Pick Up Log
Very well done. Informative and engaging. I highly recommend this course and any other courses that are produced by this group!
I could have taken another opioid course that fulfilled the requirement for free through CVMA but it was worth it to me to pay $25 to distill everything I needed into an hour, so thanks!
This course was great — it helped me tremendously. The drip.vet support staff went above and beyond. I highly recommend it.
I took the Opioid 411 course to satisfy my NC license requirements and the course was informative and easy to follow. It contained information on not just opioids but other options for pain management. Thanks y’all!
