This one-day workshop will provide practical tips on how to approach cardiac disease, from the healthy cat/dog with a heart murmur through to congestive heart failure. Attendees will learn how to diagnose heart failure and have an opportunity to interpret ECGs through case-based interactive learning.
- Learn how to approach the apparently healthy cat/dog with a heart murmur
- Learn how to effectively diagnose and manage congestive heart failure in cats and dogs
- Learn how to obtain a clear ECG trace and how to interpret it

Jacqui graduated from the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom in 2003. She then went on to work in both mixed and companion animal general practice for 6 years before stepping into her passion for cardiorespiratory medicine. She has been working in cardiorespiratory medicine in referral hospitals since 2009 and has completed a residency in Veterinary Cardiology with the University of Nottingham (U.K.). In 2016, she started a mobile cardiology service (Apex Cardiology) and in 2018, she completed her board certification exams with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). She has been awarded a Masters in Veterinary Medicine by the University of Nottingham, the subject of which is intermittent collapse in dogs and cats. Jacqui obtained her specialist status through the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council and we are fortunate to now have her based in Palmerston North.
Value to your practice
Many clinicians lack confidence with managing cardiac cases, despite how common they are. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to approach apparently normal patients with heart murmurs as well as how to manage patients with heart failure. The case-based ECG discussion will help attendees confidently assess traces in the clinic.
