Developments in Wound Care and Antibiosis by Dr Carrie Milton
Date: 23 February @2pm
Please note that the first webinar will be available as soon as you sign up, please post your questions, the speaker will be live on 23 February at 2pm!
As private practitioners, we spend much of our time treating wounds, ears, pruritus and dermatitis, and looking after surgical incisions. Many of these cases require some form of antibiosis. Recent studies have shown that appropriately selected topical therapy is preferential to systemic treatment in many cases. Chlorhexidine gluconate, one of the most widely used disinfectants in veterinary medicine, is unfortunately toxic to fibroblasts and keratinocytes and slows wound healing. Hypochlorous acid has been hailed as the new gold standard for use in human cosmetic surgery, amongst other contexts. This webinar presents these developments and introduces you to using Effivet in the veterinary context. Effivet is a veterinary-specific formulation of hypochlorous acid, manufactured in Europe and sold locally by Ascendis Animal Health.

Go with your gut by Dr Carrie Milton
Date: 22 June @2pm
Did you know that the gastrointestinal (GIT) microbiome has been implicated in the development of atopy, obesity, diabetes mellitus and autoimmune disease? GIT dysbiosis is the focus of much research in both human and animal health at the moment. This webinar discusses the microbiome of small animals and its role in the immune system; the differences between pro-, pre-, syn- and postbiotics; and a number of recent studies demonstrating the importance of protecting the GIT microbiome through diet and the supplementation of a synbiotic like Probivet (Ascendis Animal Health).
All by myself….separation related problems by Dr Aileen Pypers
Date: 03 August @2pm
Separation related problems include a spectrum of behaviours associated with anxiety, stress and distress, such as panting, pacing, house soiling, destructive behaviour and barking/howling, exhibited by a dog when they do not have access to a specific person or people in general. While the aetiology of separation related problems remains unclear, what is irrefutable is that these symptoms stem from the dog’s emotional state when left alone and are not as a result of ‘naughty’ behaviour or boredom. In this webinar we will look at the constellation of symptoms associated with this behavioural problem, diagnostic markers, how to educate pet parents, prevention and treatment using the pillars of a behavioural treatment plan – medication, nutraceuticals, behaviour modification and environmental management.
