Session - Unusual Pet & Avian - 75.0 mins - Room 2
Key fungal diseases of reptiles in Australia

Session - Integrative - 75.0 mins - Room 3
CBD rich low THC  whole plant cannabis extracts are a very useful medicine in small animal veterinary practice. They have a very large therapeutic index, very rare (and usually mild) side effects, and a broad therapeutic spectrum.  Despite the complicated legal situation for vets in Australia, many clients want to use these extracts as an alternative to  (or integrated with) prescription drugs. This presentation will help you understand cannabis extracts so then you can serve your clients better...

Session - Small Animal - 105.0 mins - Room 1
Prognosis and treatment options for canine mast cell tumours
How to give Palladia in pets with cancer
How to approach a dog with a bleeding splenic mass. Should you treat? 
Session - Behaviour - 105.0 mins - Room 2
Aggressive behaviour directed at owners is difficult for many owners to understand.  Better understanding this type of aggressive behaviour, when and why it can be appropriate behaviour and inappropriate behaviour will help you counsel your clients. Treatment and management of the this type of aggressive behaviour is possible. In many cases, appropriate aggressive behaviour is due to unrealistic expectations of the dog and miscommunication between owner and dog. Good advice can result in a happier, less conflicted household.  If a dog's aggressive behaviour is due to an anxiety disorder, proper diagnosis and treatment is often effective.
When owners and dogs fight... Understanding canine aggression directed at the owner (Part 2)

No two cases are the same in behavioural medicine. Every patient is an individual and they all have different presentations and concerns, but we put a label (diagnosis) on each case to help us define and classify their presentation. Within each diagnosis there can be many different forms/presentations. This presentation will discuss how I approach fear aggression directed towards unfamiliar people and the differences in response to treatment and prognosis seen with different presentations within this diagnosis.  

Session - Dental - 105.0 mins - Room 3
Recognizing the importance of performing biopsy along with the appropriate biopsy techniques (incisional vs. excisional) for any oral “lumps and bumps” will be one of the main goals for this lecture. In addition, we will also cover different types of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic oral growths that are commonly found in our canine and feline patients including their clinical behaviour. For the neoplastic oral lesions, the presentation will focus on the different types of odontogenic oral tumors such as peripheral odontogenic fibroma, canine acanthomatous ameloblastoma, odontoma, and others. Their classifications will be thoroughly discussed along with their cell origins as this knowledge is crucial for clinicians to determine the appropriate treatment options and management following the histopathological diagnosis. Common non-neoplastic oral tumors (also known as reactive lesions) such as gingival hyperplasia, focal fibrous hyperplasia, and pyogenic granuloma will be also discussed in this lecture. At the end of this lecture, clinicians will also be aware of the reason why the general term “epulis” shall not be used in clinical cases!
Approach in diagnosing jaw fractures and treatment with the application of tape muzzles, inter-canine bonding, intraosseous wiring, and symphyseal wiring in certain type of jaw fractures and trauma.
Tooth resorption (TR) is one of the most common oral pathology in feline patients with a reported prevalence of 28-67%. In the past, TR was also known as cat caries, neck lesions, cervical line lesions, pink spot of mummery, and Feline Odontoclastic Resorption Lesion (FORL). A progressive loss of tooth substance characterizes TR and it is known as a painful condition causing anorexia, ptyalism, lethargy, dysphagia, and oral sensitivity or “mouth shyness” depending on the severity. It is widely known that the treatment of TR can be either surgical extraction or intentional coronectomy (crown amputation) of the affected tooth. However, opinions on the treatment selection may be varied among small animal practitioners. This presentation is aimed to guide clinicians in understanding the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) classification of TR stages and types and their clinical importance in choosing the appropriate treatment option for the affected patient. Both techniques will be described along with the potential complications.
