CE DAYTIME SESSIONS
cutaneous fungal and pseudo-fungal infections. The purpose of this lecture is to provide an update on the oomycotic infections: Pythium, Lagenidium and Paralagenidium.
another for resuscitation. This is often why there is debate as to what fluids a practice should purchase to have on the shelf. Moreover, the type of fluid desired may vary based on the underlying disease process. In this lecture we will take a case based approach to fluid therapy practices. THE FELINE DENTAL PATIENT - ANESTHETIC AND ANALGESIC CONSIDERATIONS Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 8:00 AM - 8:50 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Especially older feline patient may require general anesthesia for a "Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment Teeth". Feline patient have a higher risk of death associated with general anesthesia compared to dogs. To improve the outcome of general anesthesia for the feline patient drug protocols as well as case management should be adjusted for each individual patient. WHY REDUCING FRESH GAS FLOW? Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 9:00 AM - 9:50 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 The possibility and the need to reduce the fresh gas flow is influenced by the breathing system used, as well as economical and physiologic aspects. The choice of breathing system is determined by the size of the animal, the tolerated resistance to breathing and personal preference. When using a circle system lower fresh gas flow rates can be used which allows for saving money by wasting less oxygen and less inhalant. ALFAXALONE FOR THE SMALL ANIMAL PATIENT Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Alfaxalone is available in the USA since 2014, used as an induction agent in small animal practice. Besides the intravenous route of administration. One advantage of alfaxalone is that its administration is not strictly intravenous, but also intramuscular providing sedation. A BALANCED ANESTHESIA - ONE DOES NOT FIT ALL Jeannette Cremer, DVM, Dr.med.vet, DACVAA, CVA 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 The choice on a drug protocol to provide a balanced anesthesia is influenced by the procedure and the patient. Different possible drug protocols are presented on a case base.

ANTIVENOMS Michael Peterson, DVM, MS 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM | Room 214 A What's up with all these antivenoms? A discussion on how antivenoms are manufactured from selection of host animals, immunizing snakes and the final configuration of the antibody product. A comparison of the multiple antivenom products available in the United States for treatment of North American pit viper envenomations. The pros and cons of each product, evidence of efficacy and safety.

A lecture on venom components, pathophysiology, first aid and treatment of venomous arthropods of North America. This discussion will include bee, wasp, Black Widow and Brown Recluse spiders, ants, centipedes and scorpions. DIABETES MELLITUS IN DOGS AND CATS: PART 1 David Bruyette, DVM, DACVIM, SAIM 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Room 214 A We will review the pathogenesis and diagnostic approach to the patient with diabetes. DIABETES MELLITUS IN DOGS AND CATS - PART 2 David Bruyette, DVM, DACVIM, SAIM 3:00 PM - 3:50 PM | Room 214 A We will review treatment options for both dogs and cats including monitoring recommendations. FELINE HYPERTHYROIDISM David Bruyette, DVM, DACVIM, SAIM 4:30 PM - 5:20 PM | Room 214 A We will review updates on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of feline hyperthyroidism. GASTROPROTECTANTS IN DOGS AND CATS – WHEN ARE THEY USEFUL? Frederic Gaschen, DVM 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Room 214 D Gastroprotectants are commonly administered to dogs and cats without clear evidence that they are useful in that particular indication. The main objective of this presentation is to offer a critical review of the current evidence on this topic and to provide evidence-based recommendations on the optimal use of proton pump inhibitors, histamine- 2023 UPDATES ON DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF PANCREATITIS IN DOGS Frederic Gaschen, DVM 3:00 PM - 3:50 PM | Room 214 D Most veterinarians have had good and bad experiences with pancreatitis in dogs. Mild cases tend to respond well to symptomatic treatment while severe cases can develop an array of complications that can lead to lethal outcomes. This presentation will review the latest updates on this disease in dogs including the newly available drug fuzapladib. type2 receptor antagonists and other gastroprotectants in dogs and cats. IBD VS. INTESTINAL LYMPHOMA IN CATS – PRACTICAL IMPACT OF RECENT UPDATES Frederic Gaschen, DVM 4:30 PM - 5:20 PM | Room 214 D Differentiating IBD from slow-progressing forms of lymphoma in cats with hyporexia and weight loss with or without GI signs remains challenging. A consensus statement was recently published by experts in the field to guide veterinarians in our diagnostic and therapeutic approach to these cases. This lecture will bring veterinarians in attendance up to date on this difficult conundrum. A warning: not all frustrations will be alleviated. SURGICAL MANAGEMENT OF GDV; THE 15-MINUTE GASTROPEXY Howard Seim, DVM, DACVS 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Room 207 AB This seminar will focus primarily on the surgical management of GDV patients.

ISOXAZOLINES: WHY YOU SHOULDN'T FORGET THE OTHER DRUGS JUST YET... Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 The introduction of the isoxazoline class of drugs has been one of the most revolutionary events in veterinary parasitology since the introduction of ivermectin. As a class, these drugs have an extremely wide spectrum of effect—from fleas, to ticks, to mites and possibly beyond. Furthermore, they are extremely convenient. Depending upon the drug and the intended target, a single dose may last between four to twelve weeks. However, it is important to remember that these drugs have their limitations and disadvantages, just like other drugs. The purpose of this lecture is to clarify what the isoxazolines can and cannot do and when other drugs might be more appropriate choices. WHEN IT'S NOT JUST AN ABSCESS Cherie Pucheu, DVM, PhD, DACVD 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 Veterinary patients frequently present with single or multiple areas of cutaneous or subcutaneous swelling, frequently associated with discharge, pain and/or fever. Since many of our patients spend time roaming without supervision, it is logical to assume that these areas represent bacterial abscesses-- perhaps secondary to bite wounds or minor trauma-- and to treat accordingly. However, sometimes those lesions are not what they seem. The purpose of this lecture is to discuss a few disorders that may be easily mistaken for routine bacterial abscesses. EMERGENCY ROOM APPROACH TO ANEMIA - PART I Garret Pachtinger, VMD, DACVECC 8:00 AM - 8:50 AM | Room 214 D As simple as it gets, you are anemic as a result of either red blood cell loss, red blood cell lysis, or lack of red blood cell production. In this lecture we take a practical approach to identifying the underlying cause of anemia. This lecture will focus on using clinical and clinicopathologic clues to differentiate regenerative from non-regenerative anemia, hemorrhage from hemolysis and immune-mediated from non-immune-mediated disease.
