Course Overview

The Veterinary Cardiology Course II of the ESAVS requires experience and knowledge in veterinary cardiology.
Topics include advanced treatment options, syncope and ECG, basic echocardiography, feline cardiomyopathies and advanced diseases.

General Program:
In the mornings: lectures with one general topic. In the afternoons: practical training on patients, group case discussion on pre-recorded case material.

– Syncope: practical work-up and differentials
– ECG-repetition: assessment of arrhythmia`s and treatment strategies
– Holter Monitoring: when to use, how to do, and how to Analyse
– Assessment of the diuretic function, the challenge between volume overload and hypo Perfusion
– Advanced treatment options of acute heart failure
– Advanced treatment options of chronic heart failure
– Interactive cases management of challenging cases
– Clinical case studies, heart failure treatment
– Dyspnea in felines
– Feline Cardiomyopathies: physical examination, SAM, DR VOTO, genetic tests
– Feline Cardiomyopathies-ECG, radiography and biomarker changes
– Update: treatment of feline cardiomyopathy
