Small animal cardiology: To refer or not to refer
This webinar will review the decision making for referral of small animal cardiology cases for suspected congenital or acquired cardiac disease. The webinar will be case based and will draw on recent cardiology referrals to Veterinary Specialists Scotland. The discussion will look at what we can do at each stage from investigation to treatment and we will also discuss monitoring in practice when referral is not an option.
Join us online via Teams: 8pm-9pm, Tuesday 24th May
You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions.

The outcomes of the Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) initiative were first published in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2012 and are still used today. This systematic review of over 1000 scientific papers provided us with evidence-based guidelines for dealing with cardiopulmonary arrest in dogs and cats. This webinar will outline the current guidelines in all five domains presented in the review, including Preparedness and Prevention, Basic Life Support, Advanced Life Support, Monitoring and Post-Cardiac Arrest Care.
