Your name badge contains the days you are attending plus all meals you selected.

The MVMA welcomes Gary Pinkel, Sponsored by: ProPartners Wealth-DVM Office, as our keynote speaker at the General Membership Session Saturday morning and an autograph session immediately following in the exhibit hall.

Thursday seminars include a variety of topics including opthalmology, neonatal emergencies, pocket pets, VFD changes, honey bees, ehrlichiosos and many more topics. In addition, there is Missouri Stocker/Feeder Quality Assurance Training and the MVMA Academy Mini-Topics Seminar packed with short, informative presentations on a variety of subjects.

• Win or lose, you don’t want to miss the fun and excitement at Friday’s Foundation Benefit Reception, Drawing and Silent Auction. Admission is free but donations are accepted to help defray costs. Hors d’oeuvres will be served. Be sure to purchase your ticket for a chance to win $10,000, and many other cash prizes. Drawing tickets are $100 and can be purchased at the registration desk

• Veterinary students should plan to attend the “Student Welcome Orientation” on Friday afternoon to help you navigate through the convention and make the most out of the event. A group photo will also be taken. On Saturday evening, we’re having a student mixer for current veterinary students. There’s also a designated “Study Hall” room on Friday & Saturday for students who want to study in between without driving back and forth and a Student Reception on Saturday.

• Back by popular demand! The convention’s entire CE program is open to veterinary technicians, practice staff, and technician students. Also, plan to attend Saturday’s Missouri Veterinary Technician Association’s Reception, sponsored by Hill’s, held prior to the MVMA Awards Ceremony and Dinner.

• Attendees are encouraged to be part of Friday’s VBMA/MVMA Student-Vet Networking where practicing vets and university students get acquainted in this new-style social networking event. Because many fourth-year students already have post-graduation employment commitments, the event is geared to first, second and third year students seeking mentorship, preceptorships, and contacts for future postgraduation employment.

Continuing Education Lectures

1:00-1:50 p.m. • Food Animal Neonatal Emergencies • Pam Adkins, DVM

This presentation will cover presenting complaints, histories, physical examination findings, and laboratory abnormalities among common neonatal ruminant and pseudo-ruminant emergencies. Recommended diagnostics and treatment considerations will also be covered.

2:00-2:50 p.m. • Common Pathologies of Pocket Pets/Exotics • Fred Williams, DVM

We will spend some time going over some of the more common presentations and their pathologies. There is a broad swath of possibilities, so we will try to be brief but cover a lot of ground. The discussion will provide you with some potential differentials to consider when dealing with these unusual circumstances.

3:00-3:50 p.m. • Precision / Genomic (P4) Medicine • Leslie Lyons, DVM

This is an emerging approach for disease treatment & prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. Precision medicine is used to understand the complex mechanisms underlying a patient’s health, disease, or condition, and to better predict which treatments will be most effective – not the average or average for an ethnic group!

DNA testing is a form of Precision Medicine. Large panel genetic testing is an improvement and further facilitates the use of genetics for diagnoses and potentially treatment of health concerns. Whole exome and whole genome sequencing of a patient is a larger scale effort to even further advance precision medicine. Genome and exome sequencing projects are available for cats and dogs and these techniques are becoming common place for the identification of mutations that cause heritable diseases and traits. Generally, if a result is negative for genetic test, the patient may have a novel genetic cause for their presentation. WGS and WES help to find novel causes. Genetic testing only confirms the presence or absence of an already known DNA mutation for a disease or trait. Precision Medicine hence incorporates discovery, which hopefully will lead to diagnosis and more precise treatment. Only a few research laboratories are equipped to conduct WGS and WES sequencing for companion animals on a Precision Medicine basis. The University of Missouri, laboratories of Dr. Gary Johnson and Dr. Leslie Lyons (99 Lives Cat Genome Sequencing Consortium), are discovering new disease-causing DNA variants for dogs and cats, respectively. Many of the researchers involved with DNA discoveries should also be able to suggest contacts for WGS / WES. As costs lower and data processing becomes cheaper and more streamline, genome sequencing can become a commercial service for veterinary diagnostics and be used by the everyday practitioner.

