Speaker/s: Ralf Mueller, Sonya Bettenay & Stefan Hobi

Online

Course starts in 30 day/s

Distance Education

Description

Develop a logical approach to disease investigation and management of a range of complex dermatological cases, particularly immune-mediated and systemic diseases. Skin problems are among the most common reasons for presentation in general practice. The CVE Dermatology Distance Education program is a modular course that aims to provide you with the practical skills necessary to work-up and resolve these often recurrent cases with minimal frustration for both owner and clinician.   The ‘Advanced Dermatology’ course covers diseases which may at times be more difficult to recognise and for which there is often a lack of practical information in textbooks and readily available literature.  The diseases covered are not as common as allergies and infections but can be more life-threatening and often require uncommon treatments. The diseases include immune-mediated skin disease, scaling diseases, non-inflammatory alopecia and cutaneous signs of systemic disease. While much of the emphasis is on developing a logical approach to case management, this course reviews the latest information available on a wide range of conditions and presents the latest evidence-based treatment options available. Ultimately, having more confidence in your abilities to manage skin patients will lead to higher job satisfaction as well as improving patient outcomes. Prerequisite: Completing either the Pruritic and/or Infectious Skin Disease Distance Education course is a prerequisite for enrolling in the Advanced Dermatology Distance Education course.

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.
