In 2019, we will have a Behavioural Medicine stream at NVC that has already become traditional.

It is important for veterinary doctors to differentiate physiological and behavioural problems. Moreover, they must treat/correct them, respectively.  At our sessions, we will teach you to understand patients and their body language even better, to recognize signals of discomfort and pain, fear and aggression.

The sessions will be interesting for doctors specializing in behavioural problems, doctors willing to understand their patients better, as well as breeders and dog handlers.

In 2019, we will discuss non-standard small animal behaviour problems and methods of their correction.

The speeches will be delivered in English (with simultaneous interpretation) and Russian.

Our keynote speaker will be cheerful and charming Lisa Radosta. Dr. Radosta is owner of Florida Veterinary Behaviour Service. She completed a residency in behavioral medicine at the University of Pennsylvania where she received the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists Resident Research Award two years in a row.

Dr. Radosta will tell us how to properly choose medication for behaviour problems, which antianxiety drugs are more effective and in which cases, will speak about dubious habits of pets, such as coprophagy and excessive barking.  She will also share challenging clinical cases.

Come and join us, if you want to understand the animal language.

Routine practice of a veterinary doctor includes a lot of activities and manipulations. However, the cornerstone of medical activity is helping the patient through proper diagnosis.

We will discuss the most common conditions and will tell you how we determine the final diagnosis.

The intensive care sessions at NVC 2019 will be focused on cardiorespiratory physiology and hemodynamics. For three days, we will be reviewing in detail such sophisticated issues as blood circulation, heart and lungs performance, oxygen delivery and utilization.

Our expert, Doctor Bernard (Berny) Hansen is one of the founders of the contemporary veterinary intensive care. He has been involved in practical and research work for 40 years and has trained a large number of residents and interns. He is Associate Professor and Director, ICU, Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care at NC State University, one of the major veterinary medicine research centers globally. Dr. Hansen is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care and a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. He is one of the key teachers of Cardiorespiratory Bootcamp – the annual cardiorespiratory physiology advanced course for ACVECC residents in the USA.

This year, we plan to present the draft concerted recommendations of the Colleague of Veterinary Specialists and the Society of Veterinary Anesthesia “The Institute for Development of Veterinary Intensive Care, Anesthesiology and Critical Care – VITAR” based on analysis of all available information on two subjects – planned infusion therapy and use of glucocorticoids in emergency and intensive care. We invite all veterinary specialists who have experience in reading and analysis of primary sources to work on the recommendations. Artem Pavlyuchenko is the coordinator for the infusion therapy part, Anna Maltseva is the coordinator for the steroid part.
