Trauma to the jaw commonly affects our patients. It can be caused by vehicular accidents, falling from a great height or even iatrogenically. In this seminar, Dr Cedric will discuss conditions that are commonly seen in practice, including symphyseal separation, jaw fractures, temporomandibular joint disease, and their treatment options including stabilization, analgesia and post-operative management.


Speakers' biography


Dr Cedric LC Tutt
BSc(Agric), BVSc, BVSc(Hons), MMed Vet(Med), Diplomate EVDC, MRCVS

Dr Cedric is from a farming background, having grown up on a mixed enterprise farm near East London, in the Eastern Province of South Africa. As a youngster he participated in the treatment of livestock and pets and preferred to ride his old horse each afternoon rather than do school homework!

After spending 2 years in the military (a requirement at the time), he graduated with a BSc Agriculture degree and spent 2.5 years participating in research in aromatic plants; grown for their fragrance and flavour characteristics. During this time Cedric decided that he should revisit his first-choice career, and at the age of 29 was accepted to study veterinary science at Onderstepoort, the veterinary faculty at the University of Pretoria. Graduating at 35 years of age, he immediately entered a Clinical Assistant programme and obtained the BVSc(Hons) and the specialist degree in cattle medicine, MMedVet(Med). Thereafter he and his wife, Kim (also a veterinarian), moved to the UK for 7 years where Cedric specialized in veterinary dentistry and became a diplomate of the European Veterinary Dental College in 2007, and has served as President of the EVDC. He is currently a member of the EVDC Examination Committee. He has published numerous articles and presented presented dentistry and oral surgery lectures at congresses in Europe, China, Hong Kong, UK and South Africa.

Approach to Sepsis

Date : Thursday 17th January 2019
Venue : Huthard Room II & Presidents Room, 3/F South Tower, YMCA, Hong Kong
Time : Registration & Buffet Dinner: 7:00 ~ 8:00pm, Seminar: 8:00~10:30pm
Speaker : Dr Erik Zager

    • Members : $480
    • Non-Members : $750


Organizer : The Hong Kong Veterinary Association Ltd.

Sepsis is a common, yet complicated disease faced by every veterinarian. There are constantly new developments in the diagnosis and treatment of sepsis, as well as an expanding understanding of the complex pathophysiology. New staging and treatment strategies in the human medical field, such as with the 'Surviving Sepsis Campaign' and 'Sepsis 3.0', can be used to guide veterinarians in treatment of their patients, but caution must be used in translating these into the veterinary field.

The most important step in the treatment of sepsis is recognition. Exam findings and clinicopathologic testing must be combined with the goal of rapid recognition of sepsis. Treatment is focused on management of systemic effects and source control. This talk will focus on the strategies for improving early recognition and treatment of sepsis in additional to antimicrobial therapy options and combinations. Explanations of the new definitions of sepsis in human medicine will also be discussed with emphasis on how these can be implemented in veterinary medicine.
