Continuing Education Materials

​Thank you for visiting the Center for Companion Animal Studies continuing education lecture series. The lectures posted to this page were all produced by a veterinarian actively doing research in the Center, using donations. You are welcome to view any of the lectures at no charge. However, if you find the materials in a lecture to benefit you, your hospital or your clients, it would be wonderful if you could make a donation to the Center's "Young Investigator Awards" program. These research funds are used to support clinical, non-fatal research and each of the grants must have a veterinary student as a research collaborator.

The suggested donation is $25 for a 15 minute abstract and $75 for a 50 minute lecture; however, any donation higher or lower than the suggested amount is outstanding!

If you can make a donation, please click on the "Make a gift" icon below, or visit the Center for Companion Animal Studies giving page. Please send any comments to
