Session - Small Animal - 75.0 mins - Room 1
Have you ever struggled to determine a nutritional plan for a dog with kidney disease and concurrent pancreatitis? You’re certainly not alone. In this session we will take a look at a few of the most common queries we get on the Hill's Helpline. Using real case examples and a step by step approach, we will formulate nutritional plans for each case. 
Session - Dental - 75.0 mins - Room 3
When vitality is challenged - how does the tooth respond to trauma?
Paedodontics is the branch of small animal dentistry that deals with the dentition of immature animals. Developmental, genetic and iatrogenic factors may cause damage to the deciduous teeth as well as life-long damage to the immature permanent teeth. This presentation discusses the causes and conditions that affect puppies' and kittens' teeth and how they may be treated.

Session - Equine - 105.0 mins - Room 2
Peritoneal fluid analysis in the assessment of equine colic and abdominal disease is a useful diagnostic tool. PF assessment can help the field practitioner obtain a better understanding of the underlying disease process and have more information to guide their clients. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the diagnostic value of point-of-care peritoneal fluid (PF) analysis for ambulatory practitioners. We will discuss the indication for PF collection, how to obtain PF, which specific information can be quickly gained to field practitioners through simple methods and point-of-care testing, interpretation of PF analysis and potential complications associated with performing the technique. 
Taking a horse to colic surgery is often met with fear and trepidation from the owner. In early studies in the 1980’s, the prognosis for survival in horses undergoing colic surgery was often guarded. As such, the reputation that horses undergoing colic surgery are never the same or will likely die often dissuades owners from considering colic surgery as a viable treatment option. The focus of this talk is to discuss the reality of prognosis and outcome measures in horses undergoing colic surgery and how the prognosis has markedly improved over time. The aim of this presentation is to go over different surgical colic lesions, what is involved with taking a horse to colic surgery, understanding which factors do affect outcome, what perioperative advances in surgical technique and managing the surgical colic patient have been made and finally the prognosis for both survival and athleticism. 
Session - Cattle - 105.0 mins - Room 3
Cattle presenting with neurologic disease represent a significant diagnostic challenge to the veterinarian. Accurate differentiation and diagnosis is critical, due to the potential zoonotic and herd-level implications of many bovine neurologic diseases. This session will use photos and videos to demonstrate localization of neurologic lesions in cattle. Common areas of confusion will be clarified using real-life examples. The sign-time graph will be presented as a useful tool in categorizing differential diagnoses based on clinical course 
The primary aim of the backgrounding/vaccination study was to measure the effects of respiratory vaccines for cattle placed in local backgrounding facilities then feedlots on feedlot health and growth rate. With backgrounding, cattle are placed in a facility with more space than a feedlot pen, and fed a low grain ration or pasture.
