Unique aspects and challenges in these late lifestages will be covered including integrating your team with care options and owner education. Elective anesthesia and dentistry in older patients is quite routine and we have ways to increase the owner and team comfort. A focus on supporting multimodal therapy, conservative and hospice options and combating compassion fatigue will be included as well as improving patient’s cognitive challenges and aging problem behaviors. The program will conclude with a review of hyperthyroidism and masking or unmasking chronic renal disease and IRIS guidelines for staging and therapy.
