There are, however, other disease processes such as primary respiratory disease which lead to similar presentations and can mimic heart failure. This talk will focus on game changers in heart failure diagnosis. Diagnosis and monitoring of heart failure in primary practice using simple tools available to veterinary practitioners and owners will be covered. There will be a range of clinical scenarios to provide delegates with an update on how to practically approach dogs and cats with cardiorespiratory signs in primary practice. This will be an interactive session with case examples so bring your smart devices!
