Cranial cruciate ligament disease
The most common canine orthopaedic disease, yet one of the most poorly understood. This webinar will bring into focus current understanding of disease aetiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment options and outcomes. Light will be shed on the diverse range of treatment options, with an evaluation of the evidence to support (or possibly refute) their use. Throughout the webinar, practical tips and tricks will be provided for incorporation into your practice to improve early detection and treatment.
