CRP: What’s Your Superpower? Detect and Monitor Systemic Inflammation in Dogs in Real Time
A highly sensitive and specific marker of systemic inflammation in dogs, C-reactive protein (CRP) aids veterinarians in detecting, treating, and monitoring systemic inflammatory response—often before other diagnostics or clinical symptoms reveal it. CRP testing has been a mainstay in Japan and Europe for several decades. Join Dr. Graham Bilbrough as he describes the clinical utility of CRP, reviews relevant case studies, and details how adding this complementary test will add value to your practice and improve patient outcomes.
• Understand the importance of identifying systemic inflammation to canine patient management.
• Discuss the role of C-reactive protein (CRP) in human and canine medicine.
• Understand the connection to the patient’s complete blood count (CBC) and other blood tests.
• Review case studies to illustrate intervention and monitoring the response to treatment.
