Course Focus and Learning Objectives

This continuing education course was made possible through an educational partnership with Trupanion.

Veterinary practitioners, and team members, need to be aware of patient health trends. However, it can be very difficult to monitor changes in those trends. An example is the health concerns of popular purebred dogs. This course will examine the medical condition trends for various breeds. The presenter will share the analytical data of the cohesive database of Trupanion medical records, including expected treatment costs, leveraging this information to the benefit of veterinarians and their patients.

This course is based on the archive of the webinar and is appropriate for veterinarians, credentialed technicians, and practice team members, along with vet and tech school students.

After completion of this course veterinarians, credentialed veterinary technicians, and practice team members, will be more aware of some current medical condition trends and can incorporate them into their medical services, from diagnosis to client education.
