AERC Fall Conference for Veterinarians


November 12, 2017

This year, our Fall CE will held at our Oakdale clinic and will be separated into three days. On November 4th, 2017, we will have the Technician Track. On November 11th, 2017, we will have the Practice Manager Track. On November 12th, 2017, we will have the Veterinarian Track. Each track will have four speakers. Six CE credits are currently pending (per track) with the MN Board of Veterinary Medicine (also good in Wisconsin). A continental breakfast and lunch are also provided.

Attendees are welcome to register for multiple tracks. We encourage you to register right away! Since seats are limited, we cannot accept walk-in registrations on the day of the event.

Veterinarian Track lectures are as follows:

Tips and Tricks for Radiographic Review by Jon Nevins, DVM, DACVR A case-based lecture providing tips and tricks for more accurate radiographic review (Approved for CE credit)

Update on Common Canine Hepatopathies: Diagnostics and Treatment by Kate Jones, DVM, DACVIM This lecture will provide a review of chronic hepatitis, copper-associated hepatopathies and biliary mucoceles. (Approved for CE credit)

Use of the SNAP Feline ProBNP Test in Asymptomatic and Dyspneic Cats by Robert George, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology) Diagnosing heart disease in cats can often be difficult. The SNAP Feline ProBNP test is a useful cage-side test that in certain situations can be used to help guide further diangostics and therapy. We will discuss what BNP is, cardiac and non-cardiac causes for NT-proBNP elevation, the clinical utility of measuring NT-pro-BNP in asymptomatic and dyspneic cats and the use of the SNAP Feline ProBNP test in the emergency setting. (Approved for CE credit)

Take a Deep Breath: Management of the Dyspneic Patient by Tracy Julius, DVM, DACVECC Critical patients with respiratory disease can be some of the most challenging cases we encounter on an emergency basis. We will discuss safe handling and stabilization of these patients, diagnosis of underlying disease, methods of oxygen delivery, and more. (Credit pending)
