This week our speakers are taking a break, so we’re using this as an opportunity to review some of our favourite webinars over the past year. This is part of a two-part series, so make sure you have a look at our blog post last week for more feel-good webinars and interesting topics.
July was the month that we hosted Canine Lymphoma on a Budget, presented by Owen Davies MA VetMB MVetMed MANZCVS(SAM) DACVIM(Oncology) MRCVS. After a few months furloughed, many clients work working with financial limitations and as a veterinary community we had to be careful with our investigations and treatments. This was a great refresher to see what can be done with limited funds, and will be relevant through the future as well.
“More than just reading the abstract: How to critically appraise a paper” was released in August, presented by Debra Archer BVMS PhD CertES (soft tissue) DipECVS MRCVS FHEA. Although it was an equine-focused webinar the skills presented are transferrable across all disciplines. August was a time when we were all doing more research than usual, a lot of us were still spending time at home and using it as an opportunity to brush up on our knowledge.
September was the host of a huge variety of webinars, so we couldn’t just pick one favourite.
First up we have Downer Cow Syndrome, presented by Paul Wood BVetMed, Msc, PGDipVetEd, FHEA, MRCVS. Dr. Wood presented some other large-animal parturition webinars this year but this was one of the most popular. His other webinars can be found here if you’re curious and want to see what else is available.
This month was also when “Will Automation Change the Role of the Veterinary Receptionist” which was a panel discussion and presentation by Alison Lambert BVSc CMRS MRCVS, Julien Renard DVM, CEO and Founder of Vetstoria, and Kate McMorris BVetMed, CertVOphthal, MRCVS, Director of Seadown Veterinary Services. It was fascinating to watch, and one of our bloggers wrote a VetTalk blog, which you can find here.
In October, we continued to cover new treatent modalities, with the webinar “Practical Tips for clinical application of Hemp CBD+CBDA extract“. This was another panel discussion, presented by Joseph Wakshlag DVM, PhD, DACVN, DACVSMR, Dave Tittle BVetMed CertVA GPCert(WVA & CPM) MRCVS RCVS, Fred Metzger DVM, MRCVS, Diplomate ABVP and, German Graff DVM MBA. We have previously hosted another webinar on hemp extract, so this was a great follow up discussion for those interested.
In November, we hosted “Investigating ill-thrift in ewes” by Valentina Busin DVM DipECSRHM PhD MRCVS. A vague presentation, there are quite a few things to narrow down and Valentina did a beautiful job of working through the process with us. There were plenty of farm and equine webinars this November, but this one was one of our favourite as we were able to expand our sheep-focused webinar collection!
Our nursing webinar “Aspiration Pneumonia” presented by Katie Gray DipAVN DipHE CVN RVN was a huge help with the influx of brachycephalic COVID-puppy patients that we are seeing this winter. Is anyone else overrun with puppy vaccinations and reproductive surgeries?
That’s it for the our highlights of the year. With hundreds of webinars to choose from, it’s a difficult one to narrow down. Why not spend some of the new year bookmarking and watching the webinars that interest you? You can also find our catalogue of webinars here, or if you’re more of a pick and choose person, you can find our shop where you can buy individual webinars here.
As always, happy watching!
