CE EVENING SESSIONS
COMPANION ANIMAL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 _______________________________________ THE PRURITIC PATIENT - WHEN IT'S NOT JUST ANOTHER ALLERGY Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 5:00 PM - 5:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 The majority of dermatology cases presenting to veterinarians for workup and management of pruritus are exactly what they seem—patients with infections, parasites and/or allergies. However, sometimes these cases are a bit more involved than they first appear. The purpose of this lecture is to review a few easily missed "atypical" causes of pruritus. I BIOPSIED (OR WANT TO BIOPSY) MY PATIENT'S SKIN--NOW WHAT? HOW TO MAKE YOUR HISTOLOGY WORK FOR YOU! Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 6:00 PM - 6:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 Skin biopsies can provide the skilled clinician with a detailed image of the pathologic processes occurring in diseased skin. Unfortunately, all too often the clinician receives a histologic description and interpretation that may not be clinically helpful. While bad biopsies can certainly happen to good clinicians, there are a few techniques that you can use before, during and after the biopsy to maximize the likelihood of obtaining a diagnostic sample. MANAGEMENT OF ACRAL LICK DERMATITIS--IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE? Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 7:00 PM - 7:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 Acral lick dermatitis (ALD) can be a very frustrating challenge for the small animal practitioner. It’s easy for clients and veterinarians alike to lose patience with the often slow process of workup and therapy. The purpose of this lecture is to present some tips that I have found useful in the management of acral lick dermatitis. SOLAR DERMATITIS--IT'S NOT JUST FOR WHITE CATS! Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 8:00 PM - 8:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 Solar dermatitis is a broad term generally referring to acute or chronic dermatitis resulting from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. While most practitioners are very familiar with classic presentations, such as the white cat with facial and pinnal erythema and crusting, not all cases read the book. The purpose of this lecture is to discuss some typical and not-so-typical presentations of solar dermatitis as well as potential diagnostic and treatment options. USE OF ANTIBIOTICS IN DOGS AND CATS WITH DIARRHEA – SENSIBLE CHOICE OR NONSENSE? Frederic Gaschen, DVM 5:00 PM - 5:50 PM | Room 214 D Antibiotics such as metronidazole and others are commonly used in the treatment of dogs and cats with acute or chronic diarrhea. What is the current evidence about their actual effects in these situations? Would these patients do just as well if they did not receive antibiotics at all? This lecture will discuss the evidence currently available on this topic and highlight why we urgently need to reconsider the systematic recourse to antibiotics in most of these cases. DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF DOGS WITH CHRONIC DIARRHEA IN DAILY PRACTICE - VERSION 2023 Frederic Gaschen, DVM 6:00 PM - 6:50 PM | Room 214 D Dogs with chronic diarrhea can be challenging to diagnose: intestinal parasites, diet-responsive diseases, intestinal dysbiosis, inflammatory bowel
SMALL ANIMAL PEDIATRICS - PART 1 Michael Peterson, DVM, MS 5:00 PM - 5:50 PM | Room 214 A
disease and intestinal lymphoma are the wide range of diseases to consider. Overall, the recommended diagnostic approach is less aggressive than it used to be, but what should be done? In addition, there is only a limited amount of options in our treatment toolkit. This lecture will provide practical updates based on recent findings and experiences. TIPS FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF PROTEIN- LOSING ENTEROPATHY IN THE DOG - GI AND BEYOND Frederic Gaschen, DVM 7:00 PM - 7:50 PM | Room 214 D Protein-losing enteropathy (PLE) is a complex disease with a high potential for unfavorable outcomes in dogs. Diagnostic efforts need to focus on understanding the underlying disease responsible for the protein loss but also on detecting the systemic effects of PLE in each particular patient. Management needs to include a dietary component as well as the judicious use of various drugs such as steroids. This lecture will provide an overview of current recommendations for the diagnosis and management of PLE. FECAL MICROBIOTA TRANSPLANTATION – HOW TO GET STARTED AND CURRENT Frederic Gaschen, DVM 8:00 PM - 8:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a novel modality that can be useful in the management of dogs and cats with various diseases causing acute or chronic diarrhea. This lecture will review the current indications for FMT. For the veterinarians interested in providing FMT to their patients, the selection of canine and feline fecal donors will also be discussed SEDATION IN THE SMALL ANIMAL PATIENT Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 5:00 PM - 5:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Procedural sedation and analgesia is frequently utilized in small animal veterinary. There may be the assumption that sedation is safer than general anesthesia, less eventful and bares a low risk of complication. This may not hold true for all patients. Over the years more drug protocols have been investigated in regards to their ability to provide reliable sedation. Depending on requirements, drug protocols for sedation can be adjusted to the special needs of the patient. ANESTHETIC EMERGENCIES - CONTROLLED DISASTER - PART 1 Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 6:00 PM - 6:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 as well as the different techniques for the preparation and administration of FMT. Providing general anesthesia is associated with risks, originating from the animal being anesthetized, the procedure or from human errors. Severe cardiovascular depression due to underlying disease can lead to cardiopulmonary arrest. Early recognition is important to be able to respond immediately with adequate treatment. ANESTHETIC EMERGENCIES - CONTROLLED DISASTER - PART 2 Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 7:00 PM - 7:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Human error can be cause of sudden arising emergencies which bare a risk towards the patient. Using checklists prior to inducing general anesthesia and following established standards can help prevent human error, therefore increasing safety. With checking equipment prior to use, malfunction can be discovered ahead of time.
What they didn't tell you in Vet school. Discussion of the significant physiologic and anatomic differences in puppies and kittens relative to adults. Why they over respond or fail to respond to medications and treatments that would normally be effective in adults. These differences account for a large portion of neonatal and pediatric mortality. SMALL ANIMAL PEDIATRICS - PART 2 Michael Peterson, DVM, MS 6:00 PM - 6:50 PM | Room 214 A Continuation of pediatrics lecture 1: a discussion of the significant physiologic and anatomic differences in puppies and kittens relative to adults. Why they over respond or fail to respond to medications and treatments that would normally be effective in adults. These differences account for a large portion of neonatal and pediatric mortality PRENATAL CARE IN THE BITCH AND QUEEN Michael Peterson, DVM, MS 7:00 PM - 7:50 PM | Room 214 A A review of the under discussed topic of adequate prenatal care of pregnant small animals. Included in this discussion will be topics such as nutrition, immunologic status, supplements, weight management, among others. NEONATAL MORTALITY IN PUPPIES AND KITTENS Michael Peterson, DVM, MS 8:00 PM - 8:50 PM | Room 214 A A discussion of the primary causes of neonatal mortality in small animals. This is a very frustrating clinical situation as neonatal and pediatric mortality can be high. This review will include the topics of husbandry, nutrition, infectious, genetic among other issues.
