Does this coughing dog have heart disease or a respiratory problem? Is that heart big on radiographs? When should I use an NT-ProBNP? What’s the latest thinking on the management of congestive heart failure?

Cardiology is, above all, a very objective and physiological subject – with a few simple ’rules of thumb’ and a sound knowledge of the ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’, clinicians can find their clinical practice skills enhanced and success with cardiac cases improved.

Utilising a mixture of sounds, imaging, practical approaches and case examples, this one-day course aims to equip clinicians with the fundamentals of canine cardiology practice that can be employed daily.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The cardiac history and physical examination
  • Cardiology diagnosis: which test, when and why?
  • Heart failure: causes, identification, differentiating from respiratory disease
  • Heart failure: current management
  • Cardiac radiography
  • Echocardiography tips, trips and pitfalls
