GAINESVILLE, Fla. —It was a turkey sandwich she’ll never forget.

On March 19, with the University of Florida Veterinary Hospitals closed for all but emergencies because of COVID-19, Erin Gorey, a client liaison for the UF Large Animal Hospital, was doing her job as best she could given so much uncertainty and operational changes. Suddenly, dozens of boxes of lunches arrived, filled with turkey, ham and vegan sandwiches, chips and cookies.

The 40 meals arrived courtesy of Sally DeNotta, D.V.M., Ph.D., a clinical assistant professor and UF’s equine extension veterinarian, and Chris Sanchez, D.V.M., Ph.D., the interim associate dean for clinical affairs at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine and a large animal internist.

“It was really nice to have the lunches at such a kind of a crazy and unknowing time,” said Gorey, who assisted in delivering the meals to several different locations within the hospital when they arrived. “It really mattered that they thought of us that way.”

As essential faculty, house officers and staff worked valiantly to keep the hospitals running and to care for their animal patients, all the while navigating the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on their own families, faculty clinicians from the large and small animal hospitals recognized the toll the situation was taking on their co-workers. A few who regularly patronized certain local restaurants were also acutely aware of the consequences the pandemic was having on these establishments.

“We wanted to thank the people working so hard to keep the hospital going, while also raising awareness of the major hit our favorite restaurants and their owners were taking as a consequence of the social restrictions,” DeNotta said.

The result: Carry Out and Carry On, an effort through which DeNotta and Sanchez purchased 40 boxed lunches from Fresco’s Pizza & Pasta and Limerock Road Neighborhood Grill, both located in Haile Village, and had the meals delivered to appreciative employees of the large animal hospital. 

“The restaurants were still selling meals as takeout, and everybody loves free food, so it seemed like a win-win,” DeNotta said.

DeNotta, a Haile resident, and Sanchez, a former Haile resident, had a special affinity for Frescos and Limerock. Both knew the restaurants’ owners, Gordy and Jen Braund, a local couple who support various charities and fundraisers throughout the year. Gordy Braund personally packed the meals to ensure that all were made as cleanly and safely as possible.

Meanwhile, at the other side of the hospital complex, Kris Cooke, D.V.M., an associate professor of small animal medicine, was mulling a similar concept.

“Dr. Sanchez is the common denominator,” Cooke said. “I’d been talking to her about trying to support local restaurants to try to keep them in business. She mentioned what Sally planned to do, and I thought it was a great idea. So I stole it.”

The restaurant Cooke especially wanted to support was Blue Gill Quality Foods, a popular spot for UF employees located on SW 13th Street near the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital. Blue Gill is owned by Chef Bert Gill and his wife, Tara, who also own Mildred’s Big City Foods and New Deal Café.

“He’s a big supporter of local agriculture,” Cooke said. “On a personal level, the staff at Blue Gill is fabulous and know many of us from the UF vet school on a first-name basis.”

Blue Gill has also supported the Alachua County Veterinary Medical Association by allowing the group to schedule meetings there, said Cooke’s small animal clinical sciences colleague, Amy Stone, D.V.M., Ph.D., a clinical assistant professor who serves as secretary/treasurer of the group. 

Cooke talked to a few of her colleagues about the possibility of pooling resources, given that the number of faculty and staff working in the small animal hospital is quite a bit larger than those working in the large animal facility.

“I ordered 90 lunches from Blue Gill for me to pick up on the designated day,” Cooke said. “Later, the staff at Blue Gill called me to offer to deliver the lunches, because they were worried that I wouldn't have enough room in my car. Ninety lunches disappeared in a matter of minutes!”

Unfortunately, Blue Gill closed soon after the lunches were delivered. Closing its doors was essential to ensure the best likelihood of its eventual reopening, Bert Gill said, adding that the hardest thing was having to lay off 47 employees, although he hopes to bring them back. Gill continues to cook his made-from-scratch, locally sourced food for takeout at his other restaurants, and devotes much of his time these days to community feeding efforts in conjunction with other partners.

