Intravenous Lipid Therapy for Dogs and Cats

 

Laura Ateca, VMD, DACVECC

Tuesday, September 20, 2016
7:00pm

Intravenous lipid therapy is a relatively new treatment for toxicities in companion animals and much about it is still not fully understood. Its more recent popularity in veterinary medicine has inspired many publications and debates on its effectiveness. During this lecture, we will delve into the general methods of approach to toxicities in pets, as well as discuss the theories behind lipid therapy’s mode of action and the clinical evidence behind its use. Intravenous lipid therapy is an innovative and possibly life saving technique that could raise the bar for quality patient care in years to come. Join us as we investigate the various facets of this promising new procedure.
