Shaun McKane will discuss Sarcoids & Other Dermal Tumours during this webinar. Dermal tumours such as sarcoids, melanomas and squamous cell carcinomas are common conditions presented to veterinarians. In this talk we will look at the hot tips for diagnosing these conditions and the logical approach to the treatment of them. The key to improving the welfare of horses with tumours is the early recognition and therapeutic action of the vet. After this talk you will be faster at both recognising the problem and responding. In doing so you will improve your success rates and reduce the owner fear associated with these conditions.
Shaun got his veterinary degree from the University of Sydney in 1993, where he also completed an intercalating degree in equine respiratory responses to exercise with Prof. Reuben Rose. After a time in equine practice he moved to take up a PhD at the University of Melbourne, centred on the affects of exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage on racehorse lungs.
Wanting to continue his development as an equine Specialist, he moved to Oregon State University in 1999, to undertake a residency position and become a Boarded Specialist with the American College of Equine Internal Medicine. In 2002 he moved to the University of Liverpool, Leahurst where he has worked as a senior lecturer in equine medicine and has become a European College Specialist in Equine Medicine. He has recently moved back into private equine practice at Cotts Equine Hospital in West Wales to provide a specialist medical and intensive care service to the growing racing and pleasure horse population in that region.
