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 are being invited to enter a writing competition run by the Page Turner Awards for a chance to get their story published or even made into a film.

Dubbed the 'Rolls Royce' of writing awards, the Page Turner competition provides an opportunity for aspiring writers to submit unpublished fiction and non-fiction work to be read by a panel of influential players in the publishing industry.

A spokesperson said: 'Do you think of yourself as a magical healer, like Dr Dolittle. Or maybe you have a story to share about the times when, sadly, animals can't be treated, and pet owners reflect on those moments they took for granted."

Avian influenza confirmed in Lancashire

A case of highly pathogenic (HPAI H5N8) avian influenza has been confirmed in two captive peregrine falcons on a non-commercial, non-poultry premises near Skelmersdale, West Lancashire.

Following a risk assessment, APHA has declared that no disease control zones have been put in place surrounding this non-commercial, non-poultry premises.

Eighteen cases of HPAI H5N8 have now been identified in poultry and other captive birds in England. A housing order for poultry and captive birds introduced by Defra to control the spread of the disease expired on 31 March, although bird keepers in England are still required by law to comply with biosecurity measures.
