Pain Medications and Canine Immune Function

In this podcast we bring you a research update with Dr. Amy DeClue, Assistant Professor of Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. DeClue was funded by CHF to investigate whether any of the common pain medications used in dogs could inadvertently suppress the immune system, leaving dogs susceptible to infection after surgery or a major procedure.

A transcript of this podcast is also available for those who prefer to read the interview.

This podcast was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust, a KeyBank Trust.
