    We will consider the imperative decision making process when presented with a possible candidate for caesarean, prognosis for a successful outcome and the influence of economics for commercial flocks and herds.

    Most farm animal post mortem examinations require some form of ancillary testing to achieve a diagnosis. Careful carcass selection, recognition of pathological versus post mortem change, and selection of appropriate samples and tests are important to avoiding racking up an inappropriate bill for the client. Choosing animals to examine that are at an early stage of disease progression is often essential. For many diseases animals suffering from chronic disease, and particularly those that have received multiple treatments, are of little value for post mortem examination. However, for some diseases, e.g. Johnes disease, chronic cases are, by the very nature of the disease, essential.

    The Clinical Club session will consist of several of 10-12 minute clinical case presentations, particularly relevant to the small holder and hobby farmer, but which could occur on any farm anywhere at any time. These will be real cases that have occurred, not just 'teaching material'.  It will include  common,  interesting scenarios, or unusual cases, and consider differential diagnoses.  It is very informal and allows plenty of time for questions and discussion. The target audience is anyone with any interest in pigs, from seeing the occasional pet pig to visiting 1000 sow farms; you never know what your next case might be…….!
