The Cost of Care and The Veterinarian - Pet Owner Partnership

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    The pain of arthritis (osteoarthritis or OA) adversely impacts the lives of dogs and cats as well as the activities we can share in with them. But there is hope for these animals - beyond a prescription of pain pills.

    We have many treatment modalities available to help these patients, but they do come with a price tag. So, how can pet owners afford it all? In this segment (which originally aired as part of Session IV of the Arthritis Summit) Dr. Wendy Hauser discusses tools that can help pet owners understand care recommendations, barriers to OA care, and how pet owners can work effectively with veterinarians to achieve the best outcomes for their pet. Discussion will include:

    - The concepts of 'price of care' versus the 'cost of care'
    - Real world price of care data (for osteoarthritis) that pet owners face
    - Tools that can help pet owners afford desired pet care
    - Ways that pet owners and veterinarians can partner to achieve positive co-created health outcomes for pets
