The field of equine endocrinology is currently undergoing a period of rapid development in our understanding of several common equine endocrinopathies encountered in equine clinical practice. This course focuses on a revision of the underlying pathophysiology of key equine endocrinopathies, and a review of the most recent literature on the diagnosis and management of these conditions.
This course is designed to give the participant a more advanced understanding of small animal echocardiography. Major topics include in-depth cardiac anatomy and physiology, techniques for achieving high‑quality results, case presentations of important diseases and hands‑on scanning of normal dogs.
This 4-day conference brings together local experts from across Australia to present the updates that are important to YOU, and YOUR patients. New and novel infectious diseases of cats and dogs, leptospirosis, mycobacterial disease and the southward spread of rat lungworm are all covered.
This course aims to teach practitioners the indications for surgery and give them the information needed to better prepare for, plan and perform a surgical procedure. Common approaches and techniques for both soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures are described
We routinely recommend and perform biochemistry panels in dogs. But what do elevations in liver enzymes mean for your patient – especially when they’re unexpected? Elizabeth Jenkins will help you understand how to interpret these variations.
How do you safely anaesthetise a patient with head trauma, keeping it stable without exacerbating the condition? Mathieu Raillard will take you through the factors that will help you maximise your patient outcomes.
This is your opportunity to be mentored by leaders in the field and be individually guided on techniques and tips that will make your life much easier – and your outcomes better! Christine Hawke and Tony Caiafa are recognised as both leaders and gifted educators with a capacity to empower vets with the skills they need in daily practice.
Ultrasound is an interactive and extremely useful diagnostic imaging modality in clinical practice. It is highly operator dependent, so some experience and knowledge is the key to driving the ultrasound probe with more confidence and being able to interpret the findings. This course is designed to give you the essential knowledge on how to optimize image quality, how to find abdominal structures such as the pancreas and adrenal gland, and how to approach some common challenges faced in clinical practice such as free abdominal fluid, nodular disease and ileus. A case based approach will be used to explore the common diseases associated with these problems and how to diagnose them.
