Course Focus and Learning Objectives

VetCE on Demand: Common Drug Interactions in Veterinary Medicine utilizes the archive of a live presentation under the same name.

Knowing common drug interactions associated with medications given in veterinary medicine is an important component in caring for patients to ensure they have the longest, healthiest life possible. This course discusses the specifics behind drug interactions in veterinary medicine and how these interactions can be identified before they become detrimental to patients. It also looks at specific mediations and mechanisms that cause drug interactions and ways to communicate these interactions to clients.

At the end of the course participants should be able to:

  • list the core concepts that encompass drug interactions in veterinary medicine
  • compare and contrast inducers and inhibitors and how they impact drug metabolism
  • explain the ways a drug interaction can manifest in veterinary patients
  • list general medications that can cause “additive drug interactions”
  • discuss the importance of key questions to ask when talking with clients about potential drug interactions
