Lecture program - 
Opioid Limited Anesthesia
Opioid backorders and shortages have been affecting veterinary medicine for the last few years. It is the hot topic of blogs, social media posts, anesthesia groups, and staff meetings everywhere. There are other options! This lecture will discuss the current predicament and offer solutions that will still provide your patients with adequate analgesia using a multi-modal approach.
Pain Management in Dogs and Cats
This lecture covers an overview of the various definitions surrounding the term, “pain.” Methods for defining and describing pain will be discussed. Case scenarios will be utilized to give attendees practical, real-life examples of how we can identify and treat pain. During this two-hour lecture we will then delve into approaches to treatment and tailoring the analgesic plan to fit the patient’s needs.
