Joining myself and Brian in our virtual studio we are delighted to have Dr Zoë Halfacree, who after many years with the soft tissue team at the RVC has moved to Davies Veterinary Specialists. We have spoken to Zoë previously on the podcast about a variety of subjects, though her passion now has centred on veterinary sustainability. We talk to Zoë about what this is, why and how we can get involved and why we should start now.  We hope that you enjoy.

Joining myself and Brian in our virtual studio we are delighted to have Associate Professor Karla Lee, who is the head of our soft tissue surgery team here at the RVC.

Joining myself and Brian down the end of the technology wire in our virtual studio we are delighted to have Professor of Small Animal Surgery Vicky Lipscomb, who is our Clinical Director of the RVC’s small animal university teaching hospital (the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals). Vicky spoke to Shailen back in podcast 16 (https://www.rvc.ac.uk/small-animal-referrals/news-events/clinical-podcasts/16-portosystemic-shunts) and we thought it was about time to catch up with Vicky about what we have learnt in the last 6 years on how we manage our PSS patients and what questions we are now asking. It you want to listen back to the explanation of what PSS are and the pathophysiology and how to diagnose them please listen back to podcast 16. We hope that you enjoy.

Joining Brian and myself remotely we are delighted to have Rosie Allister, manager of the vetlife helpline. We had planned to catch up following her completing the London Marathon this year and speaking to our students, however she recorded a lecture for our students this year as we all come to terms with the new normal. We speak about how things have been going with vetlife and have there been any noticeable trends for callers with the current pandemic and lockdown. We also speak about her PhD, now that she can tell us more. Lots of great points and food for thought for our profession not only in these current times though beyond.

We are delighted today to have Ashley Hartley joining Bri and myself in the studio. Ashley is a staff clinician in internal medicine here at the RVC. Although she’d really like to talk about Trypanosoma cruzi infections we thought we’d speak about gallbladder mucoceles instead.  Ashley is passionate about all things to do with internal medicine, in particular infectious diseases, and we are grateful for her coming into the studio to share her thoughts today. We hope that you enjoy.

Matt has a passion about understanding patient safety and errors and has also co-authored a book on that (Errors in Veterinary Anaesthesia with John Ludders).

For the final podcast of the year, we have managed to have a few consecutive ones, hopefully a good omen for the New Year. We are delighted to have Professor Ken Smith, Head of the Department of Pathobiology and Population Sciences here at the RVC. He is Professor of companion animal pathology and could speak about a great many things from Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease to theatre. Though we thought we’d ask Ken more about what anatomical pathologists do for us, and also how we can help them in achieving that. We hope that you enjoy and Happy New Year.     Some articles of interest: https://www.rvc.ac.uk/Media/Default/Pathology%20and%20Diagnostic%20Laboratories/Documents/rvc-labs-services-pricelist-2020.pdf https://www.rcpath.org/discover-pathology/careers-in-pathology/careers-in-medicine/become-a-veterinary-pathologist.html https://www.msdvetmanual.com/clinical-pathology-and-procedures/collection-and-submission-of-laboratory-samples/collection-and-submission-of-laboratory-samples-from-animals http://apha.defra.gov.uk/External_OV_Instructions/Essential_Skills_for_Official_Veterinarians/Notifiable_Diseases/index.htm http://apha.defra.gov.uk/apha-scientific/services/lab/index.htm If you have any comments about this podcast, plese get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

It is that time of the year when many people are winding down for the holidays though often in our professional team the work not only continues though often gets busier. Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are joined by Ruth Serlin a lecturer here at the RVC in Veterinary Professionalism. We take a windy road in our discussion about looking after yourself and your team during this time. We also discuss an approach to euthanasia, pet bereavement and certain aspects of communication. There are certainly a few sensitive topics in this podcast, though something that all our veterinary teams have to manage daily. However, if you are struggling at this time of year, or any time of year please contact Vetlife, the Samaritans or other charity organisation helplines. We hope that you manage to have some down time during this holiday period and are looking forward to the New Year. Happy holidays, look after yourself and each other.

We are coming to the end of another year and well today other events happened in the UK. Anyway regardless of that we have been trying to get Associate Professor of Veterinary Dermatology Anette Loeffler into the studio for a while now, she was a little short of time though has promised to come back again next year. Luckily Brian was on hand to sort out the audio. We discussed what it means if you come up against MRSP – methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius. Enjoy.

