Event Information

Title: The Tale of Four Felines – The Use of Vet BLUE and TFAST in the Respiratory Distressed Cat

Description:

Respiratory patterns and lung auscultation are unreliable indirect means of sorting through various common causes of respiratory distress in felines and radiography is risky.  We will discuss the Tale of Four Felines, including feline asthma, left-sided congestive heart failure, pleural effusion, and metastatic disease.  Each cat has similar breathing patterns of nostril-flaring and abdominal breathing that are rapidly categorized with evidence-based information through the rapid (< 2 minutes) standardized use of point-of-care ultrasound imaging using Vet BLUE and TFAST without the risk of radiography that can wait until the cat is more stable.  Clinical pearls for imaging and staging cats will also be presented.
