Atlantic City

During this dvm360® interview, Dr Laila Proenca details errors made when rabbit patients present with this gastrointestinal syndrome

In this dvm360® interview at the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Laila Proenca, MV, DVM, MS, PhD, DACZM, CEO and founder of VetAhead, highlighted common flaws involved in diagnosing and treating gastrointestinal (GI) stasis in rabbits.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.
