    Event Description

    Tuesday's Clinical Talk will be given by our very own Dr. Robert Shiel. Robert will discuss how to approach cases of Diabetes Mellitus in both dogs and cats. He will discuss how to accurately diagnose these cases, and particularly how to manage them in practice. This is a particularly benefical talk for 4th years studying endocrinology at the moment, as well as final years completing small animal medicine. This is a good introduction to a very important topic to all of the younger years. For those of you who have not come across Rob yet; Robert qualified from UCD in 1999. After four years in small animal practice in the United Kingdom, he returned to UCD to undertake a residency in small animal medicine and obtained the Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine - Companion Animals (Internal Medicine) in 2007. He completed a PhD at UCD in the area of canine thyroid function, and the effects of non-thyroidal illness, in 2011. After four years working as a lecturer at Murdoch University, Western Australia, Robert returned to UCD as a Lecturer in Small Animal Medicine in November 2014. Research interests include small animal endocrinology, neurology and genomics. He has also edited with the Irish Veterinary Journal and the Journal of Small Animal Medicine. He has contributed to many book chapters and peer reviewed journals. This talk is kindly sponsored by MSD (Small Animal Department) Tea, coffee, biscuits and pizza as always!
