VMABC Winter CE Meeting Sunday January 11, 2009



9:00 to 9:30 am – Registration & Refreshments

9:30 to 11:30 am - Things Aren't Always What They Seem - Enhancing Your Diagnostic Efficiency With Ultrasound

Dr. Marty Henderson owns and operates SonoVet, Inc., a mobile ultrasound consultation service that covers south Austin, 1-35 corridor, and San Antonio.  Marty has over 120 hours of ultrasound CE, and he has extensive experience teaching sonography and training veterinary students and practitioners in Texas, California, and Ohio.  He is a graduate of "The" Ohio State University where he received his DVM in 1999

Through amazing advances in technology, ultrasound has become a standard of care in veterinary medicine and can dramatically help the practitioner define & stage disease processes as well as find occult disease.  Through mobile services and referral centers, advanced diagnostic ultrasound is accessible to the general practitioner.   In this presentation we'll explore a series of abdominal and cardiac case examples where the clinical signs and history suggested the obvious and the ultrasound exam found something quite different.  The ultrasound exam findings allowed the practitioner to treat the case effectively, go to surgery with confidence or resulted in a prognosis in which the owner could have peace-of-mind.  We'll wrap up with a discussion of indications for ultrasound so you can get the most out of this diagnostic medium.

11:30 to 12:45 pm - Lunch Buffet


12:45 to 2:45 pm - LECTURE TBA


2:45 to 3:00 pm - Break & Refreshments



3:00 to 5:00 pm – Heartworm Updates & New Immiticide Protocols 



Dr. Gayle Millard is a Senior Technical Services Veterinarian with Merial, LTD.  She is a graduate of Oklahoma State University where she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1985.  Prior to leaving private practice in 2005, she worked as an associate veterinarian, practiced emergency medicine, and owned/founded an AAHA certified companion animal practice.


Merial has recently devised a highly interactive and totally non-branded CD on the Heartworm Life Cycle, and on the latest recommendations regarding heartworm treatment.  It is designed as a teaching tool to graphically illustrate the complex nuances of the heartworm life cycle and to illustrate the implications of various heartworm treatment options.  It is not designed to promote product, and in fact does not mention preventative or treatment medication by brand name in any way.  It is exhaustively referenced, and includes research data from the original development of melarsomine, and current recommendations from the American Heartworm Society.  At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will be given a copy of the CD to take back to their clinics as a resource.  Attendees will have the opportunity to visit a website and answer questions from the CD, and in so doing obtain 5 hours of RACE CE credit.


You may pay online or you may send in a check or money order by mail. The payment address is:  VMABC, Post Office Box 737, Adkins, TX  78101