His relationships with the veterinary school and UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences are longstanding and sincere, Gill said.

“We get to know a lot of people, and have a genuine culture within the business, caring about what we do, and the needs of our guests. When Vet Med comes in, it’s a big deal. And I watch how everybody develops relationships with my co-workers and myself, and there is genuineness to that.”

Gordy Braund, Fresco’s owner, also had to lay off employees. Fresco’s last meal was served on April 11. Limerock Café, remains open — for now.

“This all hit us in our busiest time of the year, and we don’t have a road map, unfortunately. Nobody does,” Braund said. “We’re going a day at a time, a week at a time, negotiating with vendors and trying to keep going as well as we can.”

He said the UF veterinary college interested him because it brings faculty to the community from all over the world and, he said, veterinarians by nature tend to be community-minded people.

“Sally’s a good example of how someone comes to town and forms a bond,” Braund said. “She came to us and said, ‘You need help, and the people in the large animal clinic need help, so let’s collaborate.’”

On the day the boxed lunches were delivered to the UF Large Animal Hospital, DeNotta showed up at Frescos in a Limerock T-shirt, running shorts, gloves and a mask and helped load and deliver the lunches.

“Those lunches amounted to half of our sales for that day,’’ Braund said. “It was a huge part of our revenue.’’

Numerous emails of thanks and calls to the restaurant ensued. DeNotta’s efforts even generated another request for 40 meals to be delivered to UF Health. “This allowed us to stay in business and do a little good,” Braund said. “It was good for our staff, a number of people heard about it and ordered other meals and it was good all around. We were grateful for that opportunity to connect.”

Large animal veterinary technician Chelsea Lopez, was among those who enjoyed her lunch that day.

Alex Fox-Alvarez, D.V.M., an assistant professor of small animal surgery at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, has a reputation for taking innovative approaches to teaching.

So when COVID-19 safety measures implemented at UF meant fourth-year veterinary students were suddenly released from clinics on March 17 and faculty members needed to convert course content into an online format within one week, Fox-Alvarez turned a challenge into an opportunity for creative problem-solving.

 “I wanted to make sure that my rounds included the elements of clinics that students would miss out on while away from the UF Small Animal Hospital,” Fox-Alvarez said.

The list was long: There’d need to be client communication, taking a patient’s history, making a diagnostic plan and interpreting tests to determine the best next step in care. Skills typically learned by observation — including how to communicate findings to the client and develop plans for treatment and postoperative care, provide detailed surgical procedural explanations and even address ethical dilemmas — would need to be communicated by distance learning.

Fox-Alvarez reached for video, which he regularly used for surgical teaching during his residency training at UF and later as a faculty member. He scrambled to rework old surgery lectures into an online rounds format that would suffice to replicate the vast clinical experience for students over a relatively short period of time. When it soon became clear that students would remain away from clinics for longer than previously thought, his initial concept evolved into a platform that could deliver long-term online learning: Veterinary Isolated Clinical Education, or VICE, Rounds. 

 “I wanted to incorporate as many example case images and videos as possible so that students could have a more memorable experience with the case, which would hopefully help them understand the key points they would need to take away for use in practice,” he said. “I also wanted to make sure to include the experience of case rounds and discussing diseases and treatment options in a relaxed way in a small group with faculty.”

He created organized breaks in his initial rounds presentation to allow for discussion of key points immediately before they were illustrated in the slides, as well as worksheets for grading.

“These rounds are really fun to build and record, but doing a lecture well takes a lot of energy. It didn’t take long to realize what a monumental task creating a comprehensive online substitute for clinical education would be, especially in the face of the abrupt chaos falling upon all veterinary colleges at once,” he said.

“There was no way any one institution could do it alone, especially in a time-frame fast enough to benefit the students now. Fortunately, Vet Med is a small, tightknit and passionate profession and I knew there would be colleagues elsewhere who would also be interested in making and volunteering their recorded rounds topics to benefit educators and students in our shared community.”

