Ultrasonography is a complex discipline to master. How do you use vasculature as a “road map”? How do you reliably find the pancreas and adrenal glands? How do you get the opportunity to image the “normal” to identify the “abnormal”?

This workshop is perfectly tailored for returning practitioners, recent graduates, and seasoned vets seeking to refine their surgical techniques.

Feline Emergencies: Mastering the Art & Science Conference

Saturday, 28 October 2023

Speaker/s: Rachel Korman, Stacey Brady, Kath Briscoe, Ashlie Saffire, Lara Boland, Nick Cleland

The University of Sydney

Workshops and Conferences


Feline emergencies are especially hard and stressful!!! Because cats are more fragile than dogs, they hide their signs and tend to present late, when they are hanging onto life by a thread. So, managing feline emergences is more of an art than a science, although it has a pathophysiological basis. The secret is often “less is more” – sedate them, let them get their cool in an oxygen cage, and get everything you need ready. Then support them along the diagnostic pathway and work out the best way to fix them. Point of care ultrasound has changed many of the classic approaches to emergency medicine in the cat. Drug recommendations have evolved and shifted and often times, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to management. So it’s timely the CVE revisits this topic in a dynamic 2-day program put together by Rachel Korman, Kath Briscoe and Lara Boland – three very experienced but accessible feline specialists. In addition, Ashlie Saffire (US-based feline specialist) will offer an international perspective; neurologist Stacey Brady will provide the latest in management of neurological presentations and Nick Cleland (surgeon) rounds out the program. This conference will suit people who already are doing emergency work who want to lift their game. In addition, we think one person from every general practice should do this course – to teach the rest of the team what’s new and what’s changed in the approach to the critical cat.

Rabbit Dentistry: A Practical Workshop

Wednesday, 06 December 2023

Speaker/s: David Vella and Joanne Sheen

Lane Cove

Early Bird Rates Expire: 11/10/2023

Workshops and Conferences


Rabbits have always been common pets, but there has been a shift in the way they are nurtured and valued by their owners. Once perhaps considered “replaceable”, these little companions are now loved family members – and the expectation is that most of their medical and surgical needs can be met in general practice. Dental disease is one of the most common conditions seen in rabbits. This workshop is intended to equip clinicians with the knowledge and skills to confidently approach, diagnose and treat these cases. Presentations will discuss important aspects of rabbit dentistry including anatomy, radiography, instrumentation, dealing with complications and post operative care. The practical sessions will provide the opportunity to practice radiography and common dental procedures under the guidance of your two expert tutors, ABVP diplomates Dr David Vella and Dr Joanne Sheen. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your expertise and improve your capacity to care for your rabbit patients.
