Abbott Animal Health recently launched a free online learning center for veterinarians and veterinary technicians to provide continuing education on fluid therapy, anesthesia, and diabetes.

So far, www.AbbottAnimalHealthCE.com features several multimedia presentations on fluid therapy by experts in the area. Each half-hour presentation comes with an outline, searchable transcript, speaker biography, glossary of terms, links to additional resources, and form for submitting questions. Veterinarians and veterinary technicians can earn one hour of CE credit by passing a test at the end of each module.

Abbott plans to add new modules to the Web site at the beginning of each month. The first series of modules, on fluid therapy, will include a total of 10 presentations. Abbott plans to post the first anesthesia module in November and the first diabetes module in January 2010.

Veterinarians and veterinary technicians can obtain a pass code to register with the Web site by calling their Abbott sales representative, an Abbott distributor, or Abbott Animal Health customer service at (888) 299-7416.
