"On Site" Registration now in progress
through Sunday, August 14, 2016

As veterinarians, often wish we had more to offer our patients concerning challenges with the "heart". This is especially true when their owners are not able to take advantage of available referral services.

Come join us for Dr. Blount's well known "Practical Cardiology" Seminar. Don't miss the latest information and updates in Veterinary Cardiology. You'll gather a wealth of cardiac care knowledge you can put to use immediately in your clinic, plus fulfill your total 2016 CE requirement.

We'll cover topics in cardiology most commonly seen in small animal practice, focusing on diagnosis and treatment in the trenches. For example, you'll learn about:

  • Is the cough cardiac, respiratory or both?
  • When does your patient need pimobendan and when is it not appropriate?
  • What do the squiggly lines on the ECG really mean?
  • What are the latest CPR Guidelines recommended by the 2012 RECOVER Advisory Board?
  • How do you keep staff trained and ready for CPR to maximize patient survival?
  • How do you tell the difference between an ejection murmur and a holosystolic murmur (we will review audio of murmurs and arrythmias)?

Your registration fee includes:

  • 17 hours of Continuing Education
  • an electronic Proceedings on flash drive, including all Power Point slides and client handouts
  • in-clinic forms (cardiac history and exam, ECG and echocardiogram interpretation)
  • handy reference charts for emergency drugs, treating arrhythmias, reading radiographs and EKGs, interpreting fluid analysis, etc.
  • special laboratory submission forms
  • access to download the proceedings in .pdf format after the seminar
  • plus a continental breakfast and hot lunch provided each day at no charge

Printed Proceedings may be purchased for an additional charge of $50.
