Description

In today's VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we discuss when heartworm patients face complications. Most dogs with adult heartworm infection can be treated and recover without serious complications, particularly if their infections are diagnosed early. But what about those patients with more advanced infection? Today, our guest is Dr. Marisa Ames, DACVIM, a veterinary cardiologist and Associate Professor at the UC Davis. Dr. Ames serves on the board of directors of the American Heartworm Society. Tune in to learn what factors put dogs at increased risk of experiencing complications during heartworm treatment, what some of the more common complications of canine heartworm infection are, how to treat pulmonary hypertension, and what you need to know about caval syndrome.
