The New Science of Feline OA Pain (1.5 CE Hrs):

Nearly 40% of all cats have clinical signs of osteoarthritis, and 90% of cats over age 12 have radiographic evidence of OA. A few of the biggest hurdles in diagnosing OA in cats is getting them into the clinic for examination and having a safe and effective treatment option to control their symptoms.
 Explore resources to help your practice reach out to cat owners about feline arthritis, and learn about the science behind Solensia, an FDA approved monthly injectable monoclonal antibody therapy for providing long-lasting control of OA pain in cats.

You can park in the San Pedro Garage on the corner of Market and San Pedro, and the restaurant will validate.
