EJCAP Spring issue 2015: “Can I catch it from my pet?”
What’s the risk for owners if pets have influenza, toxoplasma or cryptosporidium? Mike Lappin and Thomas Vahlenkamp, two speakers at the 2015 FECAVA Symposium present the evidence, with practical tips on management.
The spring issue also includes the 2014 FECAVA lecture on perineal hernia (by Dick White), two excellent reprint papers (on a lab test for pleural effusion and on the cause of acute haemorrhagic diarrhoea) and a paper on practice management with tips for training front-office staff.
The interactive CPD journal contains the usual wealth of videos (e.g. endoscopy of a dog with acute haemorrhagic diarrhoea), quizzes (test your knowledge on feline protozoa), slide shows (dorsal perineal hernia repair) and downloads ( 2014 FECAVA congress proceedings).
Veterinary app review
New in this issue are the “How to…” spread, in which experts share practical advice in lectures presented at recent major congresses of FECAVA members, as well as a regular column with a review of veterinary apps.
