What to do when you hear a murmur?
You have just told the client you have heard a heart murmur… Now what? Join us with Veterinary Cardiology Specialist Dr. Fiona Meyers as she gives you the foundations to cardiac patient management. She will cover the most recent guidelines around staging and interventions including medications and nutrition.
Hearing a heart murmur doesn’t mean we should intervene straight away, and owners get anxious with this approach. Having a solid understanding of the new 2019 consensus for cardiac patient management will help to develop your treatment plans and client communications.
Date and time
The webinar will be hosted live at 9pm on the 8th June, and then hosted on-demand for the week following where you can still view the recording of the live session, ask questions and download your CPD certificate.
Intended learning outcomes
- Update on the recent cardiac guidelines
- Understanding of staging
- Understanding of intervention and approaches
