“Zennovation in Sedation:
Rethinking What Is Possible”
Presented by: Dr. Julie Kluxdal
In this educational presentation, we will discuss sedation in dogs. The foundation will be set by reviewing the basic physiology behind commonly used sedatives in dogs. We will discuss the most commonly used sedatives and reversal agents, and introduce a novel sedative.
