WSVMA DVM: Masterclass Webinar – Diarrhea, Metabolic Acidosis, and Fluid Therapy in Dairy Calves

  |   Continuing Education

Join us Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021, at 12pm for our webinar Diarrhea, Metabolic Acidosis, and Fluid Therapy in Dairy Calves, Updates with Dr. Francisco Leal-Yepes, sponsored by WSU College of Veterinary Medicine. Diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems are the more significant cause of morbidity and mortality in dairy calves. Prevention has been the most successful practice to reduce mortality associated with diarrhea in neonate dairy calves. However, a better understanding of the metabolic unbalance in diarrheic dairy calves will facilitate the formulation of appropriate support therapies in the field.

Dr. Francisco Leal Yepes is originally from Colombia, where he obtained his DVM degree. In 2011, he moved to Ithaca, NY, and worked for two years as a research assistant. Then, he started his Ph.D. in 2013 and a residency in Ambulatory and Production Medicine in 2016 at Cornell University. From 2018 until 2020, Franco was a Clinical Instructor in Ambulatory and Production Medicine at Cornell University. He provided primary care to dairy farms in upstate NY while teaching senior veterinary students. Franco started as an assistant professor of Agricultural Animal Production at the College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University in October 2020.
