Endocrinology is another of the popular subjects in Dr. Blount's "Practical" Seminar Series. In the "Practical" Endocrinology Seminar you'll gather a wealth of information you can put to use immediately in your clinic, plus satisfy your total requirement of 17 CE Hours for 2017.

This Seminar will cover the Endocrinology topics most commonly seen in small animal practice such as Addison's Disease, Cushing's Syndrome, Diabetes Mellitus and Insipidus, Thyroid and Calcium disorders, Growth Hormone disorders, and Insulinoma. As these hormonal diseases present numerous health care challenges, we'll focus on diagnosis and treatment in the trenches. For example, you'll get answers to the following questions and many more:

  • Is ACTH stim or Low Dose Dex better for diagnosing Hyperadrenocorticism? Endogenous ACTH? Baseline Cortisol? Urine cortisol:creatinine?
  • How do you diagnose and treat Hypercalcemia? When is it clinically significant?
  • When is it safe and appropriate to do a water deprivation test?
  • Can Hypothyroidism problems as extreme as paralysis, heart disease and aggressive behavior?
  • What is the best way to treat the Hyperthyroid cat?
  • Which insulin is best for dogs and cats? How do you keep the Diabetic Ketoacidotic patient alive long enough for the insulin to work?
  • Is treating Cushings Disease a productive exercise? What is the best treatment?

Comments from attendees of this seminar:

I attended Dr. Blount's Practical Endocrinology seminar this past weekend in Lufkin, and have to say it was one of the better CE meetings I have attended. Even though I have difficulty sitting through 17 hours, she made it interesting and relevant. She even had mercy on us and gave us ten minute breaks every hour. Highly recommended.
--Brad Moyer, DVM - Animal Health Center of Lampasas

Really enjoyed your seminar today. ...I'm an old doc ('73) but certainly learned some new "tricks" today and look forward to learning more tomorrow. ...Thanks for all you do and to your commitment to advancing the knowledge and skills of practicing docs like me ... even us old guys! Next day... It was one of the most informative, practical and well organized seminars I have attended. I have read with great interest her thoughts, comments and recommendations on a variety of clinical questions / cases presented to the TexasVets Yahoo! Group over that last several years but had never had the pleasure of attending any of her presentations. Like Dr Moyer, I would highly recommend it.
