  • Treating pain adequately is extremely important for any animals who are or will be having any kind of pain. Untreated or inadequately treated pain can cause significant stress, delay in healing, negative effects on cardiorespiratory function, endocrine system and more. With the current nation-wide opioid shortage, providing good pain management has become even trickier. Utilizing loco-regional anesthesia and some non-opioid analgesics as well as some veterinary opioid products can help this problem very effectively. According to Indiana Law, continuing education on opioid prescribing and potential abuse will be required to renew your Controlled Substance Registration (CSR) by October 15, 2019. All practitioners that renew their CSR will be required to complete 2 hours of continuing education addressing the topic of opioid prescribing and opioid abuse.

  • The announcement by The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in August 2018 that African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) was confirmed in China raised concerns that this reportable pathogen of swine would likely gain entry into the United States (US). African Swine Fever Virus causes significant economic losses due to death of infected pigs, subsequent virus elimination by “stamping out” of infected animals from premises and trade restrictions that are imposed when a country or territory is determined to be virus positive. Concerns expressed by state and federal veterinarians and swine producers about ASFV, CSF, PRV and other transboundary disease introduction to US are legitimate.

  • Listen. Do you hear it? The voice of inclusive excellence in veterinary medicine grows stronger! If we are serious about driving equity, diversity and inclusion in the field of veterinary medicine, then intentional efforts toward enhancing our commitment to inclusive excellence should be of highest priority. This session will explore dynamic approaches that develop inclusive excellence practices that align with the mission, values, and business imperative in health care in general and in veterinary medicine in particularly. Across all sectors, especially in healthcare (i.e., animal science & medicine, food safety, human medicine, dentistry, clinical psychology, public health, etc.) entities, there are far too many bridges yet to cross such that women, ethnic minorities, those with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, and other diverse populations have full participation (i.e., culturally responsive policies and practices, access to opportunities and career advancement, and seen as experts of their lived experiences.) Therefore, with blazingly articulated courage, veterinary medicine must model the gold standard of purposeful and intentional, culturally responsive leadership. During the 60th anniversary of the Purdue Veterinary Medicine we will “aim high” to bring our mission to fruition of inclusive excellence.

  • As we progress with elimination of other bacterial and viral causes of morbidity in young pigs, we have had to reconsider the significance of Streptococcus suis as a primary cause of disease. We will explore the complexity of S. suis infections as both commensal and pathogenic strains can be present within a pig. We will provide an update on clinical presentations in the field paired with current research to combat this production-affecting bacteria.

While there are far fewer options for birds than for exotic mammal species, careful consideration of the needs of each patient can help improve anesthetic outcomes.

  • Do you know of other options when your ERU horse or owner can no longer tolerate systemic or topical medications? Do you know which horses are the best candidates? Do you have an idea of cost? We will discuss in-depth the risks and benefits as well as case selection for intravitreal injections, suprachoroidal cyclosporine implants, and pars plana vitrectomy.

  • Avian patients are presented to veterinary hospitals for many clinical conditions that warrant obtaining radiographs. In evaluating the radiographs a clinician observes a gastrointestinal radiographic foreign body (FB) that is of a higher density than the surrounding tissue. How is a clinician to determine if the FB is clinically significant or not? A protocol will be discussed to evaluate the clinical significance of radiographically visible gastrointestinal FB and if such FB is innocuous or necessitates removal.

  • Pet birds often present in clinical practice for illness related to ingestion of foreign material containing toxic agents. Psyllium gavage, a non-surgical solution, is non-selective, has variable success, and in cases of gastrointestinal ileus contraindicated. Surgical procedures previously described have limited application, variable risks, and potentially severe complications. A novel surgical procedure was developed that provides consistent results independent of the number of ingested foreign bodies, minimal complications, and applicable in all avian species greater than 90gms and some species less than 90gms.

  • It is not uncommon to find some cardiac arrhythmias in animals under anesthesia even in clinically healthy patients. To provide safe anesthesia, it is important to correctly diagnose each arrhythmia and understand when and how to treated it. In this session, cardiac arrhythmias commonly seen in anesthetized dogs and cats (e.g., bradycardia, tachycardia, AV blocks, VPCs, escape beat) will be discussed.

  • Have you ever had a horse with a painful eye that is not responding to appropriate treatment? Have you always offered referral to a hospital or an anesthetized enucleation? This talk will cover how to perform a standing enucleation in the field or hospital setting. We will discuss everything from sedation protocols and the surgery to post-operative care.

  • Mandibular prognathism, when the maxillary beak rests inside the mandibular beak, is a condition most commonly seen in juveniles, but can arise secondary to conditions that affect the bill’s proper growth or articulation. A surgical technique, utilizing dental posts in larger avian species and parapulpal pins in smaller avian species, in combination with dental light cure bonding/composite materials created a single simple prosthetic application for the correction of mandibular prognathism.
