“Inflammation in periodontal disease—What is the culprit? Bacteria or host?”

Now available On Demand!
(Original presentation: Jan. 18, 2017)

Dr. Heidi LobprisePresented by:
Heidi Lobprise, DVM, DAVDC

CE credit:***
1.00 hour

Approximate presentation length:
1 hour (50-minute presentation, 10-minute Q&A)

Presentation Topics:

In this 1-hour webinar, presented by Vetsymposium and VPL, Dr. Lobprise will discuss inflammation in periodontal disease. We usually think of infection when we think of periodontal disease, but the process of inflammation as a host response can damage tissues as much, or more, than the infection itself. A comprehensive approach to dealing with chronic periodontal disease looks at modulating that host response, particularly in cases where that response is excessive, as it is in feline stomatitis.
