Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital is hosting a free, three-credit course in canine orthopedics titled Canine Orthopedics in a Nutshell.

The course offers two sessions, one Aug. 11 and one Sept. 15, and is open to all veterinarians. Participants must attend both sessions to receive continuing education credit.


The first session will cover diagnostic issues and hind-limb lameness. Specifically, the session will address soft tissue injuries, stifle disease, dysplasia and ligament injuries.

The second session will cover forelimb lameness. The focus will target shoulder diseases, elbow diseases and carpal hyperextension.

Classes will be held at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, located at 300 W. Drake Rd. Dinner will be provided at 6:30 p.m., followed by a class session lasting until 8:30 p.m.

To register for the free course, contact Cathy Mojahed at or at 970-297-1273.
