About The Topic

It is estimated that osteoarthritis (OA) affects up to 20% of dogs over 1 year of age. Given the widespread nature of the problem and the extensive range of products available all claiming to help, where do we start? How do we guide our clients to make an informed decision about how to manage OA? This webinar will explore some of the key components of successful management of OA, and will look at the evidence behind why we do what we do.

Dr. John Punke graduated from the Veterinary College at the University of Georgia as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2003.
