Periodontal disease is the number one medical condition in small animal veterinary medicine. We will begin this presentation with an overview of the current knowledge as to the pathogenesis of periodontal disease. This
will allow us to properly treat the condition. Following this is a discussion of the local and systemic effects of periodontal disease. This will give attendees the ability to improve client compliance with dental recommendations. In addition, a firm grasp of the disease process will improve practitioner understanding of proper treatment modalities.
Due to the plethora of new and concerning information about this condition, treatment and prevention is the subject of significant research. This focus has resulted in numerous new products and procedures to prevent and treat periodontal disease and this presentation is designed as an introduction to these new and future therapies.
Periodontal disease overview
Periodontal disease is the number one health problem in small animal patients. By two years of age, 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have some form of periodontal disease. However, there are generally little to no outward clinical signs, and therefore therapy typically comes very late in the disease. Consequently, periodontal disease may also the most undertreated disease in our patients.
Pathogenesis:
Periodontal disease is generally described in two stages, gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the
initial, reversible stage in which the inflammation is confined to the gingiva. The gingival inflammation is created by plaque bacteria and may be reversed with a thorough dental prophylaxis and consistent homecare. Periodontitis is the later stage of the disease process and is defined as an inflammatory disease of the deeper supporting structures of the tooth (periodontal ligament and alveolar bone) caused by microorganisms. The inflammation results in the progressive destruction of the periodontal tissues, leading to attachment loss. This can be seen as gingival recession, periodontal pocket formation, or both. Mild to moderate periodontal pockets

Aggressive Behavior in Pets-what to do?
This time, mainly aggression in dogs will be discussed. Dogs can be aggressive to humans and this behavior can be sometimes dangerous. Aggression from animals can also break human animal bond that can end up with euthanasia or abandoning the animals which will be a social and public health problem.
Aggression in dogs to the owners are most of the time due to fear, conflict, learned, and not being consistent. However, the famous myth says owner needs to “dominate” the dogs so many owners tends to scold,
yell and sometimes even try to hit the dog for their aggression. Aggression from fear and anxiety cannot be fixed with positive punishment. Aggression can be worse from this myth. During this lecture, we will discuss how to diagnose canine aggression and how to treat it.
