Osteoarthritis Workshop

Wales Veterinary Science Centre, Y Buarth, Aberystwyth Dyfed, SY23 1ND

The workshop will focus on a practical approach to managing canine osteoarthritis in practice. Through a combination of lectures and practicals it will address current management principles and their limitations and consider how adopting a more holistic management approach can improve clinical outcomes. Attendees will have the opportunity to improve their gait analysis and palpation skills as well as being introduced to novel pain management tools such as exercise therapy, acupuncture and electrotherapies.

Delegates will leave this workshop having considered and feeling confident in:

Osteoarthritis - how to move beyond nonsteroidal therapy    
How do I improve my gait analysis skills    
Osteoarthritis - what other management options can I introduce in clinical practice    
Acupuncture in clinical practice - the science behind the needle
