The Pet Professional Guild is hosting a live 90-minute webinar on pet thyroid disease at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, March 17. The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Jean Dodds, a veterinarian from southern California who founded Hemopet - the first non-profit national animal blood bank.
The following is a description of the topics to be covered during the webinar (from the Pet Professional Guild website):
“Hypothyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder of dogs, and up to 90% of cases result from an autoimmune disease that progressively destroys the thyroid gland (autoimmune thyroiditis). Once more than 70% of the gland is destroyed by this process, classical clinical signs of hypothyroidism appear. Because the condition is heritable, it has significant genetic implications for breeding stock.
Accurate diagnosis of the early stages of autoimmune thyroiditis offers important genetic and clinical options for prompt intervention and case management. It is often difficult to make a definitive diagnosis.”
The cost for the webinar is $20 for members of the Pet Professional Guild and $25 for non-members. Click here to register for the webinar.
