Cancer in Animals

Animals get cancer and living in the same environment as us human, we can learn a lot from them.

In this seminar, we will explore cancer in animals and what we can learn from them as well as how we stage the cancer and give an overview of the therapies that are available for our furry patients.

Managing the geriatric small animal

Many of our canine companions survive well into old age, and the geriatric dog is becoming more common. Many physical, physiological, and cognitive changes occur in elderly dogs. The role of Physiotherapy in managing chronic pain is challenging, but its use can be extremely beneficial in managing many of the physical problems associated with ageing. Physiotherapy aims to restore function and movement and therefore assist with pain management whilst treating the patient as a whole system rather than a localised painful focus. Owner involvement is key to assessment and treatment. This approach must always be multimodal incorporating several specialists to bring the best benefits. Australian physiotherapists are highly skilled practitioners who use scientific evidence based research to manage and improve pain. They are the musculoskeletal experts, however they also treat neuropathic pain and neurological conditions. In this webinar we will discuss what occurs in the ageing process, and how Physiotherapists assess and treat small animals in the geriatric age group. Physiotherapists can empower owners to be able to care for their geriatric animal including managing risk factors in the home environment, to provide optimum management.

Dog bites and breedspecific legislation - what you need to know

Why dogs bite is a complex issue yet the solution is often portrayed as being very simple. Behaviour is influenced by a very elegant interplay of genetic predisposition, learning from previous experiences and the environment in which the animal lives. All of these factors need to considered together but yet rarely are. The dog (or breed of the dog) is often blamed for the dog bite but it is not that straightforward. Dog attacks, and methods to prevent their occurence, appear regularly in the media. Governments alos react to public opinion. Unfortunately media reports are often emotive and lacking in factual information, and politicians are not necessarily well versed in the scientifically based evidence on the most appropriate way forward. This makes many measures not only ineffective in reducing dog bites but also difficult to implement. Yet many Councils declare dogs as being dangerous and this has implications not only for the dog but also the owner and the community.
