Brachycephalic obstructive airway disease

Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Disease – There’s more to this than we thought!   Brachycephalic breeds have become very popular in recent years and represent a significant proportion of canine caseload. This popularity has highlighted the challenges faced by some breeds including brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS) and has stimulated debate both within our profession and in the popular press. One positive outcome has been stimulus for research in this area, which is already helping to improve our understanding and drive changes in the way we treat those affected by BOAS. Whilst there is undoubtedly much more we need to know; recent advances have provided sufficient insight to allow improvements to the way we approach these animals. This course will provide a detailed overview of BOAS including review of the diagnosis, treatment and perioperative care including both traditional techniques and newer options that have become available. The course will focus on a practical approach to the clinical situation and will be useful for any clinician with a significant brachycephalic caseload regardless of whether they would plan to perform surgery themselves. Topics to be covered include: Overview of BOAS Techniques available to confirm whether BOAS is clinically relevant. In depth consideration of the main aspects of BOAS including review of surgical techniques Concurrent conditions that often complicate these cases Perioperative management Outcome measures and prognosis www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com COURSE DATE: Thursday 3rd October 2019 COURSE TIME: 10.00am - 5.30pm LECTURER: Chris Shales PRICE: £ 295.00  + VAT ADDRESS: Manor Place,  204a Manor Place,  Kennington,  London.

Practical local anaesthetic blocks in dogs & cats

Practical Local Anaesthetic Blocks in Dogs and Cats The use of local anaesthesic drugs as part of a multimodal approach to analgesia is commonplace in human medicine; they reduce the time patients spend in hospital, accelerate recovery and improve patient satisfaction.  Peripheral nerve blocks can be quick, simple and inexpensive to perform.  Despite this, the veterinary profession still relatively under-uses local anaesthetics. This course will cover how and when to use common peripheral nerve blocks in the limbs and head in dogs and cats. Starting with theory lectures before moving onto canine cadaver based practical sessions allowing delegates the opportunity to apply the theory learned, develop their practical skills and gain confidence in these procedures. There will also be some case-based discussion and an opportunity for delegates to discuss their own experiences. Topics to be covered include: How to perform common peripheral nerve blocks for use in orthopaedic, soft tissue and dental procedures. How and when to perform a lumbosacral epidural nerve block. Revision of how local anaesthetic drugs work, including the complications and contraindications associated with their use. Cadaver-based practical sessions. Case-based discussion – when to use the nerve blocks you’ve learnt. www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com COURSE DATE: Tuesday 25th June 2019 COURSE TIME: 10.00am - 5.30pm LECTURER: Frances Downing and Heide Klöppel PRICE: £ 495.00  + VAT ADDRESS: The Clinical Skills Lab Manor Place,  204a Manor Place,  Kennington,  London.

Below are just some of the webinars available to our members or can be purchased individually For more information on our courses and membership please visit our shopfront --------------- Feline injection site sarcomas Rachel Hattersley Feline injection sarcomas are highly aggressive mesenchymal tumours which occur at the site of a previous injection, leading to an inflammatory reaction and uncontrolled fibroblast proliferation.  It is important to note that although vaccines are often implicated in the development of such tumours, feline injection site sarcomas can be associated with all subcutaneous injections including microchipping.  Although infrequent (estimated at 1-10 per 10,000 vaccinations), management of these tumours is challenging due to their size and locally invasive nature.  Distant metastasis occurs in only approximately 20% of cases, however local recurrence is reported in up to 40% of cats with apparently clean histopathological margins. Management of these tumours requires detailed and appropriate pre-operative advanced imaging for staging and to aid with surgical planning.  Wide surgical margins and a well planned surgery by an experienced surgeon have been associated with the lowest recurrence rates and reconstruction of such excisions can be challenging.  Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are also an essential part of the management of feline injection site sarcomas. This talk will aim to address both the epidemiology and suspected aetiopathogenesis of feline injection site sarcomas and also discuss the surgical management, post-operative care and neoadjunctive/adjunctive therapies used in the treatment of such tumours.

