Lifesaving Workshop: Emergency VetMed in General Practice

Lifesaving Workshop: Emergency VetMed in General Practice

With the surge in pet owners post-COVID, GP veterinary hospitals are noticing an increase in last-minute, rush-to-the-vet situations that can be stressful for our practices to manage without the right training, tools and knowledge. Even if we send our patients to the Emergency and Referral hospitals, the wait times can be gruelling and sometimes up to 10+ hours long! This is why we’re teaming up with Dr. Barbara Bryer, Head of Emergency at Animal Health Partners in Toronto, ON to discuss how to manage the top 10 pet emergencies we commonly encounter in our practices and how to smoothly transfer them to ER.

Join us for this in-person event, hosted in Mississauga, ON, where Dr. Bryer will lecture and engage attendees to collaborate on enhancing patient care during emergency situations. We’ll make sure to keep you fueled and happy, with brunch and finger foods during the session!
