SDMA Clinical Utility in Small Animal Medicine

SDMA is a widely available commercial test that has revolutionized how we detect kidney disease in small animal veterinary medicine.  Despite SDMA’s success in measuring/estimating a decreased GFR, we must remain diligent in our practices to appropriately use this biomarker in regards to our patients’ healthcare. During this course we will discuss the origin, science and literature available in regards to the veterinary use of SDMA, then we will discuss several clinical cases in which SDMA values may or may not have helped in achieving an accurate diagnosis.

AVOID CAT'TASTROPHE: Updates on Anesthesia & Analgesia for Cats

Cats present some unique anesthetic & analgesic challenges and are at higher risk than dogs for anesthesia-related mortality. Small body size, fight/flight tendencies and species-specific responses to drugs can complicate feline anesthesia and analgesia. Addressing specific cat concerns can make anesthesia safer and analgesia more effective. Cat-specific anesthetic and pain management drugs and techniques, along with updates on feline-specific literature and new drugs are covered in this 95 minute On-Demand course.
