In the fourth and final part of his focus on ionised hypocalcaemia, Gerardo looks at the controversy regarding treatment of non-clinical cases and the prognostic indications of iCa concentrations.

Hubert Hiemstra looks at a “potentially fatal manifestation of coagulation pathology”, in which mild symptoms in an otherwise healthy dog can quickly escalate into a life-threatening respiratory crisis.

You don’t have to specialise to achieve happiness and contentment in your career, says RVN Carly Kilby. In fact, if you’re happy where you are, your role as an approachable, knowledgeable member of your practice team can keep you fulfilled for years to come.

Following his focus on the most common cause of clinical hypocalcaemia in cats and dogs, Gerardo takes a look at the clinical signs, treatment methods and the correction of calcium.

In the second of this four-part series, Gerardo Poli focuses specifically on the most common cause of clinical hypocalcaemia in feline and canine patients.

Gerardo Poli begins this four-part series by outlining the function of calcium, and common causes of low ionised calcium in cats and dogs.

The question of whether what vets do serves a larger purpose is pondered by Hubert Hiemstra, who has asked: am I wasting my time and talents in practice?

Gerardo Poli concludes his series on blood transfusions by discussing how much volume to give during the process.
