Meeting Date (All Meetings start at 7:30 PM): 
Dr. Avi Shaprut

MANAGEMENT OF CANINE COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME – An overview of cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS) discussing prevalence, risk factors and clinical signs.

Dr. Avi Shaprut originates from Long Island, New York. After graduating Michigan State University Veterinary School in 1998, Dr. Shaprut practiced in New York for 2 years. He then set out for the West Coast, and in 2000 he called San Diego home.

For 16 years Dr. Shaprut enjoyed the challenges of full-time small animal practice. His special interests are nutrition, abdominal ultrasound, cardiology, and internal medicine. When the practice he worked in for 10 years was sold Dr. Shaprut decided it was the perfect time to tackle some new challenges. A long-time proponent of good nutrition, he decided to work for Nestlé Purina PetCare where he now enjoys his position as Veterinary Communications Manager, supporting veterinary teaching hospitals and providing technical support for Purina’s sales consultants. On weekends, he continues to practice as a relief veterinarian in San Diego. He lectures at UC Davis, Washington and Oregon State Universities, Western University, specialty hospitals, and multiple regional Vet Med Association meetings.
