Fetching relief for pets: What's inflammation got to do with it?

In this 3-part webinar series, compliments of VPL, veterinary clinicians and team members will learn more about:
  • The complex inflammatory process
  • Inflammation’s effect on the many different body systems
  • Modalities for helping manage inflammation
Up to 3 hours* of CE credit is available for participating in each of the three webinars.
 

Breaking down the inflammatory process: What's clinically relevant?

Available On Demand!

CE credit: 1.00 hour* (CE quiz required to receive certificate)

In this 1-hour On Demand presentation, presented by Vetsymposium and VPL, Dr. Van Gels reviews the inflammatory process, simplifying it into its major components: inflammatory mediators, arachidonic acid metabolism cascade, vasodilation, increased vascular permeability, and leukocyte migration. She then describes each component, focusing on how these components are clinically relevant in your practice. Then, you will learn how therapies affect these components to help manage inflammation. The therapeutic options discussed will include corticosteroids, NSAIDs, and nutraceuticals. Lastly, she will describe a protocol for the treatment of keratomalacia as an example of how you can use some of these therapies in practice.

 

Banishing chronic pain: Beyond the NSAIDs

Available On Demand!

CE credit: 1.00 hour* (CE quiz required to receive certificate)

By the end of this 1-hour webinar, presented by Vetsymposium and VPL, you will understand:

  1. The complex pathophysiology of chronic maladaptive pain
  2. The fact that NSAIDs alone are not the answer for chronic maladaptive pain
  3. The science behind nutraceutical anti-inflammatory pain relief
  4. How to integrate a nutraceutical anti-inflammatory agent into a multimodal chronic pain management treatment plan
  5. How to adjust medications when adding nutraceutical anti-inflammatory pain relief to a multimodal pain management strategy

 

Inflammation in periodontal disease—What is the culprit? Bacteria or host

Available On Demand!

CE credit: 1.00 hour* (CE quiz required to receive certificate)

In this 1-hour webinar, presented by Vetsymposium and VPL, Dr. Lobprise will discuss inflammation in periodontal disease. We usually think of infection when we think of periodontal disease, but the process of inflammation as a host response can damage tissues as much, or more, than the infection itself. A comprehensive approach to dealing with chronic periodontal disease looks at modulating that host response, particularly in cases where that response is excessive, as it is in feline stomatitis.
