    Biomarker changes with SAM of the mitral valve in cats with HCM | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    Biomarker changes with SAM of the mitral valve in cats with HCM | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education podcast, we discuss the cardiac biomarkers in veterinary medicine. Biomarkers have been shown to be useful in assessment of severity of disease and etiology of clinical signs in cats with cardiomyopathies. The two cardiac biomarkers most thoroughly studied to date are N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic hormone (NT-proBNP) and cardiac troponin-I (cTnI). NT-proBNP provides information regarding degree of myocardial stretch and stress, while cTnI is more specific for assessing severity of myocardial injury. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is superficially thought of as a singular disease but actually encompasses a mosaic of various phenotypes dependent on location and heterogeneity of hypertrophy and presence or absence of obstructive processes. The most common obstructive process is dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (DLVOTO) in association with systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve (SAM), identified in up to 30% of cats with HCM. The presence of this finding in cats with HCM constitutes a diagnosis of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, or HOCM. Elevations in both NTproBNP and cTnI have been documented in cats with HCM/HOCM but whether differential elevations in these markers occurs in cats with HCM vs cats with HOCM has not been thoroughly investigated. So, Seo et al out of the United Kingdom wanted to evaluate this in a study entitled Biomarker changes with systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The authors also aimed to determine what other relevant clinical factors might affect the degree of elevation of NTproBNP and/or cTnI. They hypothesized that cats with obstructive disease would have higher elevations in these biomarkers than those without.

    Using a combination of Advantage Multi with doxycycline for treatment of canine heartworm disease | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    Using a combination of Advantage Multi with doxycycline for treatment of canine heartworm disease | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education podcast, we discuss heartworm disease in dogs. So, what do you need to know aboout heartworm disease and what's the latest in treatment for heartworm? We review a paper by Savadelis et al entitled "Clinical assessment of heartworm-infected Beagles treated with a combination of imidacloprid/moxidectin and doxycycline, or untreated". The primary purpose of the study at hand was to describe clinical and necropsy findings in dogs with experimentally-infected heartworm disease receiving this treatment regimen, compared with untreated control dogs. Does slow-kill heartworm treatment work over traditional Immiticide therapy?

    Help Your Practice CATipalize on Kitten Visits: Improving Feline Patient Visits and Retention | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    Help Your Practice CATipalize on Kitten Visits: Improving Feline Patient Visits and Retention | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

    In this VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we interview Dr. Natalie Marks, DVM, CVJ on the state of feline medicalization (only 36% of cats ever see a veterinarian, compared to 79% of dogs), and how veterinary practices can improve feline patient visits and keep cats coming back year after year. We'll cover the reasons for poor patient retention post-kittenhood, and learn how to capitalize on those all-important kitten visits. We'll explore how to implement easy cat-friendly protocols in any practice and improve communication with cat owners to help them value wellness exams and preventive care (vaccines, routine diagnostics, and preventive care) for both indoor and outdoor cats. Dr. Marks has been training practices for several years in this area of expertise, and has presented at AAFP, WVC, and numerous other conferences on this topic.
