About this course

The ACTH stimulation test is out of vogue? Cannot get DOCP to work in your cases? Never used continuous subcutaneous glucose monitoring in your diabetic dogs at home?

The field of canine endocrinology has changed a lot in the past few years. We will aim to make participants more comfortable and confident in diagnosing and managing a range of canine endocrine disorders.

Participants will be updated on the use of new drugs like DOCP for hypoadrenocorticism, a range of insulin types and GLP-1 agonists for diabetes mellitus, as well as the use of “old” drugs like trilostane used in new ways (once, twice or three times a day). In summary – this will be a highly informative course with lots to learn and discuss from two tutors at the cutting edge of canine endocrinology!
