Approach to the Acute Abdomen

 

Presented by,
John Anastasio, DVM, DACVECC

Acute abdomen refers to the acute onset of abdominal pain. Rapid diagnosis, hemodynamic stabilization, and treatment of the underlying etiology can lead to improved patient outcomes. We will examine common reasons for acute abdomen and diagnostic tools to  differentiate etiologies in an efficient manner. We will then review a variety of cases that highlight a goal-directed approach to treatment.

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING: ADRENAL HORMONE EXCESS (CUSHING’S AND BEYOND)

 

Presented by,
Justin Guinan, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM)
Tuesday April 24th, 2018
6:00pm

This discussion covers some of the more common adrenal hormone excesses, focusing primarily on hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing’s syndrome) in dogs. We will analyze this common endocrine disorder in terms of pathophysiology, diagnostic options, and treatment – all of which can be frustrating to determine for a patient. Also to be discussed is the controversial phenomenon of sex hormone excess (so called atypical Cushing’s syndrome) in dogs and hyperaldosteronism (Conn’s syndrome) in cats. Case discussions and personal preferences in terms of management will be reviewed.

Upcoming Continuing Education Event



A Review of the Down Animal and When to Refer


Presented by,
Christine Senneca, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)
Wednesday, February 28, 2018
7:00pm

Veterinarians are often presented with patients that are non-ambulatory, and these cases have either an acute or chronic onset of signs. In this lecture we will review the neurologic examination and neuro-localization for animals with spinal and neuromuscular disease, the most common differentials, and a few rather unusual causes of signs. Furthermore, we will discuss some important conditions that frequently mimic neurologic dysfunction and go through the recommended diagnostic steps, treatment options, and associated prognoses, including what can easily be performed at a primary care facility.

Upcoming Continuing Education Lecture

jager-2It’s Lame Being Lame

 

Gayle Jaeger, DVM, MSpVM, DACVS

Wednesday, November 9, 2016
7:00pm

When working with canine orthopedics, veterinarians are no strangers to the appearance of clinical lameness in their patients. However, lameness should not be a catch-all term, as its presentation can indicate various and sometimes unexpected underlying issues.  In this lecture, we will review case presentations and discuss a variety of clinical lameness in dogs; identifying the site of lameness, possible differentials, diagnostic techniques and treatments. Join us as we unearth and review recent innovations and practical application techniques regarding a symptom that we see on an almost daily basis.
