Panel Discussion: Update On Liver Disease
VetPD - Veterinary Professional Development
Date: Tuesday 20th June, 2023 - Tuesday 20th June, 2023
Start time: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Duration: 3 hour(s)
The identification of several hepatotropic viruses in equine blood and liver tissue in recent years has broadened our differential diagnosis for horses with abnormal liver function tests but also raises questions about how to interpret viral diagnostics, and how they might fit in to the evaluation of individuals with suspected liver disease. Many adults and the occasional foal with liver disease remain challenging to identify on initial presentation purely on the basis of history and physical examination and so blood work, ultrasound and biopsy are recommended for better characterization of disease severity and to guide treatment.
The panel of internationally renowned experts from Europe and the US will discuss their approach to liver disease in both individuals and groups of horses, with time given to the emerging relevance of viral etiologies as well as a discussion about the syndrome of seasonal hepatitis seen in the Northern and Mid-Western US over the last 2 winters. Time will be provided for questions from attendees that can be forwarded before, or during, the discussion.
* Participants are encouraged to send in questions to [email protected] prior to the panel discussion. There will also be the opportunity to raise questions during the discussion.
