Cavalier Heart Clinic

From: Sheila
Sent on: Wednesday, February 1, 2012 10:18 AM
Just to let everyone know that I have contacted Dr. Katie Meier and she is very pleased to do a Heart Clinic for us. 
 
The clinic would be set on a weekend, probably in February or March, and would be on a Sunday, as this is the best day to use the clinic facilities.  Dr. Meier proposes that she first give everyone an overview of Mitral Valve disease in Cavaliers and other cardio issues that occur in this breed.  She would then do a heart check (auscultation) to determine if there is a heart murmur and the degree of the murmur.  The cost for the clinic including the heart check would be $40/dog.  If any dog required additional tests or treatment, that would be the decision of the owner to schedule at another time. 
 
This is an excellent way to learn more about cardiac diseases that affect 99% of all Cavaliers.  It's never good news to hear that your Cavalier has a heart murmur but the sooner you know and can begin treatment will bring you a longer life span and quality of life. 
 
I will keep everyone posted as to the date, time etc.  We will need to have enough people sign up in advance to ensure this is worth Dr. Meier's time.
