About this course
Is the ACTH stimulation test the optimum test to diagnose Cushing’s syndrome? Cannot get DOCP to work in your cases? Never used continuous subcutaneous glucose monitoring in your diabetic dogs at home? Do you really need to measure basal hormone values when you are using dynamic testing? Is the urinary corticoid creatinine ratio a valuable asset in ruling in or ruling out Cushing’s syndrome?
The field of canine endocrinology has changed a lot in the past few years. During this course we will aim to make you more comfortable and confident in diagnosing and managing a range of canine endocrine disorders. You will be updated on the rational use of drugs such as DOCP and prednisolone for hypoadrenocorticism and a range of insulin types and GLP-1 agonists for diabetes mellitus. In addition we will discuss the use of and monitoring of “old” drugs like trilostane used in new ways and the diagnosis and monitoring of hypothyroidism.
