Course Description:

What are the unique veterinary needs of the competitor who travels extensively across the US or across the world to compete in agility and how can you, as their veterinarian, contribute to a safe travel plan? What are appropriate recommendations to prepare for travel via air or land with dogs of all sizes? How do you maintain biosecurity and infection control in diverse geographic areas? Is it appropriate to prescribe drugs such as metronidazole or carprofen “just in case” they’re needed?


This event is pending approval for continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize the American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ (AAVSB) Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE).
