January 26-29, 2020
Enjoy the slopes of Vail while learning from the one of the most experienced – yet freshest! – voices in veterinary oncology. Dr. Greg Ogilvie brings the depth of an expert with board-certifications in multiple disciplines. But he approaches the topic of oncology in a down-to-earth manner that is accessible to general practitioners, and practical on a day-to-day basis. He’ll address the cancers seen most commonly in practice: Feline and canine lymphoma, anal gland adenocarcinomas, osteosarcoma, and injection site carcinomas. You will learn cutting edge therapies for mast-cell tumors, which affect many of our most beloved patients. The educational sessions will address your clinical challenges, while giving you nuanced tools to increase your patients’ comfort along the way. Last, but not least, you will learn some strategies to better care for yourself, as you support others in facing a disease that is fraught with fear and strong emotions. When it comes to cancer, Dr. Ogilvie’s message is that the capacity to cure is often in your hands as a general practitioner – and that the compassion to care for your patients and their families always is.
