and pleased to be here. I was exhausted yesterday when I arrived, due to the fact that I had to be up at 4:30am to catch my flight. We got back around 12:30 (after having breakfast together), and collectively crashed on the couch for a Lost marathon, as well as pizza and gyros for dinner. It was decadent. Today, I have a list of things to accomplish before heading back to work tomorrow.
In the meantime, a few pearls I picked up at NAVC:
-Unlike dogs, if a cat does not have a heart murmur, it is highly unlikely that they have heart disease. Dogs can have heart disease in the absence of a murmur.
-Pimobendan (Vetmedin) is being used in cats with heart failure now, although the dose is extrapolated from dogs, and there are no scientific studies to support its use.
-Long term use of albuterol inhaled in cats may worsen the inflammation associated with feline asthma. It should be used infrequently and only as a rescue therapy.
-Approximately 90% of proptosed eyes (eyes popped out of the head) will likely need to be removed at some point. They commonly develop problems after being fixed such as ulcers, blindness, and suture loosening.
I'll have to leave you with that for now.
