Three Emergency and Critical Care CE’s in Three Weeks!

ACCESS has had a busy few weeks when it comes to CEs at three of our hospitals. First off, Dr. Jodi McKenna, our critical care specialist in the South Bay, gave her CE lecture on Hepatic Encephalopathy and How to Treat It.

It was great to remind everyone that we are available 24/7 for emergencies and critical care.

Then, Dr. Jennifer Geiger, one of our emergency overnight veterinarians in the San Fernando Valley, gave a lecture entitled Shock! The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Everyone was shocked that it turned into a great day because of how much they learned.

Finally, Dr. Mike Becker, from our emergency and critical care department in Culver City, lectured on the Use of Antibiotics is Selected Emergency Situations. Of course, we are happy to help patients in not just selected ones, but all emergency situations!

A Continuing Education event for Veterinary Technicians…

Chocolate! Humans may love it, but it’s awful for cats and dogs. So are grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, nicotine, onion/garlic, bread dough (raw), zinc pennies, xylitol, spot-on flea products, illicit drugs, NSAIDs, and, wait for it, tremorogenic mycotoxins!

To find out more, join Dr. Hickey for a lecture and lab on indoor toxins, how to recognize symptons, and what treatment should be considered.

Time: 6:30 pm – Refreshments and introduction | 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Lecture and Lab
