Vestibular Syndrome: Patient Evaluation and Diagnostic Workup for the General Practitioner


Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 – 7:00 P.M. To 8:30 P.M. (PST)


Please join Dr. Burkland for a free ACCESS Online CE lecture.

This program will review vestibular syndrome in dogs and cats – including sharing practical tips for patient evaluation, basic neuroanatomical localization, differential diagnoses, and diagnostic approach with an emphasis on tests available to the general practitioner.

Program Agenda:

  • Brief neuroanatomy review

  • Neurological Exam & neuroanatomical localization

  • Differential diagnoses

  • Diagnostic Approach to the vestibular patient

  • Nursing and supportive care

  • Case examples

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the general neuroanatomical basis of peripheral vs. central vestibular disease.

  • Generate and prioritize a list of differential diagnoses for the vestibular patient based on signalment, progression of signs, and neurolocalization.

  • Facilitate extra-cranial diagnostic workup of the vestibular patient in a general practice (or emergency) setting.

  • Review nursing and supportive care for the vestibular patient.

As with all of our CE’s, all veterinary professionals are welcome, so register today, and I look forward to sharing more with you on Tuesday evening, November 2nd, 2021.
