Webinar – 6/26/24 – Circle of Care: Amputation Pain Solutions & Home Recovery Insights for Amputee Pets & Their People – HSVMA

June 26 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM PDT

Dog who has had front leg amputated stands on green grass

Amputations are major surgeries that are painful not only intraoperatively, but can also be painful for a fairly long time post-operatively. The longer recovery time from pain is due to the large areas of soft tissue involvement at the surgery site and the severing of numerous, some fairly large, nerves. The latter initiates neuropathic pain, which can be difficult to control. If the amputation is done because of a painful lesion, the pre-existing pain will exacerbate the intra- and post-operative pain. Dr Grubb will discuss pre-, intra-and post-operative analgesic strategies.

Attendees will learn about the most immediate concerns that pet parents have when their dog or cat has had a limb amputation. The goal is to encourage discussion before and after surgery, in order to facilitate a smoother recovery with less emotional burden on the pet parent as well as the veterinary team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the normal pain pathway
  • Discuss the changes in the pain pathway with pre-existing pain
  • Define neuropathic pain and the role in post-amputation pain
  • Explore pre-, intra-and post-operative analgesic strategies
  • Develop tools to address the important discussion points for the pet parent such as potential mobility challenges and realistic expectations during and after recover

This webinar is FREE for all attendees.
1.5 hours of RACE CE credits (medical) will be available for HSVMA members only (pending approval).
