15 August 2019

Lungworm: A Referral Clinic Perspective

Thursday 12th September: 7.00pm

Join us for our upcoming CPD evening for vets on Thursday 12th September. This session will be presented by Marc Dhumeaux, Jessica Adamany, Sue Manning and Chris Posporis, and is kindly sponsored by Bayer Animal Health. 

19.00-19.30 - Arrival drinks & cold buffet

19.30-20.30 - 15 minute lectures in ophthalmology, neurology and internal medicine

20.30-21.00 - Treatment & prevention Q&A

Overview

The prevalence of Angiostrongylus vasorum is increasing within the UK, so we will look at why it’s important to consider it as a possible differential diagnosis. Although most dogs develop cardiorespiratory disease, a significant proportion develop coagulopathies and neurological signs, as well as vague and non- specific signs.

The specialists at Pride Veterinary Centre will discuss some of their more unusual cases of lungworm in the fields of neurology, internal medicine and ophthalmology, and discuss how a diagnosis was made. Several methods of diagnosis are available including faecal analysis and a rapid patient side blood test with good sensitivity and specificity.

The talk will finish by covering the best options for treatment and the preventative strategies available.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the life cycle and geographic incidence of Angiostrongylus vasorum in the UK
  • Knowledge of the clinical signs and consequences of Angiostrongylosis, particularly from the perspective of referral clinicians.
  • Understand the diagnostic tests available to document Angiostrongylus vasorum infection.
  • Knowledge of the best treatment options and preventative strategies.
