  • Registration Closed

Attendees will progress at their own pace through online, case-based learning modules focused on chronic kidney disease (CKD) in dogs and cats. Real-time feedback is provided as participants practice diagnosing CKD and assigning IRIS stages and substages. Participants will practice developing customized management plans for patients with CKD focused prolonging survival time and optimizing quality of life. In the second hour, participants will advance through additional cases of dogs and cats with chronic kidney disease (CKD). As veterinarians progress through the modules, they will manage cases with comorbidities that impact the diagnostic approach and require more specialized therapies. Learning Objectives:

After this session the participant will be able to:
1) Identify patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and understand how IRIS staging and substaging can be utilized in the clinic
2) Develop an individualized treatment plan to help slow progression of CKD in a dog or cat
3) Develop an individualized treatment plan to optimize quality of life of a dog or cat with CKD
4) Identify and manage acute-on-chronic kidney disease 5) Identify and make treatment recommendations for the patient with ureterolithiasis
6) Develop diagnostic and therapeutic plans for dogs with renal proteinuria of varying severity
