When our patients present with critical illnesses, they may not give us time to consult VIN or even a textbook, so our next QDVA talk is designed as a refresher on common veterinary emergencies.
Dr. Jennifer Ogeer has an alphabet soup of emergency medicine prepared for the meeting on Wednesday, November 12th when she presents “A Practical Approach to Common Emergencies – DKA, FUO, CPA, HBC.” The expanded version reads: Diabetic Ketoacidosis, Feline Urinary Obstruction, Cardiopulmonary Arrest and Hit-By-Car cases. You can expect a great review of current recommendations on fluid therapy, resuscitation techniques, triage protocols and other urgent care issues.
With a DVM and MSc from the Ontario Veterinary College, Dr. Ogeer has gained years of experience in the field of emergency medicine both in practice and academia. She has been employed as an emergency clinician with VCA (Veterinary Centers of America) in Pennsylvania and Clinical Assistant Professor in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care at Texas A and M University. At the University of Saskatchewan Western College of Veterinary Medicine she was Director of Emergency and Critical Care Services and an Associate Professor until 2012. She also found time to obtain her MBA, establish a management consulting firm, Veterinary Medical Solutions, and launch a furniture business in China.
Dr. Ogeer has extensive industry experience working as a consultant for Zoetis (formerly Pfizer) and Idexx Laboratories. She is currently the interim Professional Services Veterinarian for Novartis Animal Health Canada Inc, covering central and portions of eastern Ontario.
Her special interests include traumatology, analgesia and coagulation disorders. Her research focus has been on nosocomial infections and antimicrobial resistance in the critically ill patient. As a business consultant she has a keen interest in strategy-based marketing and contract negotiations.
Generously sponsored by Idexx Laboratories, this dinner talk will be free to QDVA members and staff. The cost for non-member DVMs and staff is $60 per person. Please note that this is the first of our extended CE sessions for the year with an early-bird session covering extra material and case studies from 4 to 5:30 p.m. The presentation is divided into two sections so those who cannot attend until the usual start time of 6 p.m. will be able to follow the talk easily. Please indicate when registering if you will be attending the early session.
Attendance is limited to about 70 people. To be sure all members can be accommodated, some registration restrictions will apply. Each attending veterinarian can bring two lay staff. Please register by 5 p.m., Thursday, November 6th. If we still have room after the deadline, an email will be sent out inviting more staff members to attend.
The session will be held as usual at the Belleville Club. Dinner, catered by L’Auberge de France will be served at about 7 p.m.
