Dairy Calf Gastrointestinal Disease: Diagnostics, Therapeutics, and Education

Addressing the Problem of Dairy Calf Gastrointestinal Disease Through Enhanced Diagnostics, Novel Therapeutics, and Practical Education
This course provides an overview of preliminary results and methods from a project focused on improving classifications for neonatal dairy calf GI disease through enhanced diagnostics, including epigenetic and microbial community evaluations. Diarrhea-associated neonatal calf gastrointestinal (GI) disease remains one of the most important diseases in dairy calves. Severe diarrhea impacts animal welfare and results in significant economic losses due to high mortality rates, high medical costs, and low weight gain. However, our ability to distinguish between the different pathologies associated with GI disease, i.e. our analytic accuracy of identifying different GI disease phenotypes, is hindered by limited availability and use of on-farm diagnostics and particularly the limited implementation of postmortem evaluations. Given the high proportion of affected calves treated with antimicrobials, improving on-farm diagnostic skills and therapeutic options are key for improving agriculture’s stewardship of antimicrobial use.

SDMA Clinical Utility in Small Animal Medicine

SDMA is a widely available commercial test that has revolutionized how we detect kidney disease in small animal veterinary medicine.  Despite SDMA’s success in measuring/estimating a decreased GFR, we must remain diligent in our practices to appropriately use this biomarker in regards to our patients’ healthcare. During this course we will discuss the origin, science and literature available in regards to the veterinary use of SDMA, then we will discuss several clinical cases in which SDMA values may or may not have helped in achieving an accurate diagnosis.

AVOID CAT'TASTROPHE: Updates on Anesthesia & Analgesia for Cats

Cats present some unique anesthetic & analgesic challenges and are at higher risk than dogs for anesthesia-related mortality. Small body size, fight/flight tendencies and species-specific responses to drugs can complicate feline anesthesia and analgesia. Addressing specific cat concerns can make anesthesia safer and analgesia more effective. Cat-specific anesthetic and pain management drugs and techniques, along with updates on feline-specific literature and new drugs are covered in this 95 minute On-Demand course.
