With Conf. Reg. Fee: Vets $425 Wet Lab Only Fee: Vets $625 Wet lab registration includes lunch.

This seminar series and combined wet lab will introduce the veterinarian to entry-level abdominal ultrasound imaging in the small animal practice. The seminar consists of four, 50-minute lectures. The basic physics, an overview of instrumentation, common artifacts, and scanning techniques will be reviewed, as well as normal anatomy and appearance of the abdominal organs. Wet lab participants will be introduced to basic ultrasound image manipulation (knobology), the physics and artifacts of abdominal ultrasound, learn scanning techniques and learn how to identify normal abdominal structures through scanning of live animals. Interaction between the radiologist and participants will be encouraged.

This session provides hands-on instruction in the area of feline dental extractions and local anesthesia blocks. The lab will lead off with a lecture on indications for feline extractions.

Improve your proficiency in performing practical eyelid and orbital surgeries while gaining an appreciation for the skill level required for most corneal and conjunctival procedures. Receive step-bystep instructions on tarsorrhaphies, temporary eyelid tacking, entropion correction, eyelid reconstruction, prolapsed third eyelid gland replacement, corneal debridement techniques and enucleation, including a review of conjunctival grafting and corneal laceration repair.

This course is designed to teach participants the technical aspects of a variety of canine soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures. Some theory will be included in the lectures but emphasis will be placed on how to perform each procedure. The instructors will utilize video clips of clinical cases that represent the procedures participants will perform in the lab. Surgical procedures will be performed immediately after viewing the video. Topics have been chosen that represent surgical conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice.

This seminar series and combined wet lab are designed for veterinarians who want to further their training in small animal ultrasound. Lectures will briefly review ultrasound physics and artifacts, and assist the participants in fine-tuning the image. Normal intra-abdominal structure will be reviewed and abnormal intra-abdominal pathology will be emphasized. Wet lab participants will gain experience in completing a routine small abdominal ultrasound examination, knowledge of normal sonographic anatomy and appearance of commonly identified pathologies. Some of the more challenging intra-abdominal structures to image will be emphasized. Interaction between the radiologist and participants will be encouraged, and the attendees will have an opportunity to address personal areas of concern in their understanding of abdominal ultrasound scanning techniques.

Extraction of mandibular canines, mandibular second molar, maxillary fourth premolar and molars, and root tip retrieval. Repair of oronasal fistulas, palatal defects with bone grafts and oral tumor surgery.

Søren Boysen, DVM, DACVECC Serge Chalhoub, BSc, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM)

With Conf. Reg. Fee: Vets $475 Wet Lab Only Fee: Vets $675 Ever struggle with the cause of dyspnea in a cat that is too unstable to take radiographs or draw blood for ProBNP levels (cardiac, respiratory, pleural effusion)? Ever debate if you can safely give a patient IV fluids or when you should stop giving IV fluid boluses? Have you felt frustration at not finding a cause for patients presenting for “ain’t doing right” with no specific clinical signs? Veterinary pointof-care ultrasound (VPOCUS) can help you manage these patients! VPOCUS techniques are rapid, easy-to-learn and practical ultrasound skills that ANY practitioner can apply in every day practice. VPOCUS is commonly used as a patient-side diagnostic tool to rapidly identify underlying conditions and help direct further diagnostics and therapy. VPOCUS has a high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of abdominal effusion and other abdominal applications, and several thoracic, vascular and cardiac pathologies. Through four hours of comprehensive and interactive lectures (lots of banter between the two lecturers!) with several case examples followed by a three-anda-half hour hands-on laboratory on live animals, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice the skills of VPOCUS. In addition, vascular access techniques using ultrasound will be discussed and practiced on a phantom chicken breast model.

Denise Rollings, CVT, VTS (Dentistry)

With Conf. Reg. Fee: Techs $95 Wet Lab Only Fee: Techs $150 This is a one-hour lecture discussing safety, terminology, normal and abnormal anatomy, basic pathology, and labial mounting of dental radiographs followed by hands-on training. Learn how to obtain a diagnostic intra-oral radiograph using the latest state-of-the-art equipment taught by some of the most highly trained veterinary technicians in veterinary dentistry. There is a low teacher-to-student ratio to ensure everyone takes all the images necessary to obtain full mouth radiographs of a dog and cat using cadaver heads. This is the most effective way to learn intra-oral dental radiography because it imitates real-life patients without the stress of having to monitor anesthesia while trying to learn at the same time.

With Conf. Reg. Fee: Techs $95 Wet Lab Only Fee: Techs $150 The lecture explains instrument handling, cleaning and sharpening; the importance of proper cleaning techniques; probing; and charting. Following the lecture is a detailed, hands-on wet lab that will provide instruction on the proper way to do a complete dental prophylaxis and oral examination including accurate charting. Learn how to properly handle instruments using the latest state-of-the-art equipment taught by some the most highly trained veterinary technicians in veterinary dentistry. There is a low teacher-to-student ratio to ensure everyone receives individual instruction while probing, cleaning and charting the mouth of a dog and cat using cadaver heads. This is the most effective way to learn correct and safe technique because it imitates real-life patients without the stress of having to monitor anesthesia while trying to learn at the same time. The lecture also describes landmarks, drug doses, benefits, contraindications and complications of dental regional blocks. Correct placement and administration of local block analgesia is practiced using cadaver heads and skulls until the attendees are comfortable with this skill.