Fox-Alvarez then set up all of the logistics online to get the crowd-sourced VICE Rounds operational, and sent the initial call for volunteers to two surgery listservs where it spread and grew organically from there.

Volunteers contribute topic- and case-based rounds for on-demand streaming across teaching institutions, decreasing the pressure on each university to develop its own free-standing, off-site clinical curricula while managing urgent clinical needs, Fox-Alvarez said. 

Currently, there have been 19 recorded rounds uploaded, with over 50 more topics in progress from veterinarians at 15 different participating universities, including one from Canada and five specialty private practices, including one from the United Kingdom. Within just two weeks of the first VICE Rounds, the initiative had garnered mentions in an American Veterinary Medical Association newsletter and on the Veterinary Information Network.

With the help of his wife, Stacey Fox-Alvarez, D.V.M., a third-year veterinary medical oncology resident, Fox-Alvarez continues to finetune the project, involving more colleagues from UF and other institutions, harnessing the collective energy and creativity to enhance content and students’ learning experience in spite of the limitations in place.

Enough interest ensued that within a week, Fox-Alvarez had received additional recorded rounds from several other educators. From UF, rounds were contributed from his wife as well as from Penny Regier, D.V.M., an assistant professor of small animal surgery, and Alexander Thompson, D.V.M, an anesthesiology resident. Also contributing was Jacqueline Whittemore, D.V.M., Ph.D., an associate professor of small animal surgery at the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

Whittemore, the first non-UF faculty member to volunteer to do a VICE rounds, said when she first read about the initiative, she was inspired to see people choosing to act in response to the pandemic, instead of to just their own circumstances. She worked deep into the night and wrapped up her first recording at 1 a.m.

“The biggest surprise for me has been all the feedback I have already received on it,” Whittemore said. “What has been more rewarding, however, is how much the catalog has grown between then and yesterday when I logged on to update the status for my newest rounds. It is a true testament to both the Fox-Alvarezes’ vision and the mettle of veterinary educators everywhere. We do, indeed, have some of the greatest jobs and colleagues on earth.”

Fox-Alvarez said he knew veterinary students everywhere in the clinical phase of their curriculum are probably disappointed that they are missing out on their clinical clerkships.

“But we are doing our damndest and so far, students have been very positive with feedback,” he said. “Although there is no substitute for experiential learning, VICE Rounds strive to emulate the clinical case experience using the unique resources and perspectives of veterinary educators from different specialties, universities and locations. I’m hopeful that this may serve as a lasting and reliable resource for students and veterinarians during an otherwise volatile time.”

 

The Guidelines and accompanying Client Brochure provide a guide to veterinary practitioners in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of these common infectious diseases in cats

[HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – January 2020] On Thursday, January 9, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) will release updated Feline Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines to the veterinary community, which will be published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery. In publishing these Guidelines, the AAFP aims to provide the most current information about feline retrovirus infections to veterinary practitioners so they may optimize the care and management of their feline patients. In addition, the Client Brochure provides cat caregivers with information regarding transmission, testing, prevalence, and precautions. These Guidelines focus on feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infections, which are found in cats worldwide. The spread of these viruses can be minimized through education, testing, and vaccinations.

The updated Guidelines represent a consensus of current information compiled by an international panel of researchers and practitioners, and is an update of the AAFP’s heavily referenced 2008 Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines.
 
“Education and early testing can greatly assist in the treatment and management of feline retrovirus infections. Routine veterinary care, when cats are well and when they are sick, can lead to better care and decrease the spread of infection. We are pleased to present these Guidelines to support both veterinary professionals and cat caregivers in the management of these illnesses. We further stress the partnership between veterinarians and cat owners in caring for infected cats because with regular healthcare and reduced stress, cats infected with retroviruses, especially FIV, may live many healthy years,” said Heather O’Steen, CEO, AAFP.
 
