TVMA Annual Conference and Expo


8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. • Hilton Hotel • College Station

Small Ruminant Medicine for the Mixed Practitioner
Allen Roussel, DVM, DACVIM (Dept. Head, Large Animal Clinical Services/TAMU-CVM)

Dr. Roussel will present an update on some of the more important and more common disease of small ruminants likely to be encountered even by practitioners who don't see a large number of small ruminants. The attendee will learn how to recognize, treat and control, and diseases of sheep and goats.
CE Credits: 2.5

8 a.m. to 12 p.m. • TAMU-CVM

Gastrointestinal Nematodes Infecting American Cattle - Recent Changes and the Effect on Future Control Programs

Louis Gasbarre, PhD (Gasbarre Consulting, Buffalo, Wyoming)
The development of strategic parasite control programs utilizing highly effective anthelmintics has resulted in previously unseen levels of gastrointestinal nematode control and subsequent animal productivity. The effectiveness of these programs has allowed producers to alter production systems without the worry of incurring economic loss caused by the parasites. Over the past several years we have begun to see that the very high effectiveness of these programs in reducing parasites levels has also been very effective in selecting for drug resistant variants. This selection for drug-resistance has dramatically changed the composition and biology of the nematodes infecting American cattle, and is reducing the tools we have to control the parasites. As we move forward we need to protect the drugs that are currently in use as it is unlikely that new drugs will be available in the near future. Producers have come to expect very high levels of parasite control, and as such it will be difficult to reduce the selective pressure on the parasites. In this talk we will discuss the factors that influence parasite transmission, the effect of GI nematodes on productivity, how best to estimate parasite levels in a herd, the changing parasite fauna in American cattle and what this means for productivity, and what management decisions will maximize production while minimizing selection for drug resistance.

Allen Roussel, DVM, DACVIM (Dept. Head, Large Animal Clinical Services/TAMU-CVM)

Food Animal: Establishing a Diagnosis-Physical Examination and Laboratory Evaluation
The first step in treating an animal is establishing a diagnosis. In this session, the attendee will learn how to perform a thorough physical examination, how to select laboratory tests based on history and physical examination and how to interpret those test along with the history and physical examination findings to establish a diagnosis.

CE Credits: 4


8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. • TAMU-CVM

Normand G. Ducharme, DMV, MSc (College of Vet. Medicine/ Cornell University)

  • Non-RLN Laryngeal Collapse
  • RLN Laryngeal Collapse
  • Nasophyarygneal Collapse
  • Etiopathology, Diagnosis and Treatment of Dorsal Displacement of the Soft Palate

  • CE Credits: 4

Dr. Ducharme graduated from Montreal University in 1979.  He received his DVM from the University of Montreal and then completed an internship in Large Animal Surgery at Cornell. He also received a master’s degree in Large Animal Surgery from the University of Guelph where he was on faculty from 1982 to 1986 (Dr. Frank Milne – whom this lecture is named after - was one of the surgeons at the University of Guelph).  Dr. Ducharme became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in February 1985 and joined the faculty at Cornell University in 1986. 

Dr. Ducharme’s research matches his clinical interests: sports medicine with an emphasis on equine upper respiratory airway physiology at exercise. This encompasses flow and pressure mechanics, neuromuscular assessment of the neural control of airway patency, characterization of health status and disease (respiratory), and their influence on modifying or developing new surgical diagnosis and treatments. His collaborators and he have co-trained three post docs, 10 PhDs, eight Master’s degree students, and 32 surgery residents as well as mentored many pre-DVM and DVM students.
