    Speaker til følgende sessioner
    • 11:10 - 12:00 Anatomy Oral cavity examination
      Oral cavity examination in small mammals is very important as differentiation between normal/physiological and pathological conditions is crucial in oral cavity disease diagnostics. The presentation will cover oral cavity anatomy in rabbits, oral cavity examination, oral cavity endoscopy, dental charting as well as equipment needed for optimal oral cavity evaluation. 
      13:15 - 14:00 Radiography and computed tomography in rabbits
      Radiography and computed tomography are important parts of the oral cavity/dental pathologies. The masterclass will be focused on radiographic anatomy, positioning, pathological findings, and computed tomography of the head in rabbits.
      14:15 - 15:00 Radiography and computed tomography in guinea pigs
      Radiography and computed tomography are important parts of the oral cavity/dental pathologies. The masterclass will be focused on radiographic anatomy, positioning, pathological findings, and computed tomography of the head in guinea pigs.
      15:45 - 16:30 Premolar and molar disease
      Dental-related diseases are very common in many small mammal species; herbivores (rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, degus), carnivores (ferrets), omnivores (rats), and insectivores (hedgehogs). The masterclass will be focused particularly on the treatment of premolar and molar disease as well intraoral soft tissues in selected small mammal species. Intraoral and extraoral extraction will be also presented. Supportive care and analgesia will be discussed.
      16:45 - 17:30 Dentistry in guinea pigs
      Oral cavity diseases are one of the most common health disorders in guinea pigs. The masterclass will focus on the diagnostics and medical and surgical treatment of selected oral cavity diseases – cheilitis, coronal elongation, macrodont teeth, and odontogenic abscess medical and surgical treatment in guinea pigs.
    • 09:00 - 09:40 Basic clinical procedures in small mammals
      This talk presents the principal diagnostic and treatment-related procedures that we need to know when approaching small mammal patients; handling, blood sampling, urinalysis and intravenous catheter placement included.
      09:50 - 10:30 Desexing of males
      Desexing of males is a routine surgical procedure. The presentation will cover different methods of orchidectomy in ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and sugar gliders. The pros and contras of each technique will be discussed. Step by step approach will be shown in educational videos and photographs.  
      11:00 - 11:40 Desexing of females
      Preventive desexing of females is a routine surgical procedure, however, in some rodent species, it can be challenging. Indications for surgery and preferably techniques for ovariectomy or ovariohysterectomy will be discussed with an emphasis on rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, and rats. Non-surgical techniques for “castration” will be presented as well. Step by step approach will be shown in educational videos and photographs.  
      14:45 - 15:25 GI tract surgeries in rabbits
      Gastrointestinal (GI) tract surgery in rabbits is commonly associated with life-threatening conditions, especially with GI tract intraluminal foreign bodies (duodenal/colonic obstruction, trichobezoars in the stomach), or inflammatory changes (appendicitis). Diagnostics (radiography, ultrasound) and medical and surgical approaches will be discussed, perioperative and postoperative care included. 
      15:35 - 16:15 Ear surgeries in rabbits and rodents
      The presentation will cover clinical symptoms, comprehensive workup, and surgical management of ear pinna, ear canal, and tympanic membrane diseases in rabbits, guinea pigs, and rats. Myringotomy, partial ear canal ablation, total ear canal ablation, and lateral bulla osteotomy are common surgical techniques used in cases of otitis media/interna. Step by step approach will be shown in educational videos and photographs.  
    • 09:00 - 09:40 Respiratory disease in rabbits. Foredragssponsor LABOKLIN
      Respiratory disorders are very common in rabbits; however, “simple” rhinitis can cause severe respiratory distress and patient collapse. Causes, diagnostics, and medical management of upper and lower respiratory tract disorders in rabbits will be presented, including endoscopic and computed tomography examinations.
      09:50 - 10:30 Endocrinopathies in rodents. Foredragssponsor LABOKLIN
      Guinea pigs, chinchillas, degus, rats, and hamsters are nowadays commonly presented to veterinary clinics with health disorders, which are primarily associated with the endocrine system. The presentation will cover diagnostics and treatment of diabetes mellitus in rabbits and rodents, adenohypophyseal adenoma in rats, hyperadrenocorticism in guinea pigs and hamsters, hyperthyroidism in guinea pigs, and fibrous osteodystrophy in guinea pigs.  
      13:50 - 14:30 Skin diseases in rabbits
      Skin disorders are a very common presentation of pet rabbits to the practitioner. The aetiology is the most common of viral, bacterial, mycotic, parasitic, or neoplastic origin. The presentation will be focused on a review of skin medical and surgical conditions, including pododermatitis.
      15:00 - 15:40 Urinary tract disorders
      Urinary tract disorders are commonly associated with stranguria, pain, and anorexia. The lecture will be focused on the diagnostics and medical management of urinary sludge in rabbits, interstitial nephritis in guinea pigs, and other urinary tract disorders in rabbits, rodents, and ferrets.
      15:50 - 16:30 Urinary tract surgeries
      Presentation “Urinary tract surgeries” continues with surgical approaches to the urinary tract, particularly to kidney (nephrotomy, nephrectomy), ureters (ureterotomy), urinary bladder (cystotomy, cystoscopy), and urethra (urethrotomy).
