The New Standard of Care for the Diagnosis, Treatment, and Management of Kidney Disease for Improved and Longer Lives | Rick Hartigan, DVM
During this presentation, participants will learn why the IDEXX SDMA® Test is a more reliable indicator of kidney function than traditional diagnostics and that clinical information and diagnostic results need to be evaluated together to determine if acute or active kidney injury (AKI) or chronic kidney disease (CKD) is present. Additionally, Dr. Hartigan will review what next steps should be taken when kidney disease is diagnosed, the International Renal Interest Society (IRIS) CKD guidelines and will highlight the benefits of diagnosing kidney disease earlier and more reliably.

Canine Heartworm Disease and a New Approach in Prevention | Melina Boston, DVM
During this event, Dr. Boston will first focus on the incidence of canine heartworm disease in Delaware and how it has continued to rise despite the availability of many heartworm prophylactic medications.  We will review the heartworm lifecycle and explain common misperceptions of how monthly heartworm preventatives work.  While there is an approved treatment for adult heartworms, it is important to remember the severity of the disease, even before an antigen test becomes positive and the risk of severe complications with melarsamine treatment.  Studies evaluating owner compliance with monthly oral preventatives demonstrate the need for a product that does not rely on the owner remembering to dose the patient at home.  Finally, we will review an injectable heartworm preventative medication which provides continuous protection for 12 months, thus removing owner compliance from the equation.
