K-State College of Veterinary Medicine
Dr. Allbaugh received her DVM from Iowa State University. After earning this degree, she did a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Greensboro, NC. Rachel came to Kansas State University in July 2005 and is currently working on the requirements to become board-certified in veterinary ophthalmology while concurrently pursuing a master's degree. Dr. Allbaugh’s passion for veterinary ophthalmology began in undergraduate school with her own cat's nearly blinding eye disease. Since that time she has worked with numerous veterinary ophthalmologists, participated in research studies, and been a part of intense clinical training so that she can help teach others how to save vision in our pets and to love veterinary ophthalmology.
24/7 CLIENT CALLS – ARE THERE REAL PROBLEMS OUT THERE?
Annoyed at getting calls from clients at all hours that ask about veterinary stories they’ve heard about from friends or on the internet? Some sound “possible”; some are “unusual”; others have just enough potential to get you wondering! Are they real or are they myths? Come join us as we explore a selection of such issues and determine what’s real and what’s legend…!!

DIAGNOSTIC PARASITOLOGY: HIGHLIGHTING THE INEFFICIENCY OF COMMONLY USED
TECHNIQUES TO RECOVER AND IDENTIFY GI PARASITES OF THE DOG AND CAT
In many veterinary clinics routine fecal analysis has been passed down to the newest member of the staff, with very little instruction or emphasis on the importance of the task. However, the accurate evaluation of fecal samples is critical and should be taken seriously by all members of the veterinary health care team. From the collection of an adequate sample to the entry into the medical record, fecal analysis should be done in a professional, routine manner with emphasis on personal protection, good record keeping, standardized procedures, sanitation and recognition and reporting of the usual as well as the unusual findings. This presentation will discus which techniques are best for recovering and identifying gastrointestinal parasites, including Giardia.
