This seminar has been designed to present the most current information on the diagnosis and treatment of many cardiovascular and respiratory diseases that you are commonly asked to manage in your patients. The main emphasis of the seminars will be to give you practical information that you can readily utilize in your practice- along with providing information on the current treatments being offered at the referral centers. Drs. Johnson & Stern are internationally recognized experts in their fields and lecture extensively throughout the world. Both speakers work at very busy clinical practices. Because of their involvement with busy veterinary centers, these personable speakers approach clinical problems very practically. Physical examination and efficient diagnostic testing in animals with respiratory signs: Have you ever wondered where those abnormal sounds are coming from? Dr. Johnson will focus on localizing and identifying abnormalities in the respiratory exam to allow rational diagnostic testing. Updates on brachycephalic syndrome and laryngeal disorders will also be discussed.
