Workshop A

The Oral Microbiome, Dental Disease & Its Control

 

10:00 - 12:00 EDT

Oral health can often be a good indicator of overall animal health, however, there has not been too much focus on the oral microbiome and the role it plays in animal health and disease.

Through a series of presentations, discussions and breakout groups, this is your opportunity to develop your understanding of the oral microbiome in dental disease, and discuss a potential future strategy to overcome the shared challenges of those who are working in this unique area face.

This workshop will:

  • Provide you with a summary of dental disease, morbidity and
    systemic co-morbidities
  • Enable you to understand traditional methods of dental disease
    prevention and treatment
  • Discuss newly emerging approaches for dental disease prevention,
    surveillance and treatment

Workshop B

Precision Intestinal Nutrition: The Challenge to
Modulate Microbiome by Nutrition to Achieve the Best
Performance for Each Animal Species

13:30 - 15:30 EDT

Depending on what animal type you are targeting your product on, your objectives will differ, i.e. in livestock to increase production efficiency or companion animals to improve behavior or gut health. Therefore, translating developments in the human space or across
animals may not be effective.
This workshop will:
  • Help you understand microbiome difference between companion and production animals, and what is the best profile for the different objectives associated with each animal species (i.e. weight gain, meat production, health and well-being)
  • Explore how these differences drive alternative research and
    development strategies
  • Understanding what are the nutrients or additives that best modulate the microbiome according to animal performance
