Small Animal Infectious Diseases

Day course

Course Date and Venue:

Thursday 5th October 2017 Hardwick Hall Sedgefield

Lecture Summary:

Small animal infectious diseases are once again in the spotlight. There has been an increase in the numbers of dogs being imported into the UK, more cases of rabies in Europe, frequent isolation of MRSA from our patients and regulatory bodies showing an ever greater interest in our antibiotic
prescribing practices.

There has never been a better time to brush up on your knowledge!

This one day course will suit all first opinion practitioners with a blend of practical advice and theory presented using a mixture of specific lectures and case based discussions. The morning will focus on general principles by covering the approach to pyrexia (probably the most common presenting sign of infectious disease), antibacterial resistance and a discussion on vaccination in practice.

The afternoon will focus on a wide range of specific infections – from common infections to rare but important diseases.

The day is designed to provoke thought and allow you to share ideas with colleagues as well as convey specific knowledge.

Pyrexia in practice: a logical approach to treatment and investigation

Antibiotics and antibiotic resistance: how it affects you

Vaccinations and adverse reactions: what you need to remember

Imported infections: it can happen to you!
