3 articles recapping pain management lectures from the Directions in Veterinary Medicine symposium in Miami, Florida
This weekend we held our Directions in Veterinary Medicine symposium focused on pain management at a debut location in Miami, Florida. The lectures informed attendees on a host of knowledge from diagnostics to therapeutics to treatment plans and everything else in between.
We highlighted 3 articles below with key takeaways from these discussions:
1. Triage and stabilization of abdominal pain: Mariana Pardo, BVSc, MV, DACVECC, covers how she would approach a mock case study of a schnauzer presenting with abdominal pain.
2. Tools for addressing osteoarthritis pain: Drs Curtis Dewey; Mario D. Cabrera; and Matthew Brunke teamed up to offer advice on managing painful joint conditions.
3. Approaching the brachycephalic dog in critical condition: In this discussion, this time Pardo is joined by Feliza Lopez, LVT, VTS (ECC) to focus on a mock case study that reviewed triage, comorbidities, and restraint of a French bulldog.
