Jennifer Barrett, DVM, Ph.D., DACVS, DACVSMR (1.2 CE)

There has been growing interest and excitement surrounding stem cell research for both human and veterinary medicine. Because of the number of potential injuries and disease processes that may benefit from regenerative therapies, much hope has been placed on the field. It is important for veterinarians to understand the field of stem cell biology in order to decide whether to use new therapies offered by commercial enterprises. This lecture will cover the basic biology of stem cells, including: what are the similarities and differences between stem cells from different origins, how might stem cells be used to help treat disease and injury, and what more we need to learn before stem cells can be more fully integrated into clinical practice.

 
9:10-10:10am

Jennifer Barrett, DVM, Ph.D., DACVS, DACVSMR (1.2 CE)

This lecture will review some of the ground-breaking information about stem cells in research animals and human clinical trials to treat inflammatory conditions, and how it may impact some of the clinical therapies using stem cells and other regenerative medicine therapies for animals. This area may have broad-reaching implications for the future of veterinary and human medicine.

Sheila McGuirk, DVM, MS, Ph.D. (1.2 CE)

Abomasitis, abomasal bloat, abomasal tympany and ulcers are common amongst dairy calves and can emerge as a herd problem. With a complex etiology, this syndrome requires a systematic and detailed farm investigation to discover contributing risk factors. This lecture will review etiology, farm risk factors and a herd-based approach to solving the problem.

 
 3:55-4:55
 

Sheila McGuirk, DVM, MS, Ph.D. (1.2 CE)

Due to the ubiquitous presence of coccidial oocyts in the environment and the severe economic impact of infection, coccidia control and prevention programs are established on most calf and heifer operations. Unfortunately, even with the inclusion of effective drugs in the diet, clinical and subclinical disease is a major problem. The purpose of this session is to describe an approach to trouble shooting coccidiosis in dairy calves and heifers.
