Wed Nov 18, 2020 Feral Cats, Outdoor Cats & Wildlife
Wed, Nov 18, 2020
 
Agenda:

Once presented with the nature and scale of the problem, veterinarians are committed participants in addressing cat overpopulation through surgical sterilization services, counseling owners on responsible pet ownership, and by providing leadership on welfare issues.  

However, cat overpopulation is a large-scale problem, which veterinarians alone cannot solve.  Our efforts need to be accompanied by effective education campaigns and funding initiatives from humane societies and municipalities to increase sterilization, permanent identification, and prevention of unsupervised, outdoor access by domestic cats. 

This CE session will provide insight into the nature and scope of the impact of outdoor cats on ecosystem health, offering various means to mitigate or solve this problem.

DERMATOLOGY RECORDING *EXPIRES DEC 1, 2020
Tue, Dec 1, 2020
 
Agenda: Recording of Oct 25/20 live Zoom session.

Learn How To Ditch the Itch!  Approach to the Pruritic Dog


Part 1
Ah the good old “itchy dog” appointment…..a frequent entry into your daily schedule during the week. These dermatology cases can be frustrating as multiple dermatologic diseases can present very similarly, meaning a number of diagnostic tests must be run prior to a final diagnosis. Many clients coming in with their pet specifically want that “magical pill” to fix the problem so it is important to discuss with them the long term plan and how we will arrive at that final diagnosis and decide upon treatment. In today’s lecture we will start with the work up for an itchy dog; how to rule in/out infection and parasites. In the second part of the lecture, we will review the work up for an itchy dog with allergic skin disease.


Part 2
Once the possibility of a parasitic dermatitis has been ruled out and any secondary infections are being treated, we often rule in an allergic dermatitis as the cause of the pruritus in our patient. An allergic response is defined as a hypersensitive immune reaction to a substance that normally is harmless and would not cause an immune response. Food allergies, flea allergies and environmental allergies can cause allergic reactions in our patients. Flea allergic dermatitis is effectively treated using flea preventatives and anti inflammatory therapy for the patient’s comfort. For the purposes of this lecture we will focus more on food and environmental based allergies.

Sun Dec 6, 2020 Communication (DAY 1 of 2)
Sun, Dec 6, 2020
 
Agenda:

DAY 1 of 2

Well Said...the Art of Communication
 

Which Animal Are You?
In this fun and interactive session, you will discover your own behaviour style preferences and you will learn how to identify the style preferences of others. We will apply this information, using a practical framework, to help shape successful conversations with clients and colleagues. Which animal are you? We will find out during this webinar!

What Do I Say?
Success in veterinary medicine involves carefully addressing the medical needs of the pet as well as the deep concerns of the pet owner. In doing so, we encounter challenging situations and conversations. We will apply basic communication skills and approaches to successfully work through emotional conversations, financial discussions, and the compassionate delivery of difficult news.
