Small Animal Nutrition TimeOnline

Monday, 20 September 2021

Speaker/s: David Fraser

Online

TimeOnline

Description

What are the differences between dogs and cats in their nutritional requirements? How can you use this knowledge to better advise owners about how to feed their animals? Over the past 40 years, the widespread feeding of commercial foods to dogs and cats has diminished awareness of the special nutritional characteristics of these domestic animals. Although commercial foods, formulated to meet the known nutrient requirements of dogs and cats have ensured good nutritional health, there are still circumstances where malnutrition of these species can occur. The aims of this course are to emphasise the differences between dogs and cats in their nutritional requirements, to draw attention as to how this knowledge can help veterinarians better advise dog and cat owners about how to feed their animals and to awaken an understanding about how nutritional knowledge can assist in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Dermatology TimeOnline

Monday, 01 November 2021

Speaker/s: Linda Vogelnest

Online

TimeOnline

Description

This course is designed to cover the most common range of dermatological problems faced in general practice in both dogs and cats, and reinforce a practical logical problem-orientated approach to skin disease. A common tendency is to reach for blanket symptomatic treatments as one of the first options, without too much consideration of the most likely underlying diseases or other more guided treatment options. Following a logical diagnostic approach to disease, even when potential for diagnostic testing is limited, will often guide more effective case management; and this course aims to give many practical tips on how to achieve this. A range of case examples will be individually worked through, to reinforce the theory and tips provided.

Dental Bites for the Enlightened Practitioner TimeOnline

Monday, 01 November 2021

Speaker/s: Anthony Caiafa, Kayo Kuroda

Online

TimeOnline

Description

Take your dentistry to a more advanced level and improve the health and welfare of your patients. Periodontal and dental diseases are arguably the most common issues seen in small animal practice, yet many vets feel intimidated or inadequate when faced with a complicated case that may require more than a scale and polish. This course is designed at an intermediate level for those veterinarians who have had experience in performing dental procedures. It aims to help you understand how to plan and perform efficient, atraumatic (for both you and the patient) extractions, where to place local anaesthetic nerve blocks, and how to take and interpret dental radiographs. Together, these skills will help you to avoid the common pitfalls that lead to complications such as lost roots, fractured roots and fractured jaws. Additionally, you will learn about the treatment options for traumatic malocclusions.