Below are just some of the webinars available to our members or can be purchased individually For more information on our courses and membership please visit our shopfront --------------- Home alone: the diagnosis and treatment of canine separation anxiety Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy Separation anxiety is a prevalent problem, affecting 14-29% of all dogs.  Dogs with separation anxiety exhibit signs of anxiety, fear, or panic, including excessive vocalisation, destruction, and house soiling. This typically occurs when the dog doesn’t have physical access (when the dog’s owners are out of the house) but it can also occur when the owners are home but the dog cannot reach them.  Separation anxiety is a serious behavioural issue, adversely affecting the quality of life of the dog and his owners. It is frequently mis- or under diagnosed making it a huge canine welfare concern. --------------- Scary sounds: the diagnosis and treatment of canine noise phobias Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy Firework season is approaching fast. Are you inundated with questions from clients with dogs who are terrified of the sound of fireworks being let off? Year in, year out veterinarians are overwhelmed by questions from frantic dog owners as to what to do with their overly anxious pets. Vets are also overwhelmed by the array of different techniques and products that can supposedly help to ameliorate this condition. During this webinar, Behaviour Vet, Valerie Jonckheer-Sheehy will guide veterinarians as to how they can diagnose and treat patients suffering from this condition. Correct diagnosis is essential as not all dogs are as scared as they may seem to be at first glance and those that appear “ok” may not be. However, dogs that are truly affected by this condition are stressed and their welfare is compromised. They must be treated to safeguard their wellbeing. Furthermore, dogs suffering from a noise phobia...

Dermatology

New Approaches to the Management and Treatment of Atopy and Otitis Monday 20th May 2019   Allergic dermatitis offers a lot of difficulties and confusions for pet owners as well as vets due to its complexity – immune system aberration, physical changes of the epidermis, historical beliefs and newer facts as well as secondary changes which worsen the overall problem. In addition, as it is a chronic disease, cases may need veterinary attention for over 10 years. This needs very sound and clear communication between vet and owner as well as vet to vet, vet to nurses, vet to receptionists and vice versa. This dermatology day aims to firstly provide a ‘red line’ to diagnose the major role players for the individual patient, secondly offer a concept for management, which treatment to use when, which is tailored specifically to each patient (and owner) and lastly discuss communication with pet owners and colleagues. Enabling delegates to go back to their practices not feeling frustrated or anxious about the next itchy patient, but empowered to ‘sort them out’! Topics to be covered include: Allergic work up (dogs versus cats) How to get the most out of your food trial Treating skin infections in the 21st century Treatment modalities of atopic dermatitis Unusual presentations of allergic skin disease Otitis externa www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

 
Canine Behaviour: Confrontation and Separation

Monday 17th June 2019   Understanding the emotional motivations behind unwanted behaviours in dogs, is the key to being able to treat the problem in an effective manner. In the past, some of the difficult behavioural problems encountered in general practice, like dog bites and separation related distress, have been managed with a generic approach based on the presenting sign. This course, suitable for both vets and nurses, will explain how to approach each case on an individual basis by taking an accurate and in depth history, identifying the underlying emotional motivation behind the behaviour and creating a tailor made plan for each case. The aim of the course is to give you the insight and skills to be able help these often highly emotionally charged cases in an effective manner. Topics to be covered include: Accurate history taking – getting to the root of the problem Identifying underlying emotions for presenting behavioural signs Creating a patient specific plan for managing and treating unwanted behaviours Understanding the importance of preventative behavioural medicine Improving detection of warning signals to enable prevention of dog bite incidents Dog bite prevention initiatives – in practice and the local community www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

 
ECGs – Understanding The Ups And Downs

Wednesday 3rd July 2019   This one day course is aimed at increasing your familiarity and confidence with both recording and interpreting ECGs. ECGs provide invaluable information about heart rate and rhythm in our canine and feline patients. However, ECGs are often underutilised as a diagnostic tool in practice, due to a lack of confidence amongst vets in how to interpret the ECG findings and their clinical significance for the individual patient. Management options for the different arrhythmias can cause confusion. This course will aim to simplify arrhythmia diagnosis and management and will utilise an ECG-reading workshop session, to give delegates hands-on practice in ECG interpretation and plenty of opportunity for informal discussion. Topics to be covered include: How to use your ECG machine and improve the quality of the traces you record How to develop a logical approach to ECG trace interpretation How to identify the different types of bradycardias and tachycardias most commonly encountered in our canine and feline patients How to recognise the clinical significance of these different arrhythmias, to enable you to choose the most appropriate management options Reinforce your knowledge and understanding of canine and feline arrhythmias through case study examples and a practical ECG workshop component www.centralcpd.co.uk www.vet-ecpd.com

 
Clinical Nutrition for Nurses
