Seminar Topics:

Cardiac topics:

How should I manage:

  • Atrial fibrillation in dogs?
  • Asymptomatic mitral valve regurgitation?
  • Ventricular tachycardias?
  • Asymptomatic dilated cardiomyopathy?
  • Congestive heart failure in cats?
  • Congestive heart failure in dogs?
  • Coughing dog with cardiomegaly and no pulmonary edema?
  • Arrhythmias in cats?
  • Heartworm disease in dogs?
  • Heartworm disease in cats?
  • When should I use pimobendan?
  • How and when should I evaluate BNP?
  • When do I recommend a radiograph and/or an echocardiogram?
  • This dog has a murmur- can i still do anesthesia?
  • This cat has a murmur- can i still do anesthesia?
  • Any hope for cats with thromboembolism?

Respiratory topics: 

• Patient examination and diagnosis
• Localizing abnormal breathing sounds
• Improve your skills in auscultation and percussion
• Localizing the lesion
• Abnormal breathing patterns
• Radiological clues to the diagnosis of pulmonary disease
• What diagnostic test is next?
• When is bronchoscopy necessary?
• What to expect in a tracheal wash or bronchoalveolar lavage samples: basic respiratory cytology
• Coughing dogs and cats
• Managing tracheal and airway collapse
• Control of chronic bronchitis and bronchiectasis
• What’s new in feline bronchial disease?
• Rational antibiotic use
• Optimal management of bacterial pneumonia
• Choosing respiratory drugs
• Management and prevention of aspiration pneumonia
• Adjunct respiratory therapy
• Proper use of inhaled medications
• Acute respiratory distress: differential diagnosis and stabilization

Cardiopulmonary case challenge: Abnormal breathing patterns and adventitious lung sounds can be found in animals with cardiac or pulmonary disease, and cough, tachypnea, and respiratory distress are common signs of disease associated with either condition. Even the presence of a murmur does not always signify a cardiac etiology of disease, and radiographic changes of cardiomegaly or pulmonary infiltrates can obscure the underlying cause of the clinical presentation. Determining the primary disease process relies on a good history and physical examination and will be supported by radiographic findings and additional tests. I have asked the speakers to present some of their most challenging cases to demonstrate how the experts work through these confusing cases.
