Taming the disco - A modern approach to the investigation and management of seizure disorders in the dog and cat
Enhance your understanding and confidence when dealing with seizure disorders, especially those that are refractory to initial treatment. During this webinar we will explore logical methods of investigating and managing seizure activity in dogs and cats. Learn more about the pros and cons of the modern generation of anticonvulsant therapy (Eg. imepitoin, levetiracetam, zonisamide and pregabalin) to improve your treatment repertoire. We will also discuss what defines successful seizure therapy and identify signs that should trigger modification of the current treatment regime. Participants will also develop an awareness of potential concurrent disorders (eg. links to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder syndrome and pancreatitis) and alternative treatment options. Together, let’s learn to tame the disco!

Lydia Hambrook BVSc (Hons) FANZCVS (Registered specialist in small animal medicine)
Lydia’s desire to be a vet stemmed from her upbringing on a thoroughbred horse stud and her exposure to James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small. Following graduation from the University of Melbourne in 2002, she worked in mixed practice in Kilmore, Victoria for the following 4 years. Lydia then gained further experience by working as a locum across a range of small animal and equine clinics in Victoria and South Australia. In 2008, she took the opportunity to work with two veterinary volunteer groups; the Esther Honey foundation in the Cook Islands and Vets Beyond Borders in India. Upon her return to Australia, Lydia completed a residency in small animal medicine at the Melbourne Veterinary Specialist Centre. In 2012, she gained her fellowship in small animal medicine through the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists and became a registered specialist in small animal medicine. Since then Lydia has been working at Advanced Vetcare in Melbourne. She is actively involved in continuing education through her work with the University of Melbourne (tutoring final year veterinary students at U-Vet Werribee) and the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (where she is head of the small animal medicine examination committee). Lydia’s special interests include cardiology, neurology and endocrinology.
