Renee Schmid, DVM, DABT, DABVT 8:00 AM - 8:50 AM | Room 214 D For curious dogs or cats, it’s difficult to resist the allure of plants. Pet Poison Helpline receives multiple calls on a daily basis from concerned pet owners and veterinarians about plant ingestions. While many plants are simple gastrointestinal irritants, some have the potential to cause life-threatening toxicity. Thus, it is helpful for clinicians to be familiar with common plants that have the potential to cause severe toxicosis in small animals. Plants that will be discussed in this lecture include: Lilies (Lilium spp. and Hemerocallis spp.), foxglove (Digitalis lannata and D. purpuea), oleander (Nerium oleander), Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis), kalanchoe (Kalanchoe spp.), rhododendrons and azaleas (Rhododendron spp.), laurels (Kalmia spp.), cycad palm (Cycas spp., Macrozamia spp.) and many others.

PSYCHOTROPIC DRUG USE FOR THE GENERAL PRACTITIONER Valarie Tynes, DVM, DACVB, DACAW 8:00 AM - 8:50 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Medications alone are rarely if ever, the best solution for a behavior problem but they often play a vital role in treatment. The majority of Renee Schmid, DVM, DABT, DABVT 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM | Room 214 D Renee Schmid, DVM, DABT, DABVT 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM | Room 214 D psychotropic medications used in animal behavior medicine are safe when used appropriately and without their use, many animals will suffer unnecessarily.

IDENTIFYING AND MANAGING SEPARATION RELATED PROBLEMS IN DOGS Valarie Tynes, DVM, DACVB, DACAW 9:00 AM - 9:50 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Separation related problems cause an enormous amount of suffering in dogs and are extremely frustrating for pet owners. Rapid identification of the problem and effective solutions for management are critical in most cases to prevent injury in the pet. Without prompt intervention, many of these dogs are at risk for relinquishment or euthanasia. A proactive approach to identifying the problems before they become severe will increase the likelihood of treatment success. This presentation will provide a review of the common signs and symptoms, guidelines for developing differential diagnosis and a straightforward approach to management and treatment. MANAGING THE MULTI-CAT HOUSEHOLD Valarie Tynes, DVM, DACVB, DACAW 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Single cat households appear to be on the decline while numbers of multi-cat households rise. With a basic understanding of the social behavior of the cat, you can see why this phenomena invariably leads to stress for household cats and behavior problems that damage the human feline bond. However, all multi-cat households do not have to result in trauma. Peace is possible but it requires a willingness on the part of the pet owner to provide for the cats' basic behavioral needs. When these needs go unmet, medical problems and behavior problems are likely. This presentation will help the practitioner better understand how the cats' normal social structure leads to problems in the multi-cat household and how they can be prevented. Management of feline aggression will also be covered. DIAGNOSING AND TREATING FELINE HOUSE SOILING PROBLEMS Valarie Tynes, DVM, DACVB, DACAW 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 1 Elimination outside of the litter box is one of the leading causes of feline relinquishment. Unlike many other common pet behavior problems, house soiling is usually a result of a cat behaving in a perfectly normal (for the cat) but unacceptable (for the human) manner. Medical conditions may contribute to the problems but they are rarely a result of true emotional or mental illness. For this reason, successful treatment is possible, as long as the pet owner is willing to look for the underlying cause of the problem and meet the cats' behavioral needs. This presentation will include information on how to identify the different forms of feline house soiling, why they develop and how to treat them using a straightforward, step wise approach. P FOR EVERY QRS AND QRS FOR EVERY P? WHAT DOES THIS REALLY TELL ME? Henry Green, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology) 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM | Hemisfair Ballroom 2 This presentation will take you back through the basics of reading electrocardiograms (ECG). All too often we remember the questions we are all taught to ask when reading an ECG and it makes sense until we find that the answer is "no" to one or more of the questions we ask when interpreting this graph paper with squiggle lines all over it. This talk will not only give you an algorithm to reading ECG's, but will clearly demonstrate what you should be looking for on the ECG as you process your way through an electrocardiogram.
