Vetective Story - an Infectious Disease Conference

Vetective Story - an Infectious Disease Conference

In a constantly changing canvas, we see infectious disease emerge, re-emerge, spread and recede. For our own patients, we need to know that we are providing the most contemporary treatments, whilst protecting others in our care – and in some cases, ourselves.

This 4-day conference brings together local experts from across Australia to present the updates that are important to YOU, and YOUR patients. New and novel infectious diseases of cats and dogs, leptospirosis, mycobacterial disease and the southward spread of rat lungworm are all covered.

Increasingly, the way we as veterinarians approach and treat infectious disease has wider implications so antimicrobial stewardship, MRSP and MRSA are essential presentations for all clinicians. Up to date recommendations for treatment of urinary tract infections, FIP and sepsis will be discussed, as will the appropriate use of out-of-patent medications.

Prevention and protection will also be a focus. Ensure you are taking care of your staff with a discussion of common zoonotic disease in companion animal practice. Infection control in private and shelter practice and the latest controversies and recommendations on vaccination round out the program.

Quite simply, this is a conference you can’t afford to miss.
