    BVSc DSAM Cert VC MRI CBiol FRSB FRCVS, RCVS-Recognised Specialist in Small Animal Medicine (Internal Medicine), Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service Ltd

    Jon graduated from University of Bristol in 1996 and after two years in mixed small and farm animal practice returned to Bristol to complete a Residency in Small Animal Medicine. In 2001 he established the Internal Medicine service at Willows Referral Service before moving to the Animal Health Trust, Newmarket in 2004 becoming Head of Internal Medicine and moving to University of Bristol in 2007 as Clinical Fellow / Lecturer in Cardiothoracic Medicine. In 2008 he moved to Dick White Referrals as Specialist in Internal Medicine and Head of Cardiology remaining for 13 years during which growth of the practice to a staff of 370 personnel was seen. In 2001 Jon returned to Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service as Clinical Director in one of the UK’s leading small animal hospitals.
    Jon is an RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Medicine, awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2018 for ‘Meritorious Contribution to Clinical Practice’ and was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology the same year. He is a Chartered Biologist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, author of the book ‘Canine Internal Medicine: What’s your diagnosis?’ and previous Chief Examiner for the RCVS in Certificate and Diploma in Small Animal Medicine.
    Jon’s clinical work is divided between Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Interventional Radiology (a subject in which he has been in the vanguard of Specialists in the UK) and particular interests are in the areas of interventional endoscopy and vascular / cardiac interventions, respiratory medicine, diagnostic investigations and in teaching of clinical reasoning, judgement and cognitive error.

    • 09:00 - 09:40 Clinical approach and laboratory assessment of urinary tract disorders. Foredragssponsor LABOKLIN
      The aim of this session is to combine medical problem-solving approach to common urinary tract disorders with salient clinical pathology findings and their interpretation. Emphasising serum biochemical analysis and urinalysis, interpreted in context of the problem-solving approach (‘what is the problem?’, ‘where is the problem?’), delegates will review common clinical scenarios.
      14:45 - 15:25 Medical approach to feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). Foredragssponsor LABOKLIN
      FLUTD is a complex syndrome, commonly encountered in feline medical practice. This lecture will review what is known about the pathophysiology of this condition, approaches to management, structured contingency planning and decision-making in recurrent cases. Use of indwelling urinary catheters, medical approaches to urethrospasm and evidence-base for common medical approaches will be discussed.
    • 09:50 - 10:30 Approach to haematuria, pigmenturia
      Passage of discoloured urine is a common presenting problem in small animal practice with numerous causes including disorders of the lower urinary tract, the upper urinary tract, the urogenital system and as a local manifestation of generalised bleeding tendencies. In this session we will describe a structured approach to the investigation and diagnosis of common causes of pigmenturia in small animals.
      13:50 - 14:30 Acute kidney injury
      Topics to be included in this session on approach and management of acute kidney injury are: what are the common causes of acute kidney injury and what differential diagnoses of acute kidney injury are there? How do we recognise AKI occurring, how do we stage AKI and what should initial management approaches be? What is the recovery potential from AKI and what prognosis can be given?
      15:00 - 15:40 Feline ureteral obstruction

      Feline upper urinary tract obstruction is an increasingly recognised phenomenon in small animal practice with most obstructions being causes by calcium oxalate ureteroliths, and clinical signs often developing only when bilateral obstruction is seen or where a previously obstructed kidney is accompanied by a further contralateral obstruction. In this session medical, surgical and interventional options for management of this most challenging condition will be discussed. An explanation of the principles of ureteral bypass will be given.

      15:50 - 16:30 Case examples - mainly lower urinary tract trauma, neoplasia

      In this session the principles described in previous lectures will be discussed in relation to a number of case examples, drawing together medical, surgical and interventional management of urinary tract disorders (medical and surgical).
