Canine Medicine - 2008
Dr Graham Swinney
Centre for Veterinary Education
At the Canine Medicine event held on Sunday November 9, 2008 at the Rydges Hotel in Port Macquarie NSW, presenter Graham Swinney covered a broad range of topics using an interactive and case-based approach. Graham illustrated how to get the most out of routine clinical pathology using both routine tests and useful but less routine ones; rational approaches to fevers that have an unknown cause in patients including tests for common and less common causes and how to deal with anaemia, regenerative and non-regenerative.
