(SA181) Euthanasia Techniques for Companion Animals: What Every Veterinarian Should Know

Monday, March 5
10:00 AM - 10:50 AM
MBCC, Breakers K, Level 2

CE Credits: 1

This lecture is designed to educate veterinarians and technicians on various AVMA-approved euthanasia techniques for dogs, cats, and exotics. Special focus will be applied to techniques that are challenging for veterinarians and their staff, such as intravenous injections in debilitated animals. We will review all approved techniques, discuss what makes some superior to others given the situation, and provide skills anyone can use. Euthanasia goes way beyond just being able to give an IV injection.
