Canine Cardiology: Key Foundations
204 Manor Place,
London. SE17 3BN
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
