COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is a comprehensive review of the most contemporary concepts of pain management in dogs and cats, from neurobiology to neuropharmacology to physical modalities, and "pulling it all together" in applications across a broad spectrum of clinical presentations.

The material will allow the practitioner to develop a deep understanding of pain management principles, broaden their clinical perspectives, and lead to practical enhancements of patient care in their practices. The course may also be used as a review and study tool for IVAPM's Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner (CVPP) examination.
