Feline Arterial Thromboembolism

While the prognosis for cats with ATE is considered guarded to poor, among those that survive the first 48 to 72 hours, many will eventually regain some or even all motor function.

Arterial thromboembolism is an acute or peracute condition that results from embolization of a thrombus within a peripheral artery. Take a closer look at the signs, diagnosis, and management of this often fatal disease.

Congestive Heart Failure in Canines

Heart failure is a syndrome of clinical signs that, although well recognized by clinicians, is difficult to define precisely. Treatment of CHF in dogs can be divided into two phases: acute and chronic.

Finding the Balance in Your Patients with Cardiovascular and Renal Disease

Cardiovascular and renal disease are commonly diagnosed in cats and dogs; incidence increases with patient age. Each condition is irreversible and progressive. These conditions are particularly challenging when they occur simultaneously; what is good for one system may be counterproductive for the other. In this article, we describe the physiologic interactions between these 2 systems, disease classifications, techniques for detecting one condition in the presence of the other, and strategies for managing patients with these co-existing conditions.

Advances in Feline Cardiac Diagnostics

The diagnosis of cardiac disease in cats can be challenging and may require a combination of history, physical examination, laboratory evaluation, electrocardiography, diagnostic imaging, and systemic workup.

The diagnosis of cardiac disease in cats can be challenging and may require a combination of history, physical examination, laboratory evaluation, electrocardiography, diagnostic imaging, and systemic workup. This article presents 2 clinical cases, 1 with and 1 without clinical signs of heart disease, to highlight the use of tailored diagnostics to diagnose cardiac disease in cats.
