Dr. Sonya Gordon from Texas A&M University will be speaking with us about cardiology. Topics include:
State of the heart-top advances in veterinary cardiology (1 hr)
Some aspects of diagnosing and treating heart disease and heart failure in the dog and cat have changed little in recent years. However, the results of recent clinical studies have lead to some new options and recommendations. This session will provide a general overview of the state of the art of veterinary cardiology with emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and failure by primary care veterinarians in 2016 and beyond.
The Beat goes on: A case based practical approach to common arrhythmias (1 hr)
A case based presentation will be used to provide attendees with a simple practical approach to clinically significant arrhythmias in the dog and cat
Cold paws, big heart: managing DCM in the dog (1 hr)
Big Heart-Little Budget: Managing heart failure on a shoestring budget (1 hr)
Given the current fiscal environment, as veterinarians we are constantly faced with clients that have limited financial resources and thus we are placed in positions where we need use limited resources to achieve an acceptable clinical outcome. This session will use a case based approach to emphasize a scaled back approach to the management of heart failure in the dog and cat.
