C-reactive protein (CRP) is a type of acute-phase protein that rises when there is inflammation in the body. It can be used as a surrogate marker for neoplasia, infection, immune-mediated and inflammatory disease. While it should be part of the armamentarium in diagnosis and monitoring of diseases because it is a non-specific marker it should not be independently relied on. This webinar will explore what CRP is, where it comes from, and how it can be utilised in clinical practice; including discussing limitations.

Dyspneic patients can be scary to care for, regardless of your experience. The aim of this session is to help build confidence in how to care for these respiratory compromised patients from triage, stabilisation and performing diagnostics to finding the reason for their current condition. We will walk through what to do when they come through the door, how to triage and initially stabilise them to allow for diagnostic imaging and further investigation into their disease process as well as implementing nurse care plans that ensures that the patient received the best possible care you can give and give you confidence in handling and treating respiratory compromised patients.

Poor husbandry and diet are often cited as the most common cause of illness in exotic pets. With a range of species kept as “exotics”, most of which are not truly domesticated, their complex environmental and social needs can often be lacking in their domestic environment. What is appropriate husbandry, what is inappropriate and where is the evidence? The aim of this talk is to introduce general aspects of exotics husbandry and how they relate to health and disease.

Critical, high intensity patients can appear quite daunting to look after. They need constant monitoring; you need to think in your feet and be able to adapt and change treatment plans at short notice. The aim of this session is to delve into some of the disease processes that occur in these patients, look at treatment plans and goals including what medication arsenal is at the care team’s disposal. We will also talk about nursing care, what we can do to make the patient more comfortable and the importance of monitoring of trends in patient parameters. By the end of this session, you should feel more confident to nurse these unstable patients while in hospital.

The aging process is natural in all animals and we do perceive a lot of the physical changes our pets go through. They gradually “slow down”, spend more time in bed, seem to have “stiff joints” when getting up from a laying position and can present many other “geriatric” symptoms - not only musculoskeletal, but linked to other systems too.