“The 2020 Feline Retrovirus Testing and Management Guidelines contain much new information about feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus infections. The Guidelines were written by an international panel of experts and included not only retrovirus researchers, but veterinarians working in private practice and in shelters. We hope these Guidelines will be of practical use for all veterinarians. The panel is especially proud to have endorsement of the Guidelines by the International Society of Feline Medicine,” said Retrovirus Guidelines Co-Chair Susan Little, DVM, DABVP (Feline).
 
Julie Levy, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, DABVP (Shelter Medicine) added, “These guidelines address rapidly evolving knowledge about how testing results, clinical expression, and prognosis for FeLV may change over time relative to the cat’s current immune response and resulting levels of virus in circulation, how quantitative testing may be used to better inform clinical decision-making, and an emerging trend in which screening for FeLV and FIV is increasingly shifting from animal shelters, where cats are adopted, to veterinary practices, where animals receive comprehensive care.”
 
 
 
More About Retroviruses:
These Guidelines and Client Brochure represent current knowledge on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of retrovirus infections in cats. Infections with FeLV and FIV are associated with a variety of clinical signs and can impact quality of life and longevity. Although vaccines are available for FeLV in many countries and for FIV in some countries, identification of infected cats remains an important factor for preventing new infections. The retrovirus status of every cat at risk of infection should be known. Cats should be tested as soon as possible after they are acquired, following exposure to an infected cat or a cat of unknown infection status, prior to vaccination against FeLV or FIV, and whenever clinical illness occurs. It might not be possible to determine a cat’s infection status based on testing at a single point in time; repeat testing using different methods could be required. Although FeLV and FIV infections can be associated with clinical disease, some infected cats, especially those infected with FIV, can live for many years with good quality of life. There is a paucity of data evaluating treatments for infected cats, especially antiretroviral and immunomodulatory drugs. Management of infected cats is focused on effective preventive health care strategies and prompt identification and treatment of illness, as well as limiting spread of infection. 
 

Prevalence and the Spread of Retroviruses in Cats:
FIV: Feline immunodeficiency virus is more commonly found in male cats and cats that fight with other cats. It is found less often in kittens and neutered adult cats. The virus is spread primarily through saliva and is usually passed to other cats by bite wounds. In North America, about 3 to 5% of tested cats are found to be infected with FIV.
 
FeLV: Feline leukemia virus infection is more commonly spread from mother to kittens. The virus can also be spread between cats that live together or those that fight. It is mainly spread in saliva during grooming and when food and water bowls are shared. The virus is less often spread through urine, feces, or nasal discharge. In North America, 4% of tested cats are found to be infected with the virus.
 
 
Prevention:
There are no vaccines marketed in the United States or Canada that can protect cats from FIV infection.
 
Vaccines to protect cats from FeLV infection are available. The vaccine is recommended for all kittens, again one year later, and for cats that have ongoing risk of infection. Adult indoor-only cats living alone or with uninfected cats may not need to be vaccinated after the first two years. Veterinarians will help assess an individual cat’s vaccination needs.

Does your Veterinarian have Specific Senior Pet Programs for the pet and their pet parents?


In the recent DVM360 veterinary magazine survey, it was reported that most of veterinary hospitals do not have a special emphasis on Senior Pet Wellness. If your veterinarian or your practice does have a Senior Pet Wellness program – Congratulations!


For those who don’t there are great resources available from the AVMA, AAHA and even the DVM360 magazine web version. All these will have procedures, brochures and suggestions for a successful Senior Pet Program.

Here are some suggestions gleaned from these resources:

Make sure the entire staff is on the same page. You can use a chart that lists recommended procedures for every age. The chart can function as a reference for receptionists when they are checking in the patient.


Talk to your lab about custom panels or develop your own Senior Pet Panel.


Teach Team Members. Make certain that all on your team know the basics about common problems in senior pets.


Implement a Senior Pet Discount. A senior pet really needs to be seen more often so a discount could encourage more frequent visits.

Interested in Adding a Senior Wellness Program to your Practice?

Neutricks encourages you to do an on line research at DVM360, the AVMA or AAHA and check out all the great resources.
