Heartworm Management: A Shelter Practice Perspective on Managing a Complex Disease with Dr. Uri Donnett | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

In today’s VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we discuss how to manage heartworm positive dogs and cats in the shelter setting. What do shelter veterinarians do when it comes to managing heartworm disease? It’s important that shelter veterinarians and veterinarians in practice work together to provide the best possible care for the patients they see, and being heartworm positive disease isn’t a death sentence to that pet! To help sort this out, we’re joined today by Dr. Uri Donnett, DVM, MS, DABVP (Shelter Medicine Practice), Chief veterinarian at the Dane County Humane Society in Madison, Wisconsin. Dr. Donnett also serves on the board of directors for the American Heartworm Society.
