SESSION ONE: 9:30 - 10:45 AM

Thomas Phillips, DVM
Tips and Practical Solutions to Dental Challenges - All veterinarians face challenging dental cases. This course will offer options and techniques to successfully accomplish difficult extractions, oronasal fistula, and tips and tricks for dental procedures.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn techniques for successful extractions • Learn options to treat oronasal fistulas • Identify when ankylosing resorbing tooth roots should be extracted verses retained


SESSION TWO: 10:45 - 12:00 PM

Danielle Berube, DVM, DACVECC

Respiratory Distress in the Small Animal Patient - This presentation will review the many differentials for patients presenting in respiratory distress.  The lecture will be organized based on anatomic locations within the airway, including upper airway disorders, pulmonary causes of respiratory distress, and diseases of the pleural space.  Within each section, we will focus on the physical examination findings, diagnostic options to localize the disorder, and stabilization techniques for the patient.  We will also discuss less common causes of respiratory distress such as acute lung injury (ALI), acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), transfusion related acute lung injury (TRALI) and even some examples of nonrespiratory look-alikes. 

Learning Objectives:

• Identify the various causes of respiratory distress • Understand the diagnostic options available to localize the condition • Learn methods to stabilize your patient in respiratory distress 


SESSION THREE: 1:00 - 2:15 PM

Chris Ryan, DVM, DACVR

Introducing Diagnostic Ultrasound in General Practice - This lecture will begin by reviewing the basic operation of ultrasound equipment with a focus on hardware and software features common to almost all machines.  The various settings and controls will be reviewed, along with the effects that these have on overall image quality, and how to utilize these settings to optimize image quality. A roadmap will then be developed for applying ultrasound in everyday general practice, beginning with the basics of evaluation for abdominal or pleural cavity fluid, and proceeding to perform a complete basic abdominal ultrasound exam.   Normal sonographic anatomy and measurements will be reviewed, along with a recommended acquisition protocol for submission to teleradiology services.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the basic operation of an ultrasound machine, including common hardware and software features, the effects these have on image quality and how to optimize diagnostic images. • Understand the conventions for ultrasound image acquisition and labeling. • Recognize normal sonographic anatomy for a basic abdominal ultrasound exam


SESSION FOUR: 2:15 - 3:30 PM

Alison Khoo, BSc, BVMS, DACVIM (Internal Medicine)

Diagnosing and Treating Canine Incontinence and Uroliths - Urinary incontinence is a common presenting complaint in veterinary practice. Treatment of refractory cases may become a major source of frustration for both owners and veterinarians. Medical, surgical, and interventional therapeutic options will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the disorders associated with urine retention and their management • Understand the pharmacological and non-pharmalogical options for managing a patient with sphincter mechanism incompetence • Understand the risks and benefits of surgical vs. minimally invasive management options for urolithiasis

The lectures will be live streamed from Troy, NY to the Morris Conference Center
