About The Webinar

Toxic and metabolic diseases affecting the nervous system are an important consideration for dogs and cats which have predominantly brain dysfunction and very likely also have systemic health issues. The prognosis for most of these cases is actually quite good if the underlying cause can be dealt with or in the case of toxins, actually just disappear. These diseases cause symmetrical dysfunction of the nervous system but may not result in classic signs of CNS disease such as postural reaction deficits and ataxia. In this session we will discuss the general approach to toxin exposure that has affected the nervous system and then we will deal with some of the most common toxicities seen in veterinary medicine. We will also cover the 2 most common metabolic issues which affect the CNS, being hepatic encephalopathy and hypoglycemia.
