Orthopedic Surgery and Care in the Shelter

January 2018 by Ursula Krotscheck, DVM, DACVS

Audience: Veterinary Team

Video Length: 55 minutes

Shelters commonly encounter dogs and cats with orthopedic injuries. These cases may be challenging to manage, particularly when treatment options may be restricted by limited resources, availability of surgical consultations, and/or other practical considerations. This workshop will provide attendees with treatment and management options for a number of different case presentations, including which may be candidates for casting, which require surgery, and which should be referred to a specialist. This presentation was recorded at the 2017 ASPCA-Cornell Maddie's Shelter Medicine Conference.
