CPD Lecture Series for Veterinary Professionals

Partners in Care

Our Partners in Care lecture series is offered to veterinary professionals to provide high quality and relevant CPD with our specialists throughout the year. Covering a range of topics, we design the lectures for vets and vet nurses based on what they want to learn.

Our lectures are held at either our Orthopaedic and Neurology hospital in Eashing, in our lecture theatre or our Oncology and Soft Tissue hospital in Guildford, in our Skills Lab. We provide tea, coffee and pizza on arrival and both rooms are airconditioned for your comfort.

In this lecture, we will review diagnostic, surgical management and postoperative complications of patellar luxation. We will put particular emphasis on having a deeper understanding of the extensor mechanism, bone deformities and soft tissue adaptations commonly seen in dogs with patellar luxation. The aim of the lecture is to assist practitioners to create a tailored plan for dogs with patellar luxation seen in general practice.

The distal canine limb can suffer from a plethora of ailments. From fractures to luxations, infection to neoplasia, degeneration to congenital deformities, and many more. Lots of these conditions can look similar making diagnosis and management a challenge. In this session we will aim to pick apart the confusion with a selection of common and unusual case examples, and explore a range of treatment strategies available.

The session aims to familiarise and review a wide variety of non-surgical treatment options in canine osteoarthritis and musculotendinous pathology. Emphasis will be placed on regenerative medicine and biological therapeutics. Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of the biological principles underpinning musculoskeletal stem cell-based therapeutics and offer a broadened view of how regenerative medicine may be incorporated into a multifaceted treatment structure. The application of stem cells and PRP as a primary treatment in muscle and tendon lesions will also be described. We will also explore medical management of canine OA, multimodal analgesia and disease-modifying medications, and discuss newcomers to the medication market. Our rehabilitation lead will expand upon supportive therapies including physio and hydrotherapy, underwater treadmill, laser and shockwave use before rounding off the session with case examples and time for Q and A.

14% of traumatic appendicular fractures in dogs and 29% in cats were classified as open. The goals of treatment are to prevent infection, promote bony union, repair soft tissue damage, and restore function. The initial management of these injuries can have a huge impact on the course of recovery for the patient. This lecture will review the latest evidence on open fracture management in the veterinary patient, discuss the management protocols we use in the clinic and assist you in making the best choices for your patient if they present with an open fracture.
