MOVE 1: Abdominal Imaging and the vomiting animal

Abdominal imaging and the vomiting animal: with the increased availability of ultrasound there is a tendency to skip abdominal radiographs for the vomiting patient BUT abdominal radiographs provide you with many useful clues about what is going on in the abdomen and whether surgery is indicated. This practical, case-based session will review the objective guidelines for assessment of the gastrointestinal tract with radiographs, increasing your confidence about this readily accessible and affordable imaging tool.

MOVE 2: Why is my patient coughing?

This session will explore a problem-orientated approach to coughing. Cats with coughing, and the older dog with coughing and heart disease are probably two of the more tricky clinical presentations to investigate and manage. The session will predominantly be focusing on pathophysiology of coughing, the differential diagnoses, the importance of collection a detailed history, and the investigations used to determine the cause of coughing.

MOVE 4: Heart Failure - Diagnosis and Management

The three most common diseases causing heart failure in small animal patients are myxomatous mitral valve degeneration, dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. While the signalment and pathophysiology leading to heart failure in these three diseases differ, the final consequence in severe disease, reduced cardiac output, is similar and leads to increased heart rate, fluid retention and congestive heart failure. The pathophysiologic changes leading to the state of fluid retention are discussed for these three diseases. Therapy for congestive heart failure is remarkably similar, regardless of the underlying cause and treatment in the acute, emergency phase as well as long term therapies are discussed. In addition, commonly associated syndromes, which increase morbidity and mortality, such as arrhythmias, pulmonary hypertension and arterial thromboembolism, will be examined. The best way to diagnose and treat these comorbidities will also be discussed.

MOVE 5: Anaesthesia for Caesarean Section

Jurox Logo.png

This seminar explores the anaesthesia and analgesia of small animals for caesarean section, aiming to maximise survival rates of mother and neonates. Caesarean sections can be one of the most challenging yet rewarding procedures we can perform. The altered physiology of the mother during pregnancy and the immature physiology of the neonate present several challenges that influence the selection, dose rates and timing of administration of anaesthetic and analgesic drugs. Additionally, these changes make peri-operative cardiovascular and / or respiratory complications more likely to occur. Furthermore, cases requiring caesarean section often present as emergencies, and therefore require prompt decision making. During this session I will discuss anaesthetic techniques that aim to optimise safety in both mother and neonates during cesarean section. I will review relevant literature to help you make evidence-based decisions, and will share my approach to these challenging cases.

MOVE 6: Examination and Conditions of the Fundus

The fundus is often a perplexing place for the uninitiated! This talk will focus (pardon the pun!) on how to best examine the fundus and will cover the most common conditions affecting the dog and cat. We will cover instruction on how to get the best from your ophthalmoscope and also learn to recognise and differentiate inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases and systemic hypertension to name but a few.

MOVE 7: Canine osteosarcoma management in general practice

Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone tumour in dogs. It can occur at any bony location in the body and occasionally occurs in extraskeletal locations. Combinations of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be used for tumour management and/or palliative treatment. In this webinar we review the options for diagnosis, clinical staging and treatment of canine osteosarcoma with a focus on what is relevant to you in general practice.

MOVE 8: Adrenal tumors in canines

Changes in the adrenal size or morphology are a common finding on abdominal ultrasound and may or may not be an expected finding. Determining the significance of these findings and consideration of what further investigation is warranted will be discussed. Adrenalectomy is considered the gold standard treatment for dogs with adrenal gland tumours. Despite this, the recommendation for surgery is often approached with trepidation. Current evidence shows a low peri-operative mortality and excellent long-term survival can be expected, and adrenalectomy should be recommended early and with less apprehension. Management strategies surrounding adrenalectomy and expected outcomes will be discussed.

MOVE 9: Saving lives - Immune-mediated diseases and acute poisonings

Treatment options for conditions such as severe immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia or thrombocytopaneia, and acute poisonings including NSAID intoxications have been limited until now, often leading to the loss of affected patients. Therapeutic plasma exchange is one of the newest advances in veterinary medicine and can be life-saving in severe toxicities and immune-mediated diseases. Using case studies, Dr Melissa Claus will demonstrate how this treatment modality and other forms of renal replacement therapy using the multi-functional Prismaflex have proven invaluable in saving lives. Importantly, Dr Claus will discuss the criteria that make a patient suitable for these therapies and will show you how you can access these treatment options to support your patients when they present with conditions requiring such therapy.

MOVE 10: Stay afloat in the cavitary effusions: a focus on pathogenesis and diagnosis

Body cavity effusions are common findings in clinical practice and a rapid diagnosis could be essential. There are several rapid in-house tests available to identify the cause and start the appropriate therapy. This lecture will provide insights about pathophysiology of effusion formation, laboratory evaluation and the classification of effusions; with several examples.
