Sue Ettinger: What to do with lumps and bumps. The new guidelines for dogs and cats.
“See Something, Do Something” (SSDS) is Dr Sue’s cancer awareness program for lumps and bumps in dogs and cats. SSDS provides guidelines for pet owners and veterinarians for evaluating superficial masses in dogs and cats. These guidelines will increase client awareness and promote early cancer detection and diagnosis. No one can look at a mass or feel a mass and know if it is benign or malignant. The good news is we can make a difference in our patients and cure most skin and subcutaneous tumors if we find them early and when they are small.

1100 - 1145

Sue Ettinger: The ABC of early cancer detection: aspirates, biopsies and cytology.
Most skin and subcutaneous tumors can be cured with surgery alone if diagnosed early when small.  See Something, Do Something. Why Wait? Aspirate® is a cancer awareness program to help to identify and diagnose masses with aspirates and biopsies when they are more treatable. We will cover practical cytology tips for getting diagnostic aspirates, looking at slides in-house, and reviewing cytology reports. We will also discuss when to biopsy a mass instead of aspirates.

Sue Ettinger: Canine lymphoma on a budget, which tests to recommend, practical approach.
Once you’ve confirmed the diagnosis of lymphoma, the diagnostic and chemotherapy options can be budget busting for many clients. Which tests and protocols do we recommend? What do you tell the owners? This lecture will give a practical approach to diagnostic and treatment options at various price points. We will cover the numbers and prognoses you need to know when you talk the owner about the options. We will also discuss new therapies available and how to use steroids when treatment is declined.

Metronomic chemotherapy – aka low dose oral chemotherapy - is a newer way of administering old chemotherapy drugs but targets tumor cells in a completely different way than conventional chemotherapy. In this case-based lecture, we will discuss all you need to know about this lower dose, lower risk and often lower cost approach.  We will also discuss which cases you should consider it, including cases with advanced metastatic disease
