Is it just an innocent murmur? Congenital Heart Disease in Puppies and Kittens & Cats (for Nurses)
Heart murmurs in young puppies and kittens are often managed incorrectly. We know that a delay in the diagnosis of congenital heart disease can mean incorrect treatments and cause a major impact on longer term prognosis. This webinar will help guide the veterinary team through the assessment, management and prognosis of commonly encountered congenital heart diseases with plenty of practical tips and tricks for improving your knowledge on the subject. It also aims to give delegates confidence when discussing these congenital conditions with owners and colleagues.

- Understand the most appropriate tests and how to perform these well in young animals
- Improve ability to detect and understand the significance of a murmur
- Prognosis and treatment options available for the common congenital heart conditions seen
