Immunology & Updates in Immune-Mediated Disease Conference
Immune-mediated diseases are among the most common and challenging in veterinary practice – Early Bird rates available until July 24
This course is designed to provide the veterinary practitioner with the most current methods of recognition, diagnosis and treatment of immune-mediated diseases in the dog and cat. Using case based examples the presenters will work through a large number of interactive cases, providing theoretical and practical insights into managing difficult cases. The course will cover all aspects of immune-mediated disease, including dermatologic, haematologic and oncologic examples. The use of immunosuppressive drugs and the selection of appropriate protocols will be covered in detail. The presenters, Drs Mackin, Holloway and Shipstone have large amounts of experience in managing immune-mediated disease in dogs and cats and will provide novel insights into the management of these problematic cases.
Steve Holloway is an internist who trained in both Australia and the USA. He has deep and penetrating insights into infectious diseases, cell biology and immunology – all of which underpin canine and feline immune-mediated diseases. Andrew Mackin is an ex-pat Aussie who trained at Murdoch, the University of Melbourne, Guelph and has had senior faculty positions in Edinburgh and now Mississippi. His current focus is on measuring cytokine levels to optimise safe and effective control of immune-mediated disease. Mike Shipstone is a Brisbane based veterinary dermatologist who started out in general practice before focusing on skin disease. These speakers have very different personalities, but are all on the top of their game.
Plan now to take advantage of the fantastic South Island Spring skiing as well as the opportunity to enjoy everything else Queenstown has to offer.
