Hot Clinical Updates in Small Animal Practice Conference

Hot Clinical Updates in Small Animal Practice Conference

There is nothing as vibrant as attending a veterinary meeting in real time and with a real audience. 2020 was a wipeout for face-to-face conferences and instead we zoomed into a range of online offerings. 

To celebrate the CVE’s return to in-person events, we have chosen some of Melbourne’s most outstanding veterinary communicators in companion animal practice to bring you snappy clinical updates in their respective areas of expertise. The chosen venue is the State Library of Victoria – a place of enormous character and central location. Catch up with colleagues over lunch and rediscover all that you love about CVE conferences.

Places are limited! Book early to secure your seat at this energetic, cross-disciplinary event.

Lectures

What’s new and practical in feline medicine -  Carolyn O'Brien
Carolyn is in a busy feline practice where she sees a healthy mix of primary cases and referrals. Carolyn will summarise some recent advances in feline medicine, where new drugs or refined treatment regimens have had a big impact on clinical outcomes. For example, she will discuss the new drugs that let us cure as many of 80% of cats with FIP. Carolyn has a wealth of experience is academic and private practice; her advice will be practical and suited to case management in general practice.

Top ten eye problems seen in practice - Robin Stanley/Jane Whitley
 Robin and Jane have long experience in vet ophthalmology practice and in continuing veterinary education and still have their feet firmly planted on the ground. In this talk they will review the common canine and feline ocular diseases, and highlight the best way to manage them - including recent advances in medical and surgical therapy. This discipline is very visual – and the talks will be based on fantastic still images and videos.

Clinical updates in emergency medicine - Yenny Indrawirawan
Emergency medicine is one of the most dynamic disciplines in companion animal practice. Yenny is full of energy and enthusiasm, and she will focus on recent developments which have resulted in fresh approaches to common emergency problems seen in cats and dogs in suburban and rural practice.

New insulin treatments for cats and dogs - Linda Fleeman

Linda is Australia’s guru of endocrinology. Her area of greatest expertise is management of diabetes mellitus in cats and dogs, but she is also a deft hand at managing hyperadrenocorticism, pancreatitis, obesity and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. In this talk, Linda will focus on new insulin formulations and how we can use them most effectively to optimise management of diabetes in cats and dogs.

Making the most out of chest radiographs and other thoracic imaging modalities - Cathy Beck
Cathy is a dynamic small animal imaging specialist with a strong background in education. Cathy will be concentrating on imaging of the chest, with special focus on imaging of the pulmonary parenchyma. She will look at the merits of plain radiology, computed tomography and ultrasound, and help you to developing a strategy for description and interpretation of thoracic radiographs complemented by other imaging modalities.

Interactive session: Imaging the canine and feline thorax: a straightforward approach to interpretation - Cathy Beck
The focus of this hour is interaction and practical application of knowledge. Centred on case studies, audience participation is encouraged and will be a pivotal aspect of your learning experience – the aim is to help you reach that “a-ha” moment that will inform and improve your approach to in-clinic thoracic image interpretation.

When and how should I modify the GI microbiome - Caroline Mansfield
There is an increasing amount of information (often conflicting) about the role of the GI microbiome in health and disease in both people and pets. There are also an increasing number of products on the market - both probiotics and prebiotics- that can modify the microbiome, along with more “invasive” methods such as faecal microbial transplantation. This talk will try to unravel the current knowledge surrounding what clinical scenarios may benefit from microbiome manipulation and how to decide which method (or combination of methods) may be useful in clinical practice.
