Heart Murmurs & Coughing in Dogs & Cats TimeOnline

Heart Murmurs & Coughing in Dogs & Cats TimeOnline

This course aims to provide practitioners with a sound, evidence-based approach to dealing with heart murmurs in dogs and cats.

Facilitated by Fleur James, an internal medicine specialist, and specialist radiologist Zoe Lenard, this course covers your approach to an orderly diagnosis of murmurs using the tools you have available in practice, specifically recognizing the differences between dogs and cats.

Differentiation of cardiac and non-cardiac causes of coughing as well as diagnosing cardiomegaly and heart failure on radiographs should be possible at the conclusion of this practical TimeOnline course.

Past Participant:

'I particularly enjoyed the video presentations made by the tutor in module 1 & 3 and found Fleur James responded really well to the discussion forum posts with some very useful summaries of practical treatments etc. I found Zoe's quizzes very good too for pointing out the main messages related to differentiating heart failure from other dx'
