Description

A 3-part discussion on assessing dogs and cats for heart disease in the clinical practice setting.

Part 1) A discussion of how to identify cats at risk for heart disease using physical exam data, as well as radiographic and ECG findings.

Part 2) A discussion of physical exam and clinical evaluation essentials and findings that can guide veterinarians in diagnosing dogs with heart disease.

Part 3) A discussion of the assessment and evaluation of patients through imaging of the heart - either by echocardiography or thoracic radiography. Evaluation of the size of the left atrium is helpful for guiding therapy and assessing a patient's prognosis. Chest radiographs are commonly performed in the veterinary practice setting, and in this section we discuss a new technique for assessing left atrial size called the VLAS (vertebral left atrial size) and its correlation with clinically significant heart disease in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease.

Overall View Rating: 4.6 / 5 stars
