Veterinary Lecture Series 2019

February 12
Special Lecture Schedule 1:30-9pm
This series of lectures will cover the following topical issues in veterinary medicine:

Sarah Boston, DVM, DVSc, Diplomate ACVS, ACVS Founding Fellow of Surgical Oncology
Surgical Oncology Cases – Don’t Give Up on Them!
This will be a case-based discussion of surgical oncology cases that will go over some of the principles of surgical oncology and the decision-making that can go into case management. Some of the cases that seem like they have no hope can have surprising outcomes! This presentation is intended to stimulate discussion about how to make decisions about big surgeries in older patients with neoplasia.

Travis Strong, DVM
Ocular Emergencies
Ophthalmic disease is a common presentation for both routine and emergent veterinary visits. While many ophthalmic conditions are manageable on a non-emergent basis, some are indeed true emergencies if there is a chance to save vision and/or the globe itself. The intent of this presentation will be to provide an overview of the ophthalmic examination that can be performed by the non-specialist, as well as to discuss some of the most common ocular emergencies, including acute glaucoma, anterior lens luxation, ocular proptosis, acute blindness, and descemetocele/corneal perforation.
