The next Veterinary Surgery Podcast is out and now downloadable. We will be talking about great resources for COVID-19 information including the WSAVA websites: https://wsava.org/news/highlighted-news/the-new-coronavirus-and-companion-animals-advice-for-wsava-members/ and Clinician’s Brief: https://www.cliniciansbrief.com/covid-19-updates. We also share some positive news about COVID-19 at the end of the podcast.
On my last trip (for a while), I had the pleasure to do a reconstruction lab for E-Vet, located in Haderslev, Denmark. We had 2 days of immersive reconstructive surgery in dogs and cats with a wonderful group of veterinarians. I will be discussing this course in the upcoming podcasts and talk about tension relieving techniques here.
Also, we have an interview with Dr. Jonas Bylin, a Swedish surgeon currently in the UK about his passion for surgery. Did you know one of his favorite things to do is TPLO’s? I tend to call them the spays of orthopedics b ut he really enjoys doing them. Jonas gives great insights about what it is to be a general surgeon in a busy practice.
Last but nor least we are discussing this article: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25827973 Third eyelid gland neoplasms of dogs and cats: a retrospective histopathologic study of 145 cases. Vet Ophthalmol. 2016 Mar;19(2):138-43. doi: 10.1111/vop.12273. Adenocarcinoma is the most common tumor of the third eyelid and although not very common in dogs and rare in cats, there is a an easy cure by taking out the third eyelid.
