Program Topics: Equine Liver Disease: An update on Infectious Causes of Hepatitis in Horses including: Cholangiohepatitis; diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis Equine parvovirus hepatitis; the likely cause of "serum hepatitis" Equine hepacivirus hepatitis is it a cause of chronic-active hepatitis? Seasonal fever and hepatitis in adult horses Equine Tyzzer's disease Time permitting, toxic hepatopathy will be briefly discussed. Equine Neurologic Diseases that are not EPM, EDM, or CCM- A review of select neurologic diseases including: Temporohyoid osteoarthropathy Intestinal hyperammonemia Motor neuron disease versus vitamin E deficient myopathy Parelaphlostrongylus tenuis Botulism Viral encephalitis Lyme neurologic disease A Cased-based Presentation on Some Medical Causes of Weight Loss in Horses This is a case-based, interactive discussion on clinical investigation of a horse that is losing weight. Individual cases with specific medical problems will be used in this presentation. Clinical examination findings and historical information that might direct additional specific testing to help determine the cause of the weight loss. A review of ancillary testing used in the evaluation of the thin horse. Possible treatment for each condition. Value of Serum Chemistry Measurements in Equine Practice The most important part of making a diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis is to gather a complete history and complete a thorough clinical examination. In many cases measurement of serum chemistries can provide important information regarding diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis. In this presentation the clinical value of serum analytes measurements will be discussed using case examples. Leptospirosis and Anaplasmosis – Two important Equine Infectious Diseases This presentation will review clinical syndromes associated with Leptospira and Anaplasma infections in horses. Learning objectives include: • Three important clinical syndromes associated with Leptospira infections • Typical and atypical clinical syndromes that can be caused by Anaplasma phagocytophila infections • Treatments for all syndromes associated with either Leptospira or Anaplasma infections • As time permits an update on Lyme Disease in horses will be provided Best Use of Corticosteroids in Equine Practice This presentation will provide the following information on glucocorticoid use in equine practice: • Basic pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the most commonly used glucocorticoids • Diseases where glucocorticoid therapy has either apparent or documented efficacy • When to use glucocorticoids in an infectious disease • Selection of specific glucocorticoids, dose, and duration • Adverse effects of glucocorticoids in horses • Alternatives for immune suppression therapy

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH, 2020
DFO and industry groups (Lactanet (DHI), OABP, OMAFRA and OVC), in partnership with your CCVA organization, invite you to a seminar with Dr. Tine van Werven, from Utrecht, Netherlands. This initiative is part of the project "Reducing antibiotic use - considerations around selective dry cow antibiotic treatment" with funding support from the Canadian Ag Partnership program.
This seminar will take place on Tuesday February 18th 2020, from 6 to 9pm at the Chesterville Legion. (167 Queen St West in Chesterville). A light supper will be provided.
Please RSVP to Ann Godkin (firstname.lastname@example.org) for planning purposes. This small group seminar will provide a chance for you to learn what to expect and how to handle the various issues that arise in client's herds when they change the amount of antibiotic they use at dry-off time. The project committee feels it is critical for veterinarians to be involved in the antibiotic use choices producers make. Not all herds should attempt SDCT and those that do need to be helped to have good protocols for cow selection and adequate follow-up to detect adverse events. Dr. vanWerven’spresentation will focus on issues surrounding the adoption of selective dry cow antibiotic treatment in dairy herds in the Netherlands, as a means of reducing antibiotic use in dairy production. In particular shewill cover the attitudes of farmers and veterinarians towards this change, the logistics of implementation and the impact on cow health and milk quality (bulk milk SCCs, cow SCCs and clinical mastitis cases). Speaker background: Dr. Tine van Werven, Associate Professor, Dairy Herd Health Utrecht University. Tine van Werven is an Associate Professor Dairy Herd Health at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Utrecht, the Netherlands. She also works with the University Farm Animal Practice in Harmelen, the Netherlands. In this large dairy practice, she is responsible for the Herd Health Programs of the more than 300 dairy herds. She has conducted many randomized clinical trials in the field, to obtain more evidence for new and existing therapies. Within the University Farm Animal Practice, she has beenworking for several years on the responsible use of antibiotics. This practice was one of the first dairy practices in the Netherlands that made an inventory on the use of antimicrobials. Based on those figures they organized workshops and meetings for their farmers to reduce the overuse and misuse of antimicrobials. An antimicrobial reduction of 35% was achieved within five years. In 2013 she was a member of the committee who created the guideline “The use of antimicrobials at dry cow treatment”. This guideline allowed veterinarians and farmers to reduce the antimicrobials at dry cow therapy by 50% without detrimental effect on udder health performance.
