Critical Care Nutrition


When Kara Burns, LVT, VTS (Nutrition), VTS-H (Internal Medicine, Dentistry) visited Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine on October 23, 2014, her lecture made an impression on the veterinary medical students. Said one student:

I just wanted to let you know that your visit on October 23rd really left an impact with several of the attendees here at Tuskegee.

Soon after your visit, we had a more in-depth lecture on fluid and nutritional requirements in critical conditions as part of our Small Animal Medicine class. Several of the students mentioned to me following the lecture, that not only did they understand what you said much better, but that you were able to convey the information in a fraction of the amount of time the lecture took.

Just wanted to let you know how appreciative we are that you were able to speak with us.

Kara graciously agreed to privately record her talk as part of a Lafeber Company Veterinary Student Program pilot program, in which the presentations of select sponsored speakers are recorded. View the 48-minute presentation, which explores the basics of critical care nutrition appropriate for all species before concluding with information on nutritional support of special species.
