Duncan Lascelles and John Innes in conversation on osteoarthritis

Hosted Thursday 14th May 2020 19:30 (BST)

Due to current circumstances - pet owners are spending more time with their pets, increasing the likelihood that they will spot the subtle signs of osteoarthritis. Yet in adherence to recent RCVS guidelines to reduce in-clinic footfall, non-urgent checks are inhibited in current circumstances. As vets continue to serve as their clients’ trusted advisors when it comes to pet mobility, Duncan & John will explore how best to stage arthritis in teleconsultations. This session will consider appropriate treatment options that are in the best interests of both the pet and the veterinary practice.
