Each course can be taken independently in any sequence as fits your schedule. The courses are case oriented with emphasis on practical problem solving exercises.
Clinical work-up of respiratory medicine and basic neurology problems will be presented in a case oriented approach.
Typical and less common problems of dogs and cats presented with respiratory diseases (2 days) and neurological problems (2 days) will be used to demonstrate a structured and problem-oriented work-up.
These cases will serve as bases to discuss physiology and pathophysiology, diagnostic tests such as laboratory investigation and diagnostic imaging plus treatment plans including drugs, diet or surgical options.
International guidelines and flow-charts, if existing, as well as updated literature information will be presented to the delegates during the work-up of the cases.
On the final day of the course, cases will be presented for interactive discussion and delegates are responsible to solve each case, i.e. find a diagnosis and set up a management plan.
• Day 1 – Upper respiratory (nose, larynx, trachea) diseases
• Day 2 – Lower respiratory (pneumonia, bronchitis, lung worm, etc.) and pleural diseases (pleural effusion, pneumothorax, neoplasia, etc.)
• Day 3 – Neurologic examination and neuro localisation, seizures
• Day 4 – Peripheral neuropathies, neuro-infectious problems, pain and fever
• Day 5 – Respiratory and neurological cases (interactive)
