A rational approach to using cardiac therapeutics
Treating animals with heart disease sometimes seems like an exercise in polypharmacy. But why do cardiologists recommend multiple medicines for dogs and cats with heart failure? And why might treatment differ in cats? Cardiology is a rapidly evolving field of research studies, and because of this the recommendation may seem to change frequently. In this lecture, we will review the current recommendations for treating heart disease in dogs and cats, and consider the evidence base underlying our decision making.
