Antibiotics in Veterinary Dentistry

A LIVE webinar to help you decide when, and if, you should use antibiotics in your dental patient

Antibiotic therapy has traditionally been considered a pillar treatment in veterinary denistry, but do we have the evidence to support their frequent use in our dental patients?

The oral cavity has a diverse and prolific bacterial population. Plaque bacteria are certainly the inciting cause for many dental diseases, but what is the best way to defeat this powerful enemy in the veterinary patient?

This webinar will help answer the many questions surrounding antimicrobial use in the veterinary dental patient:

What are the trending thoughts of board-cetified veterinary dentists? Should antibiotics be used for routine dental cleanings and extractions? Should they be standard therapy in the treatment of periodontal disease? What dental cases are they truly beneficial for? What role has the veterinary profession played in the global antimicrobial resistance? What is on the horizon in dental antimicrobial therapy for dogs and cats?

This 1 Hour RACE Approved Interactive Webinar Will Help You:

  • Better understand the history of antibiotic use in veterinary dentistry
  • Challenge some of the traditional thoughts on antibiotic therapy in the dental patient
  • Learn more about the true risk of bacteremia associated with dental disease and oral procedures
  • Develop a strategy for appropriate antibiotic therapy in veterinary dental cases and avoid their overuse
  • Don't miss this one hour webinar opportunity to earn CE credits!

"Just wanted to say how great the FelineDentistry CE was! It was amazing, important and pertinent to go over the behavior and handling part for cats. That was such forward thinking! I love the client manual, so thank you for that too! Not only was the information great, but it was very refreshingly well-rounded CE. Thanks so much again. We are all lucky to have taken this course!
