Events

Driven by our responsibility and privilege to support the sharing of knowledge, experience, and camaraderie with oncology specialists throughout the world, we are pleased to sponsor three very important industry events in 2023. 

ACVIM Forum

ACCC was a proud sponsor of the 2023 ACVIM (American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine) Forum in Philadelphia, held on June 15-17, 2023. The world’s largest veterinary specialty organization, ACVIM provides veterinary specialist accreditation in five areas, including oncology. The Forum serves as a premier platform for sharing advancements and research in veterinary internal medicine, ultimately enhancing clinical practice and animal health.

As the sponsor of the full day of oncology seminars at the Forum, we brought a special guest, Dr. Renee Alsarraf, an esteemed veterinary oncologist and author of Sit, Stay, Heal: What Dogs Teach Us About Living Well. Her poignant story of her and her dog’s simultaneous cancer diagnosis and treatment moved us, and we were pleased to provide the book to all oncologists in attendance. We also hosted a private dinner where Dr. Alsarraf and other veterinary oncologists and professionals could relax, connect, and share.

ACCC Oncologist Explains Blood Cancers in Dogs

Hemangiosarcoma (HSA), a malignant tumor of the cells that line blood vessels, was the topic of ACCC’s Summer Webinar offered to primary care vets across Florida and the country. ACCC’s own Ashlyn Williams, DVM, Practice Limited to Oncology, delivered the presentation and provided insights valuable to dog owners who want to learn more about this type of cancer, including its causes, treatment options, and promising emerging discoveries. Dr. Williams explained that this form of cancer is often highly malignant but depends on how the disease presents itself and where it is located.

Advancements in Cancer Diagnostics and Treatment

Dr. Carrissa Wood, DVM, Practice Limited to Oncology, who treats pets in our Central Florida locations, recently presented “Demystifying Cancer Diagnostics” to nearly 100 primary care veterinarians throughout Florida in the second segment of the virtual summer series, “How to Navigate through the Cancer Diagnosis.” As part of the constantly evolving field of veterinary oncology and the all-too-common long wait times for pet owners to see specialists, Dr. Wood outlined a number of new and traditional diagnostic tools and provided a peek into cutting-edge options, including genomics and precision medicine.

You Diagnosed a Pet with Cancer: How Do You Break the News?

By Evan Sones, DVM, MS, DACVIM

Breaking the news about a cancer diagnosis has been discussed for many years as it relates to humans, although little literature exists on the topic for pets. However, based on my own personal experience, delivering this bad news can be just as devastating to clients. How these conversations are handled can play an impactful role in how pet owners deal with the situation, make decisions about their beloved family member, and view their future journey.
