Endocrinology is another of the popular subjects in Dr. Blount's "Practical" Seminar Series. In this Seminar you'll gather a wealth of information you can put to use immediately in your clinic, plus satisfy your total requirement of 17 CE Hours for 2018.

This Seminar will cover the Endocrinology topics most commonly seen in small animal practice such as Addison's Disease, Cushing's Syndrome, Diabetes Mellitus and Insipidus, Thyroid and Calcium disorders, Growth Hormone disorders, and Insulinoma.

As these hormonal diseases present numerous health care challenges, we'll focus on diagnosis and treatment in the trenches. For example, you'll get answers to the following questions and many more:

  • Is ACTH stim or Low Dose Dex better for diagnosing Hyperadrenocorticism? Endogenous ACTH? Baseline Cortisol? Urine cortisol:creatinine?
  • How do you diagnose and treat Hypercalcemia? When is it clinically significant?
  • When is it safe and appropriate to do a water deprivation test?
  • Can Hypothyroidism problems as extreme as paralysis, heart disease and aggressive behavior?
  • What is the best way to treat the Hyperthyroid cat?
  • Which insulin is best for dogs and cats? How do you keep the Diabetic Ketoacidotic patient alive long enough for the insulin to work?
