Webinar: C-reactive protein and other acute phase proteins in small animal practice. What is the evidence?

Watch our free of charge webinar on Acute Phase Proteins in Small Animal Canine Practice, presented by Dr. Lise Nikolic Nielsen. This webinar aims to discuss the pathophysiological origin of acute phase proteins and their attachment to other inflammatory markers. We’ll focus on the evidence from literature and clinical case studies where CRP, and other major acute phase proteins, have been proven (or not proven) of worth in dogs.

Duration: 60 min

Course: An introduction to canine C-reactive protein (CRP)

Discover Canine C-reactive protein (CRP) and learn how it can be used to identify and monitor systemic inflammation in dogs.

Duration: 15 min

Haematology

Webinars & courses for haematology

Course: The IDEXX guide to haematology

This three-part course will help veterinary professionals gain the basic knowledge they need to understand and interpret small-animal haematology results, including using an automated haematology analyser and performing a confirmatory blood film.

Module 1: An introduction to hematology and the red blood cell

Module 2: The white blood cells

Module 3: Platelets and the blood film evaluation

Webinar: Reticulocyte count: Why they are more important than just classifying anemia 

Watch our free of charge webinar presented by Dr. Dennis DeNicola on the ways reticulocyte count is estimated. In this webinar, we will review how the absolute reticulocyte count measures bone marrow response to demand for red blood cells. The quantity and quality of the reticulocyte provides insight into relatively common diseases with or without anemia. Case material will be used as a foundation for discussion on why reticulocyte count.

Duration: 60 min

Course: Dot Plot case studies for the ProCyte Dx Haematology Analyser

The Dot Plot Case Book is an online training course for the ProCyte Dx Haematology Analyser. Included are cases that teach key dot plot patterns, each with important clinical implications.

Duration: 60 min
IDEXX Reticulocytes webinar

Webinar: I need reticulocytes, please! 

In this webinar, we will review the function of the reticulocyte count in the diagnosis and classification of anemia. While MCV, MCHC and RDW parameters are often used in the classification of anemia, we will discuss why the reticulocyte count is the only way to accurately classify anemia. We will review actual clinical cases and discuss how the reticulocyte count played an instrumental role in the final diagnosis.

Duration: 60 min

Treatment options and management goals for cats with concurrent chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hyperthyroidism will be emphasized.

Duration: 60 min

Webinar: Increased SDMA - What Now?

This webinar will review SDMA as a biomarker of GFR and the differentials that cause an increase in SDMA. Graham will address how SDMA can add value to your existing diagnostic workup for renal disease. Learn how to interpret a mildly increased SDMA, particularly when creatinine concentration is within normal limits.
