summer season with 14 sizzling continuing education (CE) activities available this June! Consider engaging in progressive learning moments this month and change your environment for a more relaxed experience to boost concentration and memory recall (science says it’s true). You’ll not only accumulate those earned RACE®-approved credit hours but also enjoy learning even more.
Veterinary professionals can do just that with dvm360 Flex™, a hybrid learning platform that provides a flexible approach for multimodal learners. For independent learners who prefer in-depth reading and case-based study, they can access the continuing education section within every issue of the dvm360® magazine and digitally on dvm360 Flex™. For our more collaborative learners, we also have a long list of live webinars coming up.
Let’s get started on those CE learning goals. Here’s the June line up:
The “Just Feed Less” Myth for Weight Management
Faculty: Laura Gaylord, DVM, DACVN
Often veterinarians are recommending to “just feed less” to their clients suffering from obesity which can result in pet owners inappropriately reducing foods not intended for weight management, potentially causing deficient nutrient intakes, hungry pets, and ultimately failure in successfully managing the pet’s weight and body condition. Proactively identifying at-risk pets for overweight/obesity, feeding appropriate diets and amounts, monitoring our patients carefully and providing client support can help turn around the pet obesity epidemic.

Lyme disease, caused by B. burgdorferi, is currently the most common vector-borne disease in the United States accounting for >90% of all confirmed cases of vector-borne disease in humans.

Making Rash Decisions When Choosing a Treatment Plan for Your Canine Dermatology Patients. Don’t Forget Your Dermatopical!
Faculty: Karren Prost, DVM, MPH, DACVPM
Dermatopicals are an often underutilized, but essential, component of multimodal management of canine patients with atopic dermatitis. Veterinarians are quick to reach for anti-itch therapy to provide immediate relief, but these products do not address the defective skin barriers that contribute to the disease pathogenesis. Understand canine atopic dermatitis, and deep dive into the skin as an organ and the skin layers to review the current understanding of the skin barrier changes present in patients with atopic dermatitis. Learn the various benefits that dermatopical therapy can provide in these patients.
