Dermatology TimeOnline

Monday, 01 November 2021

Speaker/s: Linda Vogelnest

Online

Course starts in 8 day/s

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.

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.
