Dr HANS D. WESTERMEYER, DVM

Dr. Hans Westermeyer grew up in Chile, South America and always had a keen interest in the well being of animals. To that end, he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and then his degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri's College of Veterinary Medicine. While in school he became fascinated by ophthalmology, a discipline that requires incredible dexterity and attention to detail as well as an understanding of the animal as a whole, and decided to pursue specialization in that field. Before being accepted into a three-year ophthalmology residency-training program, Dr. Hans first completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Teaching Hospital and then a research fellowship at the University of California-Davis. Dr. Hans completed his ophthalmology residency (approved by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists) at the University of Tennessee Veterinary Teaching Hospital in June of 2010 and moved to Hong Kong in October. Dr. Hans and his wife have a Jack Russell Terrier that keeps them busy most of the time they are not working. However, when there is extra time Dr. Hans enjoys camping, hiking, and playing the piano.

6 -10 September 2010 The ESAVS are holding the new

Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy of Small Animals I - Intensive Training course in Vienna / Austria from 6 -10 September 2010.

Physical therapy from theory to practice is an essential part in the treatment of orthopaedic and neurological patients.

This course gives an overview of the basic principles of physical therapy and their implementation into the clinical practice. The scientific background of common used modalities and their practical use will be explained and exercised during the course.

The topics of the course will cover the following:

Introduction: PT the future of your practice
During this part of the course we will talk about the scientific basics of PT and how to integrate it into your practice. Do we need a special physical therapy examination? What did you examine until now and what will you examine additionally in the future? In the practical part you will train range of motion and muscle circumference measurements.

From theory to practice
Let's talk about common used physical therapy modalities. We will cover Massage, Thermotherapy, Therapeutic Ultrasound, Electrotherapy, Hydrotherapy and therapeutic exercises. What are the physiological effects of the different modalities; are they evidenced based medicine and how can we use them in animals? Each modality will be explained in theory and practice.

Common indications and how to design a rehabilitation program
During this part of the course specialist surgeons will present the basic knowledge, diagnosis and the conservative/surgical therapy. Subsequently we will present the main rehabilitation plans for each disorder with focus on osteoarthritis, "back pain", joints and spine post operative treatment and a special on "the cat in the physical therapy practice".

Put it all together: Do it now yourself
You will work in small groups with one of our patients. Examine the dog, make the diagnosis and develop the treatment plan. Present your results to the other participants and discuss with them!

For details and to register please visit the following link: http://www.esavs.org/en/artikel.php?a=531

Dr. Richard Gowan
BVSc (Hons) MACVSc (Feline medicine) CMAVA.
The Cat Clinic - Melbourne

Richard has a passion for all things feline medicine and runs his own cat only clinic in Melbourne. He established this clinic in 2005 after spending 6 years at the Cat clinic in Brisbane training under Dr Vic Menrath. He runs his 4 vet practice with the able help of his fiancˆme Dr Amy Lingard - who recently passed her Fellowships in Feline medicine along with Dr. Carolyn O'Brien, another feline specialist. Richard's interests are squarely in general feline practice and his particular interest is geriatric patient management. Critical to this is feline musculoskeletal pain and osteoarthritis and its recognition and safe and effective management. He regularly presents lectures based on these interests and has recently presented an abstract at the ECVIM regarding the long-term use of NSAID's in cats.

"Feline Osteoarthritis"
Feline osteoarthritis and chronic musculoskeletal pain has always had a poor rate of recognition - both by owners and Veterinarians. Key to this has been the lack of evidence to the safety and efficacy of therapeutics in managing feline patients suffering from chronic pain. This is especially problematic when faced with geriatric patients suffering intercurrent disease. This presentation will review the prevalence of feline arthritis, how to improve recognition of chronic pain and then review modalities of successful and safe management of these patients.

"Feline Diabetes - Where are we today?"

Where are we today with feline diabetes? With the advent of long acting synthetic insulins and a deeper understanding of the pathophysiology underpinning feline diabetes, offering clients an expectation of achieving rapid remission is a realistic goal in many cases. Richard has had the benefit of using long acting insulins such as Glargine for over 8 years now and will share his clinical application of glargine and feline diabetes within general practice
