Equine Dentistry: When to Tackle What: DIY or refer?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions. The simple extraction that turned into an 8-hour marathon. The client on the phone every 30 minutes asking if you have finished yet? The "while you are here" job that ends up going pear shaped. This talk will detail some tricks of the trade that will help you to plan for success and avoid those situations in which you wish you never started. From careful case selection to owner discussions pre-surgery, how to quote for extractions and knowing when to stop, and most importantly when to ask for help! Discussions will be illustrated with personal anecdotes of real cases (names will be changed to protect the not-so innocent)
