Full program details to be announced very soon.

Day 1 – Journal Club with Prof Danielle Gunn-Moore: Fascinating New Ideas in Feline Medicine
with Dr Danielle A. Gunn-Moore
This very interactive Journal Club will discuss some of the many interesting papers that DGM has had the privilege of working on over the last year or so. Depending on how the discussions go, I hope to cover our recent papers on Feline Dementia (aka Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome), including its diagnosis and management, plus a paper on the role that concurrent FIV may have; Feline Pancreatitis, its causes, recognition and management; Feline blood pressure monitoring – Doppler vs Oscillometric, does it matter; and FIP – discussing the newly available treatment options. If we get time, I will then cover the key take-home messages of other papers, covering Feline Genetics, Tuberculosis associated with feeding commercial raw food, and the role of Telemedicine for feline consults, and possibly others.

Day 2 – Mast Cell Tumours – are we entering a paradigm shift?
with Dr Ryan Taggart
The last two years have witnessed a number of significant events in the world. In the world of canine Mast Cell Tumor (MCT) research, the same can be said. Recent evidence has brought into question conventional diagnostic and treatment approaches to MCT cases. This new data is changing the way Oncologists, Surgeons and other specialists at major institutions are managing these cases.

Day 3: 17th February - Fracture fixation - how to avoid the dreaded revision surgery
with Dr. Alasdair Renwick

The best option for both the pet, owner and surgeon is to get a fracture to heal well on the first attempt. Most complications are due to poor decision making rather than poor technique. This webinar will highlight the management and more importantly the avoidance of the most common types of fracture complications. Specific types and locations of fractures, which are associated with an increased risk of failure, will be discussed with strategies to avoid this occurring. The various implant systems (pins, ESF, plates and locking plates), available will also be described. The advantages and disadvantages of each implant system and the guidelines for application of each system will be highlighted. The relevance of how this relates to the risk of complications will discussed. Using a case-based approach from over 10 years of specialist orthopaedic practice, various types of complications will be demonstrated as well as strategies for revision surgery. By the end of this webinar the delegate will have a good understanding of why some complications occur and therefore how best to avoid them.
