Oct 3, 2020 9:00AM - 10:55AM EDT: Case-Based Approach to Acute Kidney Injury in Dogs and Cats

  • Registration Closed

Attendees will progress at their own pace through online, case-based learning modules focused on acute kidney injury (AKI) in dogs and cats. Real-time feedback is provided as participants practice developing empirical treatment plans based on likely differential diagnoses. The modules focus on best practices for fluid therapy for patients with AKI. In the second hour, participants will advance through additional cases of acute kidney injury (AKI) in dogs and cats. As veterinarians progress through the modules, they will manage cases with comorbidities, less common etiologies of AKI, and complications related to AKI management.

Learning Objectives:
After this session the participant will be able to:
1) Identify patients at risk for and with acute kidney injury (AKI) 2) Develop a treatment plan for a dog or cat that includes appropriate fluid therapy, empirical antibiotic therapy, and supportive therapies
3) Understand how to monitor the patient with AKI
4) Estimate prognosis for dogs and cats with acute kidney injury (AKI) based on etiology and initial response to therapy
5) Adjust the fluid plan according the patient’s response to therapy
6) Manage complications in the canine or feline patient with AKI
