APPLIED CLINICAL BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE

Applied Clinical Behavioral Medicine 32 CE credit hours (RACE approved) COURSE DESCRIPTION Behavior problems result in the death or relinquishment of more dogs and cats than infectious, neoplasic and endocrine disease, combined. Almost 60% of clients have at least one question about their dog’s or cat’s behavior during any visit, and research indicates that most of these questions go unanswered. Virtually all behavioral problems are treatable and treatment results in a safer, calmer, happier community of pets. Yet education in and access to behavioral medicine remain enormous unmet needs. Few veterinary schools offer comprehensive education in modern behavioral medicine. Practices that invest in integrating behavioral medicine into their services experience growth in the complexity of services delivered across all medical fields because patients live longer and better. This course was created to bridge the gap between need and knowledge. As an applied behavioral medicine course, the instructors will provide the theoretical basis for understanding the etiology of behavioral pathology within the context of a stepwise approach to patient work-up and treatment. The labs are specifically designed to teach hands-on observational, interventional and fear-diminishing handling skills. The use of video cases, combined with the interactive format for which this course is renown, will provide the practitioner with skills that are immediately useful. This is an intense, rigorous, intellectually stimulating and fun course designed to renew the curiosity that will help practitioners forge new and courageous skills benefiting their patients and clients.

Learning Objectives: After completing this program, you will be able to: • Recognize and identify the range of behaviors associated with behavioral states and identify patterns of behavioral associations present in common behavioral pathologies • Differentiate and define the neurodevelopmental periods and apply this knowledge to case management and problem prevention • Match and demonstrate behavioral and other interventions that will aid in resolving behavioral pathologies • Analyze which pharmacological interventions are most suitable for each patient, treat patients and monitor resultant outcomes • Interpret problematic behavioral patterns in a manner that will persuade and aid clients in prevention, early intervention and treatment of the most common behavioral issues

Recommended Supplemental Reading: Text: Overall, K.L., Manual of Clinical Behavioral Medicine for Dogs and Cats, Elsevier, St. Louis, 2013. Journal: Journal of Veterinary Behavior: Clinical Applications and Research, Elsevier (www.journalvetbehavior.com).

PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES IN SOFT TISSUE & ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY

Practical Techniques in Soft Tissue & Orthopedic Surgery 32 CE credit hours (RACE approved) COURSE DESCRIPTION This four-day course is designed to teach participants the technical aspects of a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery procedures. Some ‘theory’ will be included in the lectures, but emphasis will be placed on the technical aspects used to perform each procedure thus maximizing time in the lab. Topics have been chosen that represent surgical conditions commonly seen in veterinary practice and include stifle exploratory, extracapsular fixation for ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, medial patellar luxation repair, vulvarplasty, laryngeal tie-back, femoral head and neck resection (craniolateral approach), forelimb amputation, perineal hernia repair, chest drain placement, salivary gland resection, penile and scrotal urethrostomy, anal sacculectomy, 15 minute gastropexy and rapid splenectomy. Specific feline surgery techniques will include perineal urethrostomy – a new approach, esophagostomy tube placement, chest tube placement, nasal planum resection and femoral head and neck excision via a ventral approach. Video of clinical case material will be used extensively throughout the laboratory to help illustrate each technique.

Training That Works – Training for Results Speaker: Louise S. Dunn, Snowgoose Veterinary Management Consulting Description: Our profession conditions us to be continuous learners – learning about medical advancements, animal behavior, communicating with clients, and working with a diverse group of people. Much of the learning occurs on the job, within the walls of veterinary practice. The problem is how to determine which training methods are going to work for your particular needs, and how to ensure that your training program is producing the results you need.

Learning Objectives:

• Identify necessary objectives to strengthen your training program in your practice • Organize materials and resources, both in-house and online, necessary for your training program • Judge your training program • Analyze and select the best resources and method of delivery TOTAL IMMERSION SKILLS TRAINING | NAVC.COM | NAVC INSTITUTE 2016

Looking for Profitability – Key Performance Indicators that Tell the Truth Speakers: Louise S. Dunn, Snowgoose Veterinary Management Consulting; Eric D. Garcia, Simply Done Tech Solutions Description: Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is business metrics used to evaluate factors that are crucial to the success of your veterinary practice. It is common to hear “KPI” in many discussions about business actions and profitability. It is also common to hear many managers complain that they spew out a bunch of numbers that seem to mean nothing when it comes to managing the practice. This includes social media such as bonding/ retention rates as it relates to marketing efforts and client experience. Is it paralysis due to an over-kill of numbers, or, is it a poor choice of numbers and the lack of clarity about which numbers determine what action is needed? If you want to improve profitability, you need to have a clear structure of KPIs you want to follow.

Learning Objectives:

• Recognize past indicators of results and performance that tell you how you have done • Distinguish which indicators are needed to guide you to increase results, performance, and profitability • Design action plans to monitor, communicate to the team, and take action for positive results

CHOOSE THE CHEW WITH MORE

PROTECTION THAN HEARTGARD PLUS ÂŽ

(ivermectin/pyrantel)

A soft, flavored chewable tablet that takes broad-spectrum protection even further with the proven power of milbemycin oxime to protect dogs against some common intestinal parasites and heartworm disease. The addition of praziquantel boosts coverage even more to include tapeworms for broad-spectrum parasite control.

Prevents heartworm disease and treats and controls adult hookworm (A. caninum), roundworm, whipworm and tapeworm infections in dogs. Safe for use in dogs and puppies 6 weeks of age and older and 2 lbs of weight or greater.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Treatment with fewer than 6 monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm prevention. Prior to administration of Interceptor Plus, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. The safety of Interceptor Plus has not been evaluated in dogs used for breeding or in lactating females. The following adverse reactions have been reported in dogs after administration of milbemycin oxime or praziquantel: vomiting, diarrhea, depression/ lethargy, ataxia, weight loss, convulsions, weakness, and salivation. For product label, including complete safety information, see page 26.
