Geriatric care and managing osteoarthritis with Dr Wendy Baltzer

View descriptionShare

We welcome back Dr Wendy Baltzer to discuss geriatric and osteoarthritis management. Topics discussed include:

  • When is a pet considered geriatric and what factors can affect this stage of life.
  • Dr Baltzer regularly performs mid-life assessments in her patients. She explains what this involves and how her approach can differ between cats and dogs.
  • Cats affected with osteoarthritis will display different symptoms to dogs. Wendy discussed what pet owners should be looking for.
  • The impact that diet can have and how it needs to change as pets age.
  • Once there's a diagnosis of OA, what does a personalised management plan look like?
  • Dr Wendy talks about the different modalities that she uses to manage OA and what she is trying to achieve with these.
  • How can supplements help and what part they play in managing OA?
  • When is it appropriate to use NSAIDS?
  • Wendy goes in depth on recognising the end-of-life stage in dogs and cats and how to navigate this with pet owners.
