Veterinarian Track

Neurology & Neurosurgery
The Neurologic Examination
This lecture will be a systematic review of the neurological examination in veterinary medicine. The purpose of the lecture is to provide the backbone for performing a complete exam which will be the building blocks for making a correct neuroanatomical diagnosis in the patient and making appropriate suggestions for ancillary procedures. Medical "pearls of wisdom" will be recommended throughout the lecture to improve on doing the examination efficiently and arriving at correct conclusions. The lecture will be supported by videos, diagrams, images and charts. Hopefully after seeing the lecture, attendees will have a better understanding of the systematic approach to the nervous system and uncovering the location of neurological diseases.
Internal Medicine
Looking Good, Feline Good: Prevention & Management of Hyperthyroidism With Multiple Comorbidities
Hyperthyroidism is a common endocrine disease in cats, but older cats often have multiple disease processes. Learn how we might educate feline owners in prevention of hyperthyroidism, as well as managing more complicated cases of feline hyperthyroidism with concurrent diseases (chronic kidney disease, diabetes, heart disease). Lastly, discuss the impact of treatment modality on the quality of life of cats and their owners.
Emergency Medicine
Diagnosis and Management of Bacterial Pneumonia in Dogs
Pneumonia is a common disease in dogs that can result in a spectrum of severity. Early diagnosis and appropriate antibiotic therapy are essential for successful outcomes. This lecture is aimed at identifying the most common causes for pneumonia in dogs, antibiotic options, and outcome measures.
Dentistry & Oral Surgery
Clinical & Radiographic Decision Making In Veterinary Dentistry
This lecture will discuss the many common as well as uncommon dental pathologies we encounter. Both clinical images and intraoral radiographs will be used to guide attendees through decision making processes in clinical diagnosis and treatment planning.
Interventional Radiology & Endoscopy
Bladder Stone Management In Dogs (and Some Cats)
Urolithiasis is a common condition affecting dogs and cats. This presentation will review the most common types of bladder stones, and discuss both medical and surgical strategies for management. A particular focus will be paid to helping the clinician assess the most likely type of bladder stone present in order to formulate an appropriate treatment plan for the patient prior to stone removal. Additionally, options for bladder stone removal other than a traditional cystostomy will be discussed in detail. Descriptions and videos/images of procedures will be provided as well as presentation of literature comparing and contrasting these procedures with the traditional cystotomy. 
Lipoma Variants
Discussion covering the less frequently seen variants of the subcutaneous lipoma, including intermuscular, infiltrative, and liposarcoma. We will review the common ways to differentiate these variants and treat them, with case examples.

Coagulation Testing: More Than Just a Blue Top Tube
A brief overview on the formation and dissolution of clots and the risks of coagulation disorders in the veterinary patient. Diagnostic tests for these dynamic patients will be discussed in detail followed by a brief review of treatment options.
Blood Bank
Jessie Campanile, B.S., CVT
A Day In The Life of a Veterinary Blood Bank
Spend a day in the life of a veterinary blood bank nurse. Go through each appointment with them in a day to witness different species and attitudes in each of their appointments to see which protocols are used for each and why. This is also a firsthand look into the emergency aspect with type specific on-call donations and emergency whole blood donations based off the cases in the hospital at any time. Spend a day with happy, healthy, tail wagging, treat eating, kiss giving, blood donors helping to save the day!
