Nutrients For Musculoskeletal Health: Repairing In Rehab

  • Specialty: Nutrition
  • Speaker: Laura Gaylord, DVM, DACVIM (Nutrition)
  • Sponsor: Standard Process Veterinary Formulas
  • RACE-approved: 1.0 CE Credit Hour

Physical rehabilitation is a powerful modality that can improve patient care and well-being. Nutrition plays a key role in physical rehabilitation by providing the building blocks for the body’s musculoskeletal system. Nutrients are critical in surgical recovery/wound healing, physical performance enhancement, weight management and improved conditioning/geriatric care patients. Nutritional assessments should be performed for every rehabilitation patient because malnutrition is a significant limitation on the success of physical rehabilitation. Nutrients essential for rehabilitation include macronutrients (protein, fats, carbohydrates) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals). A supplement plan can also be optimized to support body tissues/organs during a rehabilitation program. Select nutrients will be discussed including omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, glucosamine/chondroitin, anti-inflammatory herbs (Boswellia and turmeric), and phytocannabinoids. Lastly, nutrients that can support the body during times of stress and recovery are discussed. Cases will be presented to highlight management of nutrition and supplements during physical rehabilitation.

Don't Fear the Cysts! The Down and Dirty of Giardia Diagnostics and Treatment

  • Specialty: Parasitology
  • Speaker: Yoko Nagamori, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVM (Parasitology)
  • Sponsor: Zoetis
  • RACE-approved: 1.0 CE Credit Hour

Diagnosing and treating giardiasis in our veterinary patients can be a very intense, thought-provoking exercise! In this case-based presentation, we will discuss and learn more about the pathophysiology of Giardia as it relates to our patients and its prevalence in the environment. We will also talk about different testing options for diagnosing this protozoan parasite and when those should be performed. Finally, we will talk about when treatment should be implemented and what that treatment should entail. You will leave this presentation knowing about the latest innovations and recommendations around Giardia, all while working through a common presentation of a veterinary patient case!

Cancer in Dogs: How and When is it Detected and is There Room for Improvement?

  • Specialty: Oncology
  • Speaker: Angela L. McCleary-Wheeler, DVM, PhD, DACVIM (Oncology)
  • Sponsor: PetDx
  • RACE-approved: 1.0 CE Credit Hour

Major veterinary medical organizations recognize the importance of early cancer detection in dogs; however, guideline-driven screening protocols for early cancer detection are lacking, and cancer is often detected at advanced stages. Diagnosis of canine cancer at earlier stages, or at earlier substages (e.g., prior to the onset of clinical signs) has been proven to lead to better outcomes for many cancer types. This session will examine data from over 350 cancer-diagnosed dogs to establish how the presenting complaint came to attention and led to a definitive diagnosis of cancer in these patients. Additionally, the session will review the typical age at which cancer is diagnosed in dogs from a cohort of over 3,000 cancer-diagnosed patients. Using this data, an “age to start cancer screening” can be recommended, based on an individual dog’s breed or weight. The session will conclude with a discussion of how blood-based liquid biopsy testing may offer a convenient, non-invasive screening tool to aid in the earlier identification of cancer in dogs.

Upcoming live webinars

Probiotics and the Gut

  • Specialty: Nutrition
  • Speaker: Jacqueline C. Whittemore, DVM, PhD, DACVIM (SAIM)
  • Sponsor: Nutramax
  • Date: January 26, 2023, at 7 PM EST
  • RACE-approved: 1.0 CE Credit Hour

Probiotics are an increasingly valuable tool in management of some – but not all – gastrointestinal disorders due to negative effects of current therapies and failure of currently available treatments to yield optimal patient outcomes. This talk will present the evidence for – and against ­– probiotics for management of common gastrointestinal disorders.
