This weekend in Fremantle, Western Australia, veterinarians, vet nurses and industry professionals are invited to attend the state conference of the WA division of the Australian Veterinarian Association (AVA).

The conference is titled Heads or Tails? How to make better decisions when diagnosing and treating those challenging cases, and boasts a diverse program that will appeal to anyone in the field who has an interest in animal behaviour and medicine, according to WA division president Dr Ronald Schneider.

“We’ve got a great line-up of speakers [local and international] this year. In addition to catering for vets, we also have a third stream dedicated to vet nurses and they’ll learn what’s new for them in managing patients with urological conditions. They’ll also learn about ways to deal with dog and cat behaviour problems,” said Dr Schneider.

“As summer draws closer so too does the bushfire season, and we’ll have a workshop on assessing and treating burnt wildlife which I’m sure will be popular based on the numbers we’ve had at similar workshops in the past.”

Conference topics include:

  • Aggression in dogs, the use of medication to modify behaviour and what is new in the world of animal behavioural medicine
  • Diagnosing and treating urological conditions in dogs and cats
  • What is new in equine medicine including how to treat head trauma and other wounds and manage equine diseases known to occur in WA
  • The latest in cattle reproduction

AVA president Dr Robert Johnson and CEO Mr Graham Catt will both be attending the event, to be held 28-30 October at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle by Rydges. Full details and register here.
