Programs Included in this Bundle
  1. Skinny Old Cats: Providing Quality Care and Therapies for Geriatric Felines
    Activity Description:
    In cats, life expectancy has risen, on average, to 14–16 years of age due to better vaccination protocols, nutritional counseling, nutritionally balanced feline-specific diets, and dental hygiene. As cats live longer, they begin to manifest age-related diseases such as kidney failure, osteoarthritis, anorexia, hyperthyroidism, and hypertension. Providing quality drug therapies for geriatric cats strongly impacts quality of life for those cats. Community pharmacists play a valuable role in ensuring access to high quality and palatable medical therapies for geriatric feline patients.

    Learning Objectives - Pharmacists
    1. Describe common disease states affecting geriatric cats
    2. List treatment strategies for feline geriatric disease
    3. Discuss the role of the community pharmacist in providing care, compounds, and counseling for geriatric feline patients
    4. Identify 10 common signs of sickness in geriatric cats

  2. A Century of Feeding Elk During Winter in Wyoming: a Wildlife Disease Management Conundrum
    Activity Description:
    Management of disease in wildlife poses many challenges, from surveillance of free-ranging animals to the prevention of disease spillover from wildlife to livestock. Brucellosis is endemic among elk and bison in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, where recent infections in cattle have been linked to spatial and temporal overlap with elk. Brucellosis outbreaks in livestock threaten the livestock industry with potential interstate trade restrictions and costly testing sanctions. This presentation will help broaden pharmacists' and technicians' understanding and perception of public health and disease that includes consideration of diseases in wildlife that commonly cross the livestock-wildlife boundary.

    Learning Objectives - Pharmacists
    1. Describe the biological and social conditions that lead to the establishment of, and continue to facilitate the operation of, winter elk feedgrounds in Wyoming
    2. Contrast the benefits and drawbacks of large-scale supplemental feeding of elk and bison during winter in Wyoming
    3. Identify future management actions to minimize spread of infectious diseases among wildlife while reducing disease spillover to domestic livestock

  3. Canine and Feline Pain Management: An Update
    Activity Description:
    One of the central challenges in treating the veterinary patient is appropriately and effectively managing both acute and chronic pain. The veterinarian and veterinary pharmacist must rely on an array of pain management strategies in order to alleviate pain and improve patient outcomes and quality of life. This session will assist the veterinary pharmacist in recognizing pain in canines and felines and developing appropriate pain management regimens for specific clinical scenarios, including the use of new analgesics and non-pharmacologic pain management options.

    Learning Objectives - Pharmacists
    1. Recall standards of therapy for proper canine and feline pain control
    2. Identify new analgesics and novel methods for canine and feline pain control
    3. Recognize non-pharmacologic pain management options for canine and felines
    4. Develop appropriate pain management regimens for specific canine and feline clinical scenarios

  4. Canine Chronic Valvular Heart Disease
    Activity Description:
    Most of the cardiac medications used in chronic valvular heart disease can be obtained from a community pharmacy. This can increase the potential for medication errors without proper education on the dose, frequency, and adverse effects of medications. This continuing education presentation will provide pharmacists and technicians the education to provide optimal patient care.

    Learning Objectives - Pharmacists
    1. Compare and contrast the differences in canine versus human heart disease
    2. Review pathophysiology of canine chronic valvular heart disease
    3. Evaluate pharmacotherapy options in canines with heart disease
