Medical Must Knows for Boarding Staff



Dr. Kate Boatright

Join a practicing veterinarian to discuss some of the most commonly prescribed medications that your boarders may by receiving, including insulin, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs), allergy, and heart medications. We will discuss must-know facts about these medications and the conditions they are prescribed to treat. Monitoring of pets will be discussed as well as potential emergencies that may arise. This session will serve as a general guide for staff who may be handling and administering medications and monitoring pets during their stay at a boarding facility. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions about medications and conditions they have seen in their daily work.
