Some Photos of  our weekend July 3rd  at the Australian Vet Science Conference on the Gold Coast. Photo 1: Those of you who know anything about Behaviour, Emotional Health and the Fear-Free Program would be well acquainted with eminent USA Pet Behaviourist Dr Gary Landsberg DVM, DACVB, DECAWBM who was kind enough to answer one-on-one concerns from me that I had on some pet behavioural health issues. Dr Gary also generously posed for a photo with myself and the wonderful Dr Gretta -another speaker/different topic at Science Week. Dr Gretta shared some valuable personal experience with me on the special anaesthetic needs of pets on behavioural medications: a new and evolving field if the lectures at Vet Science week were anything to go by.!
Photos 2 & 3 show Petra Dr Petra Bizikova MVDr, PhD, DipECVD, DipACVD, from North Carolina who is working at the cutting edge of immune-dysfunction skin diseases. It was also great to have Dr Petra lecturer on the presentations of food allergy recognised in dogs and cats- for me, those lectures validated our clinic’s long-standing beliefs and approaches to food allergy in cats and dogs.
