Description

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education podcast, we discuss aortic thrombi (ATh) in dogs. If you are like this VETgirl, when you hear of an aortic thrombus your mind may jump to the dreaded feline cardiac case that presents yowling in distress from an aortic thromboembolism (ATE) and giving heart palpitations to everyone on your staff. In fact, you may be trying to remember if you have ever managed a canine patient with an ATh. While small animal clinicians manage many types of thromboembolic diseases, the presence of a true canine ATh is not a commonly recognized complication in this VETgirl's experience. Recently a very helpful consensus on antithrombotic use was published, yet there are relatively few large-scale studies evaluating canine ATh in the veterinary literature (deLaforcade). Therefore in this study by Ruehl et al, the authors sought to expand upon this area, and they describe risk factors, treatments, and outcome in a cohort of dogs diagnosed with ATh.
