October 25th – Hannah Campon on OA

The pain of managing chronic pain
"when I first became interested in arthritis I thought there was some hope that I would find a defined topic that I could be come very skilled at. Since that date each goal post reached has opened up yet more fields with more goal posts. I feel that arthritis is a hugely underestimated disease that not only causes unnecessary suffering in the latter years of a dog's life but can be present from a very young age overlooked because "the dog has always walked like that". I hope to inspire others to start their journey of light bulb moments when managing OA"

Nov 9th – Chemopet

Grand Rounds – people to bring their cases if interest on neoplasia

December 13th – Jenny Hull - Goats are a little different and require a little a bit of extra knowledge. But working with goat keepers be it small holders or bigger herds can be very rewarding. With only 9 veterinary medicines actually licenced for goats in the UK (one of those been water for injection), many drugs are used off-licence.This talk aims to be a very simple guide to goat veterinary medicine for the practitioner covering the common problems such as worms, Johnes, cocci, mange, lice and disbudding. The tips and tricks have been developed over time in practice working with smallholders and bigger commercial herds.
