Speaker: Michael R. Lappin, DVM, PhD, DACVIM
In this lecture, Dr. Lappin will review the current information concerning SARS-CoV-2 infection in dogs and cats. Emphasis will be placed on how this is a reverse zoonosis and there is minimal data suggesting that an infected dog or cat could infect a person and cause COVID-19. The clinical manifestations of disease will be reviewed as well as evidence suggesting that dogs and cats have minimal illness and short term shedding of the virus. How to avoid infection in your pet will also be discussed.
Speakers: Will Eward, MD, DVM
This talk explores the similarities and differences between osteosarcoma in dogs and humans. In exploring these similarities and differences, we ask the question, “How can we improve outcomes for both canine and human osteosarcoma patients?” We will look at an example of a canine and a human osteosarcoma patient, discuss how the disease is similar across species, and explore how the field of Comparative Oncology seeks to make advances in our understanding of osteosarcoma biology.
Speaker: Nicole Ehrhart, VMD, MS
There has been an unprecedented amount of very new and impactful discovery leading to a deep understanding of cellular mechanisms that drive aging. We know now that what we once thought was irreversible (aging), may in fact be reversed or significantly delayed using new molecules and therapeutic approaches that specifically target and destroy aging cells allowing for tissue regeneration, prolonged organ/tissue health and diminished risk of developing diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, dementia and cardiac disease. However, despite huge advances in our understanding of cellular mechanisms that drive aging, and various therapeutic molecules that can reverse these changes, there has been little to no translation of these understandings toward meaningful health span improvements for human or veterinary patients. This talk will discuss the fascinating new information about aging and how companion dogs are the key bridge to helping humans and pets live healthier for longer.
Speaker: Sarah Boston, DVM, DVSc, Diplomate ACVS
Can feline injection site sarcoma ever be funny? I don’t know. Let’s find out. Dr Sarah Boston will talk about the critical aspects of this disease and what we can all do to help to decrease the incidence and make this a much more treatable disease. She will also try to make you laugh. Not that this is funny, we aren’t saying that.
