What am I Looking at?! Simplify your Life by Using the Cytologic Algorithm

The cytologic algorithm is the foundation to cytologic evaluation. In this session we will cover an organized approach for interpreting what is being seen under the microscope. The participant will learn how to identify and interpret inflammatory patterns, cystic lesions, and neoplastic processes. The important process of determining whether a neoplasm is benign or malignant on cytology will also be covered, as well as exceptions to these rules as they pertain to certain tumor types.

Everything You Need To Know About Paroxysmal Dyskinesia

Paroxysmal dyskinesias (PDs) are episodic movement disorders in which abnormal movements are present only during attacks. Although increasingly being recognised they are often poorly characterised in the veterinary literature and are commonly mistaken for an epileptic seizure, both by owners and by vets. In this program, participants will learn through video footages how to recognise paroxysmal dyskinesia and differentiate these episodes from epileptic seizures. The current state of knowledge in the understanding, diagnosis and management of PDs will be discussed with emphasis on breed-specific PDs.

It’s Cancer: Plan for success. The comprehensive cancer centre approach

This is for primary care veterinarians as a guide for diagnosis and treatment of pets with cancer using case examples. In this program, participants will learn about the Comprehensive Cancer Centre Approach. The effective use of trilogy of surgery, medical oncology and radiation used alone or in combination is the centrepiece of Comprehensive Cancer Centre Approach.

The Key to Confident Cardiac Diagnostics: Finding and Measuring the Left Atrium

Lecture description

Getting the Most From the Clinical Chemistry Panel

In this program, participants will learn about all aspects of the clinical chemistry panel, how to approach abnormalities and what organ systems may be affected. Some aspects will be a review but learning a consistent approach will ensure no abnormalities are overlooked. Organ systems reviewed will include renal, liver, GI and acid base. The session will be case based and more data points will be added as we progress through the session.

Musculoskeletal and soft tissue ultrasound made EASY!

Lecture description

Enucleation: Why does this “simple” surgery often seem more complicated than the textbooks make it out to be?

Many practitioners, particularly new veterinary graduates, often do not feel comfortable removing a blind, painful eye that warrants enucleation. Surgeons are made more uncomfortable when performing an enucleation in a ruptured globe. This lecture will provide an overview of a subconjunctival enucleation (and why Dr. Giuliano prefers this approach over the transpalpebral method in her small animal patients), Further, this lecture will provide some useful tips to making this common procedure a more comfortable experience for both patient and veterinarian alike. Questions and discussion will be encouraged!

Making Sense of Abnormal Calcium Test Results in Dogs and Cats


Management of Malocclusions in Puppies and Young Dogs

In this program, participants will gain further knowledge about the common malocclusions that we are currently seeing in puppies and young dogs. The occurrence of dental malocclusions in puppies and immature dogs seem to be on the rise, especially within the smaller breeds. Some of the reasons for this increase is due to the rise of the “pandemic puppy” breeding phenomenon, as well as a greater awareness and identification of abnormal bites amongst veterinarians and dog owners alike, when these puppies first present to their primary care veterinarian. This discussion will, firstly look at normal patterns of tooth eruption in dogs, secondly, describe what is considered to be a normal occlusion, according to breed standards, and finally, offer insights into the early detection of dental malocclusions, including treatment options available, including the best time to intervene, especially if the malocclusion is causing discomfort or pain (or may lead to future pain).

Acute Pancreatitis in the Cat: Clarifying the Conundrum!

Pancreatitis in the cat can be both a diagnostic, as well as a therapeutic challenge. Over the course of this lecture, we’ll examine the pathology of pancreatitis in the cat, evaluate diagnostic work-up and evaluation, and also look at treatment of the cat with acute – as well as chronic pancreatitis.

Cats with Thoracic Cancer? How radiology can help your diagnosis!

In this program, participants will develop and improve upon existing skills in the diagnosis of thoracic neoplasia in cats. Participants will be provided with many case examples of neoplasia of the lung, mediastinum and thoracic wall and skeletal structures. Radiography will be the emphasis of the imaging diagnosis and interpretation and some CT comparisons will also be provided. Examples of variations of diffuse pulmonary pathology can appear similar to neoplasia in cats will also be demonstrated. Case examples will be used to demonstrate interpretive principles of the lung, mediastinum and heart and how to develop next steps based on the radiographic findings.

Feline Arthritis: Under-recognised and Under-treated?


Step-by-Step Guide to Wide Surgical Excision

Canine cutaneous mast cell tumours and soft tissue sarcomas are a common presentation in veterinary primary care practice. Prognosis and recurrence rate in these tumour populations is influenced by tumour grade and completeness of surgical excision, with wide surgical excision generally resulting in more favourable outcomes. This lecture will discuss which tumour types and locations are amenable to wide surgical excision, and what alternatives exist when wide excision is not feasible. Using plenty of intra-operative photos and videos, we will discuss in detail how to plan and execute a wide surgical excision with the goal of obtaining complete surgical margins, as well as tips for specimen handling and communication with the pathologist. Finally, methods to prevent some common post operative complications arising from wide excision of cutaneous masses will be discussed.

Acute Haemolytic Anaemia in the Cat

The cat with acute haemolytic anaemia requires detailed diagnostic evaluation, as well as careful patient management in order to achieve optimum outcome. Join Dr. Philip Judge, as he presents a sound, evidence-based approach to the cat with haemolytic anaemia!

A Case-Based Approach to Managing The Complex Chronic Pain Patient

Fewer cases can be more challenging to manage than a chronic pain patient suffering from multiple complex co-morbidities. This webinar will provide strategies to assist you to determine which patient outcomes should be priorities amid a ‘storm’ of contraindications, failing client compliance and diminishing quality of life. Drs Leon Warne and Emma Johnson will co-present this session, which will focus on provide practical real-world solutions to these challenging yet rewarding cases.
