A new module has been added to an online seminar series covering the clinical significance of heart murmurs in cats.

The module, part of the Ceva Cardio Academy, is hosted by Virginia Luis-Fuentes, professor of veterinary cardiology at the Royal Veterinary College.

Heart murmurs are extremely common and known to affect up to 40% of cats at some point in their life.

However, many cats present clinically normal and there are many possible causes ranging from stress, heart disease, hyperthyroidism and hypertension.

To make things even more confusing, more than 50% with congestive heart failure do not have a heart murmur at all.

The online seminar will provide guidance as to how to decide which heart murmurs are significant and work out which are more likely to develop complications, such as congestive heart failure or aortic thromboembolism.

It lasts for 20 minutes and, after viewing, delegates will be able to receive a CPD certificate by answering questions relating to the session.

To access this module, and 20 hours of online cardiology CPD, visit www.cardioacademy.cevalearn.com
