Please join Fabulous Felines and Dr. Christa Bernhard for the first talk in our 2017 Free Lecture Series. Dr. Bernhard’s talk is entitled From Wheezes to Puffs…Understanding Feline Asthma. She will discuss the clinical signs of feline asthma, and how it is diagnosed. She will also cover the treatment of an acute asthmatic crisis, as well as chronic management for the disease. As always, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, this talk is Free to the public.
Dr. Bernhard completed a small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, FL. In 2016, she finished a three-year residency in emergency and critical care at the University of Missouri, where she also earned her Master’s degree in biomedical sciences.
Dr. Bernhard enjoys all aspects of critical care medicine and is dedicated to training veterinary staff and interns. She has a particular interest in respiratory disease, mechanical ventilation and management of shock. Her research experience includes the use of ventilator-acquired pulmonary mechanics and computed tomography in the assessment of respiratory disease.
In her free time, Dr. Bernhard enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and running with her two dogs, Ajax and Joseph. She is also an avid fan of Xavier basketball.
