    Dr. Edouard Marchal
    Management of Seizures in Cats
    Despite controversies in the classification of feline epilepsy, approaches to diagnosis and management continue to evolve. Recent reviews on the safety and effectiveness of antiepileptic drugs assist practitioners in feeling more comfortable with their use. Furthermore, a better understanding of prognosis is key to developing reasonable expectations for feline owners.

    Dr. Debbie Reynolds
    Bandaging and Wound Management
    This seminar on bandaging and wound management will provide both veterinarians and technicians some guidelines on how to manage wounds from surgical incision dehiscence, dog bite wounds to motor vehicle trauma. We will cover different types of bandages, primary wound dressings and how to prevent bandage complications. Guidelines on when to attempt wound closure and some basic wound closure techniques will also be covered.

    Dr. Judy Brown
    Cough? Fever? Shortness of breath?
    We’re discussing Canine Pneumonia, of course. Using illustrative cases, Dr. Brown will review typical historical and physical exam findings, diagnostic tests and standard and emerging therapeutic options for this potentially life-threatening condition.

    Looking at Urinalysis Through a New Lens

    This lecture will cover the value and correct interpretation of the urinalysis. Topics will include method of collection, clinical relevance and treatment of decreased urine specific gravity, proteinuria, microscopic hematuria, crystalluria and bacteriuria. An update on diagnosing and treating bacterial urinary tract infections will be provided. Subclinical bacteriuria will be discussed.

    This interactive lecture will focus on key components of a minimum patient data base including history, physical examination and results of CBC, biochemical profile and complete urinalysis. The focus will be on getting the most information out of the minimum data base using case examples. Newer parameters such as reticulocyte hemoglobin concentration as an early marker of decreased iron availability will be covered.

    The lecture will cover the importance of screening for infectious disease from a One Health perspective. A brief review of clinically relevant statistics will be provided. Characteristics of screening tests, confirmatory tests, and monitoring response to treatment will be discussed. Feline retroviral disease, vector-borne disease, and leptospirosis will be used to highlight the appropriate use of serology and molecular diagnostics both pet-side and at the reference laboratory.

    Updates on Radiographic Interpretation, Extraction Techniques and Flap Design

    Now that dental x-rays are becoming mandatory in most provinces, when performing dentistry, acquiring a good knowledge of the micro anatomy of the oral cavity is becoming essential. This presentation will review variations of normal related to age, positioning, crowding and more. It will examine the signs of periodontal disease, the most common pathology encountered in the oral cavity. Then we will look at characteristic signs of caries, tooth resorption, dental fractures, jaw fractures, systemic diseases, and neoplasms.

    There are variations in the way dentists extract teeth, even though the main principles remain the same. This presentation will demonstrate how to use luxators to remove teeth with minimal bone removal. It has the advantage to be quick and to preserve the anatomy surrounding the teeth.

    Reviewing the literature, one finds that there are multiple designs of flaps used while extracting teeth. The ideal flap is well defined as being one that improves visualization, facilitates closure, has no tension, and is set in such a way that the sutures are on top of bone not on top of a hole. With these directives in mind we shall review the flaps necessary for the proper extraction of each tooth.

    Individualizing the Nutrition Support Plan for Your Patients

    By paying attention to the nutritional needs of our patients, we can maximize their health, performance, and longevity. Nutrition is a cornerstone in treating many medical conditions. This session will provide you with the tools to tailor nutrition support plans to individual patient needs. Case-based examples will be used with a specific focus on gastrointestinal disease and diabetes mellitus.

    Behaviour in Pets What’s New and Tips & Tricks

    Do you want to use medications to relieve anxiety and stress in your patients before they get to your office, but you do not know which medications to prescribe? Are you unclear how to combine medications or how to approach the anxious patient medically? Attendees to this session will learn practical, real-life solutions to help them help their patients by making good medication choices.

    The past decade has been one of discovery regarding the effects of altering our pet dogs and cats. Still today, there is controversy and push/pull between the health considerations, behavioral considerations, and population control. Learn about the current and past research regarding alteration as it applies to behavioral outcomes. Walk away with the knowledge to make good decisions for your patients.

    You care about your patients and are worried about their stress level when hospitalized but medicating a critically ill patient isn’t always safe. In this session, attendees will learn about medications, supplements and tools which can be used to reduce fear, anxiety and stress in patients who need to be boarded or hospitalized.

    In part due to the excellent veterinary care that we deliver to our patients, we are presented with more geriatric cats and dogs now than we were 10 years ago. Most of us did not learn much about how to recognize and treat cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CDS) in dogs and cats. In this session, attendees will learn the most up to date prevention strategies and treatments of CDS in dogs and cats.
