BSAVA releases new regurgitation webinar
The webinar is presented by Aarti Kathrani, editor of the third edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology.

CPD resource available now on BSAVA Library.

The BSAVA has uploaded a new webinar on regurgitation to its webinar library, which complements the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology, published in 2019.

The new webinar focuses on the approach, diagnosis and treatment of regurgitation in dogs and cats. Specifically, it looks at how to differentiate between regurgitation and vomiting, as well as the ways in which some diseases can cause inflammation, obstruction or dysmotility of the oesophagus; often resulting in regurgitation.

It is presented by Aarti Kathrani, a senior lecturer in small animal internal medicine and editor of the third edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology.

Ms Kathrani  said: “The webinar is designed to help general practitioners differentiate between regurgitation and vomiting, as well as provide a comprehensive review of the different causes of regurgitation and the diagnostic approach to this.

“Treatment is also discussed for this condition. We hope the webinar provides a useful guide to help diagnose and manage these cases in general practice.”

The regurgitation lecture is available for free on the BSAVA Webinar Library here.

The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology, which complements the new webinar, is divided into four main sections: Diagnostic procedures and techniques, diagnostic approaches to problems, patient management and diseases of specific systems or organs.

The manual can be purchased here.

Vets asked to opt-in to Scottish SPCA fostering programme

News Story 1
 The Scottish SPCA is encouraging veterinary practices to opt into its new fostering programme, by agreeing to register foster animals when approached by one of the foster carers.

The programme goes live in August 2021, and will help to rehabilitate animals under the Scottish SPCA's care until they are able to be properly re-homed. The programme will help the animals to receive care and attention in a stable and happy home environment, as some animals do not cope with a rescue and re-homing centre environment as well as others.

Specific information for veterinary practices on the new programme can be found at
