With a limited insight still into this idiopathic condition, these lesions are likely to present as wound or dermatology cases in practice, which can rapidly develop into fatalities in our patients.
Read our blog at www.vetwoundlibrary.com to help you to identify this rare condition if presented as a wound case.
You can also help your practice to be proactive in raising awareness to owners by providing educational hand outs or displaying posters - an example of which can be downloaded within the link.
Earlier this year we asked you
"What is your go to method for immobilising a limb?"
and here is what you said:
Moving into 2018 we intend on working closely with some great veterinary companies to look at what exactly is "best practice" when it comes to immobilisation, and whether we can follow in the foot steps of Human Medicine to try to raise standards, improve outcomes and minimise complications.
Dressing wounds in exotics
We have had some great success managing wounds in these little guys recently, which just goes to show that with a bit of creative thinking and perseverance, it is possible to treat their wounds in a similar fashion to our larger furry friends.
Tip - It is of course important to remember that we may need to think outside the box in order to allow these small furries to exhibit their normal behavior.
If you would like any hints or tips on managing your patient don't forget that we always have experts on hand to advise on cases, whether it be for advice on product choice, dressing application or wound closure - we are here to help.
We had a fantastic time at our first official Wound Extravaganza Conference in Glasgow last month and learnt so much from so many great speakers and exhibitors. It was such a fantastic opportunity for so many like-minded vets and nurses to discuss wound management more in depth than ever before within the veterinary industry, and to learn new methods and techniques.
If you attended the conference, CPD certificates will be winging their way to you by email over the next few days and lecture notes and videos are undergoing a final edit and will be live on the website hopefully by the end of the month.
Thank you to all who attended and we would love to do it all over again next year!
