    112 Patient safety in veterinary anaesthesia

    Back in the New Year Bri and myself are back in the studio and are delighted to be joined by Matthew McMillan, who is a staff clinician here in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia. Matt has a passion about understanding patient safety and errors and has also co-authored a book on that (Errors in Veterinary Anaesthesia with John Ludders). We decided to have a chat about patient safety in veterinary anaesthesia. We will ask Matt to come back in when his next book is published. We hope that you enjoy.

    Joining myself in the studio is Tom Greensmith, one of our ECC lecturers here at the RVC. We thought that we’d ask him about the management of aspiration pneumonia in dogs. We hope that you enjoy. Happy New Year.

    110 What can anatomical pathologists do for us?

    110 What can anatomical pathologists do for us?

    For the final podcast of the year, we have managed to have a few consecutive ones, hopefully a good omen for the New Year. We are delighted to have Professor Ken Smith, Head of the Department of Pathobiology and Population Sciences here at the RVC. He is Professor of companion animal pathology and could speak about a great many things from Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease to theatre. Though we thought we’d ask Ken more about what anatomical pathologists do for us, and also how we can help them in achieving that. We hope that you enjoy and Happy New Year.

    109 Christmas shifts

    109 Christmas shifts

    It is that time of the year when many people are winding down for the holidays though often in our professional team the work not only continues though often gets busier. Joining Brian and myself in the studio we are joined by Ruth Serlin a lecturer here at the RVC in Veterinary Professionalism. We take a windy road in our discussion about looking after yourself and your team during this time. We also discuss an approach to euthanasia, pet bereavement and certain aspects of communication. There are certainly a few sensitive topics in this podcast, though something that all our veterinary teams have to manage daily. However, if you are struggling at this time of year, or any time of year please contact Vetlife, the Samaritans or other charity organisation helplines. We hope that you manage to have some down time during this holiday period and are looking forward to the New Year. Happy holidays, look after yourself and each other.

    108 MRSP

    108 MRSP

    We are coming to the end of another year and well today other events happened in the UK. Anyway regardless of that we have been trying to get Associate Professor of Veterinary Dermatology Anette Loeffler into the studio for a while now, she was a little short of time though has promised to come back again next year. Luckily Brian was on hand to sort out the audio. We discussed what it means if you come up against MRSP – methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius. Enjoy.

    107 Life after graduation - 2 years up

    107 Life after graduation - 2 years up

    Another year has passed by and as we close on 2019 Brian and I are joined by a previous RVC graduate Dave Beeston. We find out what Dave’s been up to in the last year and he’s certainly easier to get back into the studio. He hasn’t started his own podcast yet, though he has been on other podcasts (yes, I know, I couldn’t believe it either). We’ll see if we can continue doing this for a couple more years, we certainly need to get more podcasts out in 2020. Dave will be back writing his column in the Vet Times in the new year. We hope that you enjoy.
