Over the past decade, the epidemiology of Leishmania infection around the world has undergone significant changes. In this webinar we will assess how the increase in the number of autochthonous cases of canine leishmaniosis in non-endemic areas, as well as the description of new reservoirs in endemic areas, makes its control more complex.

Cushing's Syndrome in dogs is an extremely common disorder, first recognized and well described over 50 years ago. It is diagnosed in middle-aged and geriatric dogs of every breed and size by veterinarians practicing throughout the world...
Radiotherapy has become an integral therapeutic modality in small animal medicine, especially in the treatment of cancer. The Lecture from Dr. Juan Carlos Serra will provide a good understanding of the most common and used practices and therapies.
Appropriate management of dogs with lymphoma begins with a well-timed and accurate diagnosis, taking into account both tumor and patient characteristics.
Pretreatment clinical staging accomplishes several important goals: it determines the anatomic extent of lymphoma, allows an accurate prognosis to be given to the owners, and helps direct therapy. The knowledge of lymphoma extension makes it possible to accurately restage dogs at the end of therapy to document the response type. Finally, standardized methods for staging are essential to critically assess and compare different therapeutic strategies, as incomplete staging work up impedes the comparison of study results.
Leukemia is a heterogeneous group of lymphohematopoietic neoplastic diseases affecting cats and dogs with a relatively high frequency and generally showing non-specific clinical signs. A correct diagnosis of the different types of leukemia (Acute Lymphoid Leukemia, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) and the identification of putative prognostic factors are based on the use of different laboratory tests including hematology, cytology, bone marrow biopsy, flow cytometry/immunohistochemistry. A comprehensive interpretation of the laboratory results is mandatory to differentiate leukemia from leukemic lymphoma and other similar hematological diseases, accurately identify the type of leukemia, and adequately predict prognosis and tailor therapy.
Nephropathology is a unique specialization in anatomic pathology, and a complete set of analyses comprising LM, IF, and TEM should always be considered. When performing a renal biopsy, few criteria should be encountered. First, the biopsy should be considered a procedure to improve therapy, and the biopsy should be done safely. An expert and specialized neuropathologist should evaluate the tissue sample to get the most informative description using all the methods required to characterize the pathological changes. The required methods for renal biopsy evaluation include special staining protocols for light microscopic (LM) evaluation, as well as for transmission electron microscopic (TEM) and immunofluorescence evaluations (IF).