Another year has passed by and as we close on 2019 Brian and I are joined by a previous RVC graduate Dave Beeston. We find out what Dave’s been up to in the last year and he’s certainly easier to get back into the studio. He hasn’t started his own podcast yet, though he has been on other podcasts (yes, I know, I couldn’t believe it either). We’ll see if we can continue doing this for a couple more years, we certainly need to get more podcasts out in 2020. Dave will be back writing his column in the Vet Times in the new year. We hope that you enjoy.  https://www.vettimes.co.uk/articles/david-beeston/ If you are interested in our small animal, or any internship then please follow this link: https://www.rvc.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/internships/small-animal If you have any comments about this podcast, plese get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

Today joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have Ludovic Pelligand, Associate Professor of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Clinical Pharmacology here at the RVC. We have tried to get him in the studio for a while and delighted that he found time in his busy schedule to talk to us about his experience with treating nausea and vomiting in dogs. We will get him back on shortly! Enjoy.

Today joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have Professor Dan Chan, our Head of Department here at the RVC. We could talk to him about so many things, though he has recently been involved in the Consensus on the Rational Use of Antithrombotics in Veterinary Critical Care (CURATIVE) and we thought that we’d have a chat with him about that. Enjoy. The whole Consensus is available in a Special Issue in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care open access here; https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/toc/14764431/2019/29/1 If you have any comments about this podcast, please get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

Today joining Brian and myself in the studio we have Joe Fenn one of our outstanding lecturers here in neurology and neurosurgery. We are discussing the topic of meningoencephalitis of unknown origin (MUO). As Joe explains this has also been known as Meningitis of unknown aetiology, or etiology depending on what side of the pond you are and incorporates necrotising meningoencephalitis (NME) and granulomatous meningoencephalitis (GME). Joe speaks about clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment. Enjoy.

What a treat we have for you today, joined in the studio by Elsa Beltran one of our fabulous lecturers in small animal neurology and neurosurgery here at the RVC. She talks about approach to anisocoria. You can tell that she is passionate about this subject and knows it inside out. Brian kept the levels right and I kept quiet. We hope that you enjoy.   If you have any comments about this podcast, please get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

We’re back, thanks to the one listener who asked where we were, I would like to say on a cruise, though in reality that wasn’t the case. Anyhow we are in the studio, with Brian and joined by Aarti Kathrani one of our senior lecturers here in Internal Medicine. Aarti has a particular interest in GI diseases, so we thought that we’d ask her for her approach to manage dogs and cats with diarrhoea. Having discussed this, there are certainly more topics that we would like to ask her in the future.

Joining myself in the studio we are delighted to have Mary de Las Casas, a PDP Post Graduate Dean working for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (the UK regulatory body of the veterinary profession), talking about the PDP. A fitting time since most veterinary schools in the UK have finished their final examinations (well done) and this is the UK’s version of helping new veterinary graduates transition into their professional life and reflect on their practice. We appreciate that it is a national topic, though it does raise the question about post graduate education and where we are headed as a profession, which is applicable to all. We hope that you enjoy.  Some pages of interest: https://www.rcvs.org.uk/home/ https://www.rcvs.org.uk/lifelong-learning/professional-development-phase-pdp/ If you have any comments about this podcast, please get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have Professor Holger Volk, guru of neurology and neurosurgery, though internationally renowned for his (and his teams) work on epilepsy.   Holger spoke to Shailen in the first RVC clinical podcast and being sentimental we thought we’d ask him back for our hundredth podcast. A lot has happened in the last 6 years and we thought that we’d catch up with what has changed. We hope that you enjoy.

Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have the fabulous Matthew Pead, senior lecturer in small animal orthopaedics here at the RVC. Matthew has been in and around the RVC for over 30 years and can speak eloquently on a variety of topics from opera and fine art to educational theory. We thought we should narrow it down to Elbow dysplasia. Matthew bought in his dog, Jack, who has elbow dysplasia and we have attached a short video of Matthew performing a forelimb physical exam. It has taken us 99 podcasts to include another medium. We hope that you enjoy.

Joining myself in the studio we are delighted to have Vicki Baldrey, one of fabulous lectures here in all things exotic at the RVC. Vicki is an avian specialist so we thought that we’d talk to her about an approach to managing a psittacine that is presented to you. We hope that you enjoy. https://www.rvc.ac.uk/about/our-people/vicki-baldrey some review papers: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20682428 https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/veterinary-clinics-of-north-america-exotic-animal-practice/vol/19/issue/2 If you have any comments about this podcast, please get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.

Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are delighted to have Rosie Allistair, manager of the vetlife helpline. She has come to us following completing the London Marathon the previous day and is going to talk to our final year students about vetlife, so we thought that we’d ask her to talk about it on the pod. Rosie is also near completion of her PhD at the University of Edinburgh fooling a cohort of veterinary students enter the profession. We hope that you enjoy. https://www.vetlife.org.uk If you have any comments about this podcast, please get in touch: email dbarfield@rvc.ac.uk; tweet @dombarfield.
