Immune mediated disease: How our immune system works and what happens when things go wrong? By Emma Rogers-Smith BSc(Hons) BA VetMB MRCVS ECVIM-CA Resident in Internal Medicine, Davies Veterinary Specialists

Webinar synopsis: Starting with a brief overview of how the immune system works to keep our pets healthy, we will consider just how intricate, complex and fascinating this microscopic defence system really is. This will be followed by a look at a few diseases of the immune system we see in veterinary medicine including what causes your pet to become unwell, what to look out for and an explanation of the detective work your vet may need to undertake to reach a diagnosis.

Vaccination by Katherine Clarke BVSc MRCVS BSAVA PGCertSAM ECVIM-CA Resident in Internal Medicine, Davies Veterinary Specialists.

Webinar synopsis: We will briefly discuss the various diseases that we routinely vaccinate dogs against and the recommended protocols for these vaccinations. We will then cover some of the ‘bad science’ and ‘anti-vaccination’ thoughts out there and tackle these by reviewing the evidence regarding vaccines and other disease processes, especially immune mediated diseases.
