Small mammal veterinarians from Canada, US and Mexico attended the symposium taught by Drs. Angela Lenox, and Vittorio Capello. Both are board-certified in small mammal medicine and surgery and Dr. Capello even came all the way from Milan, Italy to teach the course!
The symposium reviewed best in care diagnostic, medical (including pain control), anesthetic and surgical practices for middle ear infections, nasal and nasolacrimal duct infections, malocclusion, and dental abscesses.
At Brook-Falls we see so many rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas with these diseases. It was very exciting to learn new ways we can help our patients with surgical procedures that potentially can cure their problems, or offer the best in palliative care.
