MOVE 4: Improving outcomes in canine patellar luxation

“Medial Patellar Luxation (MPL) is a common cause of lameness in canine patients. This talk will review the pathogenesis of MPL and how this helps to dictate treatment options, how to maximise the information you get from your orthopaedic examination and diagnostic imaging, and give an overview of surgical methods to treat MPL – both old and new. We will also discuss the relationship of MPL to cranial cruciate ligament rupture and how best to treat these challenging cases.”

MOVE 5: Acute kidney injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a serious disease of small animals that requires rapid diagnosis and appropriate management. This presentation will briefly review the pathophysiology of AKI and discuss common known aetiologies. Diagnostic methods will be discussed, with a focus on novel biomarkers of kidney injury. A therapeutic approach will be discussed, highlighting goals of treatment and therapeutic options. This will conclude with a brief discussion of the principles of dialysis, indications for dialysis and methods of dialysis.

MOVE 6: Coagulation testing in practice

Assessment of coagulation can be difficult in practice without the right tools, and interpretation of results even trickier. This talk will give a brief review of the physiology of coagulation and how to approach the coagulopathic patient, including what tests to run. The talk will also briefly cover advanced coagulation testing and when to refer for these tests.

MOVE 7: Approach to acute diarrhoea in the era of faecal PCR

Acute diarrhoea, with or without haematochezia, is a common presenting complaint of dogs to veterinary clinics and veterinary emergency rooms. Traditionally, achieving a definitive diagnosis has been challenging in the majority of cases, and the condition is deemed idiopathic. Although infectious causes of diarrhoea are often suspected, traditional diagnostic tests have poor sensitivity for the diagnosis of bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections. More recently, multiplex faecal PCR has become commercially available, with panels designed to test for organisms associated with diarrhoea. Now the challenge is accurately interpreting the test results to make the best decisions for our patients. This lecture will discuss recognised causes of acute diarrhoea in dogs, how faecal PCR can be incorporated into our diagnostic approach, and how test results are most appropriately interpreted to guide patient management.

MOVE 8: Pain management in ophthalmology cases

We often forget how painful ophthalmologic diseases and procedures can be and often our patients will need not only need short term, but long term or intermittent pain treatment. This talk will guide you through the newest concepts of acute and chronic pain treatment with a special focus on the eye globe and the ocular annexes.

MOVE 10: Approach to fever

This lecture will cover the physiology of normal temperature regulation and the development of fever, as well as the difference between fever and hyperthermia.  It will provide evidence of fever as an adaptive response, and the contention behind whether fever is beneficial or detrimental.  We will discuss some of the literature surrounding the controversy behind the treatment of fever with antipyretics.
