Webinar by Dr William Dernell
Advanced and severe disease pathology affecting the extremities in small animals often brings the veterinary clinician to the point of considering limb amputation for either cure or palliation. Because amputation is often a difficult decision for animal owners and because, in some cases, other circumstances result in amputation being contraindicated, knowledge of limb salvage options is important for therapy recommendations and decisions. This presentation will discuss the indications for, applications of and potential complications of recent advances in limb salvage techniques for veterinary patients. Although many practicing veterinarians may not perform these more advanced treatments directly, knowledge of their potential application and the important aspects of follow up care can greatly benefit their patients and clients.
