“It was a great conference! People are happy to be back, meet and learn together. You can see the smiles under their masks!”
“At a time when people were separated from family and friends last year, pets were great company and comfort. As the adoption of cats, dogs and exotic animals such as birds and reptiles reached record levels, the need for veterinary care has also increased, “said Gene O’Neill, NAVC managing director. “At VMX, veterinarians learn the latest diagnostic and treatment methods so that they can provide the best possible care for animals of all kinds.
“It was a great conference! People like to be back, meet and learn together. You can see the smiles under their masks! And those who participated virtually were able to interact with colleagues and from the world’s most renowned experts in veterinary medicine, “added O’Neill.
VMX is the world’s largest and most comprehensive veterinary conference and exhibition, where veterinary professionals learn about the latest advances in veterinary medicine every year. Click the link for the VMX 2021 Highlights B-Roll:
Help dogs age better, mentally and physically. Up to 50% of dogs injure both knees, but not all of them require surgery. As part of her presentation on how to help dogs stay agile and active as they age, Dr. Clara Goha conducted a live orthopedic exam to help veterinarians assess dogs and decide when they might need surgery or alternative treatments. DR. Valarie Tynes about the signs of dog dementia and new ways to slow its progression. She also talked about separation anxiety and how to deal with it when people go back to work.
Reversing diabetes in cats. DR. Audrey Cook presents breakthrough options in the treatment and management of feline diabetes. These advances can put an end to daily insulin injections and reduce the stress and demands placed on pet parents caring for diabetic cats.
New technologies and processes save aquatic animals. Aquatic and zoo veterinarians shared their knowledge from everyday experiences, be it an emergency operation on a penguin or a unique brain operation on a marine mammal, a northern fur seal. DR. Jen flower and dr. Three Clarke shared new technology, including portable ultrasound machines the size of an iPad to examine aquatic animals, and new diagnostic tools that examine tiny nerve vessels never seen before.
VMX 2021 comprised more than 600 training sessions and hands-on workshops at the live event in Orlando and over 300 virtual and on-demand sessions that will be available across September 3, 2021.
