Making the Case for Heartworm Prevention in Cats with Dr. Mark Cousins | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts
In today’s VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we discuss heartworm disease in cats. How can we make the case for heartworm prevention in our feline patients? Why is heartworm in cats challenging to diagnose? What guidelines can veterinary professionals follow for routine monitoring of cats for heartworms? Should we recommend routine heartworm testing in cats or testing when we see clinical signs that make us suspect heartworm infection? To help sort this out, we’re joined today by Dr. Mark Cousins, DABVP (Feline Medicine), owner of The Cat Practice Veterinary Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. Cousins also serves on the board of directors for the American Heartworm Society.
