Breed-Specific Medicine CE

Location: Embassy Suites Brooks Hotel and Spa
San Antonio, TX
Speaker: Nan Boss, DVM
Topic: Breed-Specific Medicine: Using Genetics to Elevate
Quality of Care


Genetics and phenotype affect almost every area of practice, from anesthesia to cardiology, cancer to orthopedics, behavior to nutrition and much more. Along with diagnosis and treatment of breed-related problems, we can also use breed susceptibility and DNA testing to enhance our delivery of preventive care.  Join us for a deep dive into every aspect of breed-specific health care for both cats and dogs.

During this program, you will learn:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of preventable, heritable disorders of dogs and cats
  • Breed-based anesthesia and surgical considerations
  • How tailoring your recommendations to a patient’s specific risks can improve their quality and length of life, strengthen client relationships, and grow your practice

Bring your team leaders! When you attend this workshop, you will be challenged to develop an action plan for your practice. With Dr. Boss’ guidance, decide how you will turn what you’ve learned into tangible benefits for your patients and your office.

“Practicing better medicine is all about being a better teacher…I don’t want to make decisions for my clients as to what care their pets receive. I want them to make the decisions, based on good, up to date information and their own preferences.” -Nan Boss, DVM