The horse population is living longer than ever and with this comes specific challenges and age-related changes. This talk will be an overview of the care of geriatric horses . The nutritional needs of horses changes over time. The “easy-keeper” of yesterday can begin to face issues of muscle wasting and weight loss as they enter into their later years. Horses that once thrived on round bails become thin and are seen to be quidding hay. There is no one best way to feed all older horse but we do know that with endocrine disturbances, dental attrition and other diseases of geriatric horses we may need an alternative feeding strategy. Dental disease can also have a significant impact on the health of our older patients. Dental attrition, tooth root abscesses and common dental abnormalities, such as wave mouth can effect the overall efficiency of mastication. Routine dental examinations is critical in our older patients. Endocrine disease can present a multitude of problems and must be addressed. Early diagnosis and treatment for diseases such as equine metabolic syndrome and pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction the more helpful we can be in the long term. Finally we know that musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and tendon and ligament laxity are common in our geriatric patients. Management of these problems can impact the overall comfort and quality of our geriatric patients lives in meaningful ways.

Continuing Education Lectures

1:20 - 2:10 p.m • Diagnosis and Management of Colic in the Field Setting • Alison Lacarrubba, DVM • Sponsored by Zoetis

Colic is by and far one of our more common equine field emergencies. True colic, pain and disease associated with the gastro-intestinal tract, can present with a wide range of clinical signs, as well as variable treatment options, depending on the exact cause as well as finances and location relative to a referral center. A thorough examination is critical to determine is the horse is truly showing signs consistent with a true colic or if something else might be going on, such as dystocia, neurological disease, musculoskeletal disease or even urinary tract problems for instance.

Once a diagnosis of colic has been made, finding the exact cause of the colic will allow us to institute a targeted treatment strategy. There are a variety of causes of colic, ranging from gas/spasmodic colic, to impaction colic and a variety of potential surgical colics, including but not limited to displacements, strangulating lesions, and volvulus. The vast majority of field colics will be managed medically through a variety of cathartics, hydration methods, pain management and close monitoring.

When should a horse be referred for surgical intervention? A variety of factors are assessed to determine is surgery is warranted, but a combination of the following clinical signs may lead the horse to a referral practice for the best outcome: refractory to pain management, heart rate elevation consistently over 60 – 80 beats per minute regardless of therapy, copious reflux, abnormal examination per rectum, abnormal abdominal fluid and colitis. A quick and accurate diagnosis will result in the most targeted therapy and best outcome for the horse.

Fred williams iii, dVM, dacPV

Dr. Williams is Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Missouri, College of Veterinary Medicine. He received his DVM from Tuskegee University. His research emphasis is on infectious disease, exotic animals and wildlife He teaches special and systematic pathology for professional students. “I have two distinct modes. In the first mode, I spend most of my time reviewing biopsy and necropsy slides to figure out what the pathology of the situation is and how to best relay that information to the referring DVM in order to help the patient or the client to make the best choices about what is going on with their animal. I also spend a lot of time teaching veterinary students. I really, really, really enjoy lecturing and engaging with students. Seeing that light bulb go off in a student’s eyes is a glorious treat and I am excited every time I see it! I have to keep working and adapting to different learning styles and experiences, so this keeps me on my toes. In my second mode, I get to delve into carcasses and dissect them! I am looking for evidence of pathology through systematic review of all of their tissues and trying to figure out how to tie together whatever I do (or sometimes DON’T) find with the clinical history to come up with some kind of idea of what happened. It is like surgery, but I don’t have to put it back! I have a great time exploring the various anatomies and abscessed organs I come across! Is that a tumor? NEATO!”
