Epilepsy in Dogs & Cats

30 March - 26 April

Steven De Decker

DVM PhD MvetMed DipECVN MRCVS


Increase your confidence by learning how basic theoretical concepts can be used to make individualised clinical decisions for the epileptic patient.

The violent and unpredictable nature of seizures can cause severe emotional distress to owners of affected pets. It is therefore important that clients with epileptic animals are supported by their veterinary surgeon. A relationship based on mutual respect and a sound understanding of the basic principles of epilepsy are the key components of successful management. In this course we will focus on clinical decision making, common pronlems, and recent developments in canine and feline epilepsy.


 

Modules

  1. Seizures: what, when and how to treat
  2. Epilepsy in cats
  3. Status epilepticus and cluster seizures
  4. Common problems in epilepsy – what if they don’t respond to treatment

Feline Emergencies

14 September - 11 October

Trudi Mcalees
BSc BVSc MACVSc FANZCVS


An introduction to emergency medicine with particular emphasis on treating cats, including triage, shock and fluid therapy and treatment of common toxicities.

Much of what we do in veterinary emergency medicine is extrapolated from human medicine and while we learn more about the unique pathophysiology of disease and responses to treatment in cats, evidence for emergency treatment in cats is scarce. 

This course will present the latest evidence based approach to feline emergency, combined with tutors personal experience treating cats in the emergency setting, and will get you up to speed in the key areas needed to provide effective emergency care to cats. The course covers triage, shock and fluid therapy, as well as treatment of common toxicities. The unique aspects of caring for cats in the emergency and critical care settings will also be addressed.


Modules

  1. Emergency Triage of the Cat, Emergency Database Blood Tests
  2. Shock and Fluid Therapy in Cats including Transfusion Medicine
  3. Feline Critical Care
  4. Feline Toxicities
