After completing the program, the veterinarian and veterinary technician will understand:

  • How to recognize clues which may point towards a specific etiologic agent as the primary cause of canine infectious respiratory disease complex (CIRD), despite the similarity of clinical signs.
  • The basic structure, transmission, clinical manifestations, treatment and prevention of the most common viral and bacterial pathogens causing CIRD.
  • How to differentiate between the types of diagnostic investigations appropriate for individual cases of pets with respiratory signs, as well as how to sample populations of dogs.
  • Questions to ask when determining the course of treatment.
  • Implementation protocols to prevent the spread of infectious agents and decrease the risk of a CIRD outbreak occurring in your facility.

Case based scenarios include:

  • Tracheobronchitis
