Small breed old-aged dogs are a population frequently affected by both myxomatous mitral valve degeneration and degenerative airway disease. Distinction between coughing attributable to heart disease versus airway disease can be challenging. Using case examples, this lecture will describe the approach to these patients in general practice to improve diagnostic accuracy to optimise patient outcome.
This webinar counts for one (1) CE point.
