In Case of Emergency: Gaining Confidence for Critical Care Cases

2022 Midwest Veterinary Conference Preview See Series »

When it comes to emergencies, veterinary professionals need to be able to think on their feet and make fast decisions. A large part of that is knowing how to identify and interpret clinical signs, but feeling confident enough to do so accurately and quickly also has a big impact on case outcomes.

In this episode, we continue our 2022 Midwest Veterinary Conference Preview Series with Dr. Christopher Byers, board-certified veterinary emergency, critical care, and small animal internal medicine specialist. He shares a sneak peek at his MVC sessions, which are aimed at providing practical approaches to some of the most common small animal emergencies the everyday practitioner encounters—and boosting their confidence in treating these cases.

To up your critical care game, sign up for Dr. Byers' Pet Animal Critical Care sessions on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022. This track will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing as part of MVC Virtual. Special thanks to Dechra Veterinary Products for supporting Dr. Byers' sessions.
