UVS Doctors Share Their Expertise with General Practice Veterinarians on 10/10/15
August 31st, 2015 | Posted in Veterinary Continuing Education
The specialists at UVS recognize that supporting animal health and wellness does not exist in a vacuum and welcome opportunities to share their knowledge. Veterinary specialists are considered to have two sets of clientele: 1. the pet owners who have been referred for specialty care and 2. the general practice veterinarians who have referred those clients for specialty care. The specialists at Upstate Veterinary Specialties in Latham are grateful for the trust of their veterinary colleagues.
An important goal of advanced training in a specialty field is the ability to share knowledge of ailments, diagnostic technologies and treatments with veterinary colleagues. To that goal, veterinary specialists often present lectures to veterinarian colleagues at conferences regionally and nationally. On October 10, 2015, four UVS specialists from a variety of fields will present talks at a day-long lecture event for fellow veterinarians. Each of the presenters have developed expertise through residency training and practice.
Cardiologist Dr. Aaron Wey will discuss advancements in the treatment of heart valve disease. Oncologist Dr. Jennifer Mahoney will give an overview of chemotherapy and will focus on collaboration with the patients’ family veterinarian. UVS’ two newest veterinarians, both alumnae of Cornell residency programs will present talks as well. Dr. Danielle Davignon, who recently joined the Internal Medicine department will discuss updates in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of common endocrine disorders in pets. Lastly, the newest member of the UVS Neurology service, Dr. Chelsie Estey will discuss epilepsy, seizure activity and treatment options.
