Sussex Veterinary Society Talk Wednesday November 15th 2017

Managing degenerative Myxomatous Valvular Disease - New Tricks for Old Dogs

Managing heart disease in dogs is a common part of every day veterinary practice. Degenerative myxomatous valvular disease, or mitral valve disease, is the most common acquired heart disease in dogs. Many older, typically small breed dogs develop a heart murmur and some ultimately developing heart failure.

Despite the conditions prevalence knowing how best to advise owners regarding managing these patients can sometimes be difficult even for experienced clinicians.

There have been a number of very exciting developments in managing degenerative myxomatous valvular disease recently, both in the clinical and pre-clinical stages.

This talk will review the diagnosis of degenerative myxomatous valvular disease and discuss its staging, monitoring and therapy. There will also be scope for discussion of some of the commonly encountered difficulties encountered in general practice.

Gavin McAulay is a cardiologist at New Priory Vets Brighton with over ten years of experience in managing cardio-respiratory referrals. Gavin is an RCVS Cardiology Diploma candidate and as well as working within private practice is a visiting clinician at the Glasgow University Veterinary School.
