Just FYI, the session below is taking place this afternoon at the American Animal Hospital Association annual convention:

Neurological Diseases of Young Cats and Dogs
Simon Platt, BVMS, MRCVS, DACVIM
Thursday, March 15, 2012 from 2:40pm-3:30pm

Young cats and dogs can be affected by infectious, congenital anomalies, metabolic dysfunctions, and degenerative diseases. This lecture will review these conditions with respect to their clinical presentations and discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Specific time will be allotted to the discussion of Chiari like malformation and syringomyelia in the dog as this is becoming a common problem for veterinarians in practice to deal with.

Let's hope that there are lots of GP vets attending. Some of you may recall that when I attended three different sessions at the AVMA conference almost two years ago (including one by Dewey and one by Shores), there was very sparse attendance compared with other sessions.

Dr. Platt is at the University of Georgia, and I met him when he did the MRI for my older boy for the Rupert's Fund project. He is a lovely man.
