At VetzPetz we aim to bring together as many specialists as possible to discuss their approach to mobility in practice. With thought leaders and experts from around the world sharing best practices and management techniques, the veterinary community will be equipped with the knowledge they need to deliver 5-star care to their mobility patients.
In this two-part free CPD series with CPD4Vets , experts from the US, Italy and the UK examine protocols surrounding long-term, holistic treatment of osteoarthritis through both a referral and initial opinion setting.
Drs. Brian Beale, Bruno Peirone and Kinley Smith share their unique approach to mobility, collaborating to explore both traditional and non-traditional therapies and new avenues in joint health.
The full CPD session is at the bottom of this page.
