Emergency Care of Rabbits & Rodents TimeOnline OnDemand

Start Now

Speaker/s: Olivia Clarke

Online

TimeOnline OnDemand

Description

Rabbits and rodents are becoming increasingly common pets in today’s society. These patients have a profound, innate ability to mask signs of disease. The consequence of this is that they frequently present in a critical condition and require emergency care. This ability to hide clinical illness, combined with their small size and susceptibility to significant stress, can make them challenging creatures to treat.   This course aims to introduce the veterinary clinician to the principles of assessment, triage and stabilisation of rabbit and rodent emergencies. The first module outlines physical exam and diagnostic testing in critical patients. The second module discusses clinical consequences encountered in critical patients and their appropriate management.   The ultimate goal of this course is to improve the knowledge and confidence of veterinarians when faced with rabbit and rodent emergencies and empower them to provide a higher level of care to these species.

Common Conditions in Ferrets TimeOnline OnDemand

Start Now

Speaker/s: Olivia Clarke

Online

TimeOnline OnDemand

Description

Historically, domesticated ferrets were predominantly kept for hunting rabbits and rodents. Ferret ownership has changed considerably since their early days of domestication. Now, many households keep ferrets as much-loved pets and are considered cherished members of the family. With ferret ownership continuing to grow, this rising popularity and perceived value has naturally driven an increase in clients seeking high standards of veterinary care for these animals. As such, it is important for veterinarians to understand how to examine and provide care for ferrets and to be familiar with the common conditions encountered in ferrets, including diagnosis and management of such conditions.

Getting Started with Neurology TimeOnline OnDemand

Start Now

Speaker/s: Steven de Decker

Online

TimeOnline OnDemand

Description

Neurology is often considered a challenging specialty. It is therefore often assumed that neurology cases can only be managed in specialty referral hospitals. In contrast to popular belief, many small animal neurology patients can however be successfully managed in a first opinion setting. Recognizing the neurological nature and characterizing the clinical problem are the most important aspects of clinical neurology. During this course we hope to break down some of the barriers associated with neurology. We will discuss the absolute minimum of neuro-anatomy you should know, how to perform a neuro-exam in practice, and how to recognize the most likely differential diagnoses without expensive and advanced diagnostics. The concept of problem-based clinical reasoning will be central in answering the most important clinical questions. This course is aimed at primary care veterinary clinicians that don’t feel comfortable assessing neurology patients in practice.

VPOCUS Workshop

Saturday, 17 August 2024

Speaker/s: Soren Boysen, Pamela Manning, Mark Howarth, Joanna Aitken

The University of Sydney

Workshops and Conferences

Description

“When something is visualised, the truth of its occurrence or existence can no longer be doubted - Seeing is Believing”! This proverb has particular meaning when it comes point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS); diagnostic confidence increases in 89.2% of patients when general practitioners add bedside POCUS to patient evaluation! Recent surveys suggest 50-80% of veterinary clinics have an ultrasound machine. Unfortunately, despite POCUS revolutionising all facets of veterinary medicine, many ultrasound machines are underutilised in general small animal practice. This should not be the case! By asking clinically relevant, often binary yes/no questions, veterinary POCUS can be rapidly and efficiently learned and applied by anyone in almost any setting! So, dust off that ultrasound machine, go beyond looking for the urinary bladder to get a urine sample, and start using ultrasound to make a difference in in the daily assessment and management of your patients! Through practical, hands-on training using live dogs, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice all of the common veterinary POCUS techniques currently used to assess the abdomen, pleural space, lung, and heart. Phantoms training models will also be used to demonstrate and practice ultrasound guided vascular access. This lab will focus on techniques developed by the instructors, designed to increase veterinary POCUS diagnostic accuracy, and help facilitate easier application into everyday veterinary practice. These are all techniques that can be performed by any practitioner and should be used in everyday practice! We will also briefly review basic ultrasound machine function and probe manipulations. One of two prerequisites must be met to enrol in this lab. Participants must complete VPOCUS: Practical Applications for GPs Distance Education or online lectures through Calgary.

A Good Death: Improving End-of-Life Care WebinarPLUS

Thursday, 29 August 2024

Speaker/s: Laura McGuffog

Online

WebinarPLUS

Description

The human-animal bond has undergone significant evolution over the past few decades, a reality that veterinary professionals are particularly attuned to. Owners rely on us to provide the highest level of care throughout their pet’s life and facilitate exceptional end-of-life care when the time comes. Euthanasia, an invaluable tool within our profession, grants us the privilege of alleviating suffering. Despite the undeniable importance of this practice, our natural aversion to grief and death can impede our ability to provide the compassionate care that our owners and patients need. The aim of this talk is to provide you with a greater understanding of what owners need from us when they navigate their pet’s farewell. This talk will discuss the technical aspects of the euthanasia appointment, urging reconsideration of common approaches and protocols in practice. The use of pre-medication or sedation prior to euthanasia has significant benefits that go far beyond the avoidance of manual handling and stress. We will also explore the communication skills required to convey both empathy and reassurance during the appointment. By leaning into end-of-life care, and appreciating its significance to the families we serve, we can help provide an experience that celebrates the wonderful lives that our patients have lived.
