Two specialists in small animal joint health will speak at a free clinical study update day organised by nutritional supplements firm Lintbells next month.
It follows a research study conducted by the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), which resulted in the first clinical proof of the effects of joint supplementation on canine mobility in the home environment.
Matthew Pead, lead investigator at the RVC, will give more information about the study and Karen Perry, lecturer in small animal surgery, will talk about non-surgical management of osteoarthritis.
The day will also offer vet nurses the chance to take part in a CPD session during the afternoon, which is also free, with topics to include: How to run successful clinics, with a focus on senior pets and merchandising – how to increase revenue in practice.
Brand manager at Lintbells Anna Prest said: “This was a groundbreaking study, using state of the art activity monitors to measure the effect of YUMOVE over a six-week period. It’s the first time a joint supplement has been clinically proven and in such a short time scale and we are delighted Matthew and Karen, who are both highly regarded veterinarians, will be explaining the significance of the study at this event.
“We hope vets, head nurses and practice managers will find the morning session of interest. The CPD course in the afternoon is likely to be most relevant to practice nurses and managers, and we are confident it will be of huge benefit to practices.”
The clinical study day takes place in Maidstone, Kent, on Tuesday, June 17. For more information and to reserve a place, email firstname.lastname@example.org or book by telephone on 01462 790886.
