Lecture Summary

From summer 2021, we are introducing changes to the way veterinary graduates are supported during their transition from vet school to their first job. New graduates will no longer enrol onto the Professional Development Phase (PDP) and will instead be part of our new structured programme of support, the Veterinary Graduate Development Programme, or VetGDP. This session will provide an overview of VetGDP and give you the information you need in order to plan your veterinary graduate recruitment this year.

There will be a live Q&A at the end so that we can address any queries you may have.


Aimed at

This session is open to anyone in the veterinary team including:

  • veterinary surgeons who may be considering becoming a VetGDP Adviser
  • practice managers and others involved in veterinary graduate recruitment 
  • anyone who would like to find out more about VetGDP

Exhibitor Stream | 15:30 - 16:20      Histiocytic diseases in dogs and cats: an overview of clinical presentation and diagnosis

Presentation - Alison Lee


Lecture Summary

Histiocytic proliferative disorders are the source of some confusion, given their complex nomenclature and nonspecific clinical presentations. These diseases occur in both dogs and cats and derive from Langerhans cells, dendritic cells and macrophages. This presentation provides an overview of histiocytic diseases in dogs (histiocytoma, cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis, cutaneous histiocytosis, systemic histiocytosis, histiocytic sarcoma and dendritic cell leukaemia) and in cats (progressive histiocytosis, histiocytic sarcoma and pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis), including their cellular origins and clinical presentation. An overview of their diagnosis, including the use of cytology, histopathology and immunohistochemistry is also provided.


Objectives

  • Recognise the various histiocytic disorders that occur in dogs and cats, including their origins and clinical presentation
  • Know the key differences and similarities between these conditions
  • Gain an understanding of the diagnostic approach to these diseases
  • Appreciate how immunohistochemistry may be used in the diagnosis of histiocytic diseases and the limitations of this technique in practice


Aimed at

  • Veterinary surgeons
  • Veterinary students
  • Veterinarians with an interest in pathology

Live Programme Sessions

Exhibitor Stream | 11:20 - 12:10    Bilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy for canine pituitary dependent hyperadrenocorticism

Presentation and Live Q&A - with Karla Lee 


Lecture summary

Canine hyperadrenocorticism is the third most common canine endocrinopathy in the UK, affecting an estimated 1 in 400 dogs. 85% of dogs with hyperadrenocorticism have a pituitary tumour, resulting in high circulating adrenocorticotropic hormone that stimulates excessive cortisol production by the adrenal gland. The reported treatment of choice for pituitary dependent hyperadrenocorticism is hypophysectomy, but the availability of this technique is limited. Medical treatment with Trilostane is the most common treatment. Trilostane treatment aims to reduce cortisol production in the adrenal gland, but it is associated with a 16% rate of adverse effects and requires lifelong treatment and ongoing hormone testing.

Bilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy is presented as a safe and valid, alternative treatment option for pituitary dependent hyperadrenocorticism, with case examples and surgical videos.

Live Programme Sessions

Exhibitor Stream | 11:20 - 12:10    Dealing with coprophagia in dogs  

Presentation - Helen Harrison


Lecture summary

Coprophagia (the eating of faeces) is a common and unpleasant habit exhibited in dogs, yet it is likely underdiagnosed as owners find it an embarrassing topic to talk about. Whilst it can be caused by underlying medical conditions, it is often a manifestation of a underlying behavioural problem. This short webinar will cover what these underlying medical and behavioural causes can be and how to tackle them, to help your clients resolve this problematic behaviour in their dogs.
