A note about the heart clinic ******Dr. Sonya G. Gordon, DVM, DVSc, DACVIM (Cardiology). She is also interested in finding dogs for her study that is being conducted at A&M

There will be information available to dog owners that may be interested in taking part in a clinical study at Texas A&M in College Station. The clinical study would require visits to Texas A&M about once every 6 months. Visits must be on Mon-Friday.

Dr. Gordon is interested the the following types of dogs for her heart study at Texas A&M and will be completing heart exams on older small breed dogs (< 40 lb), mixed breed (6 years or older) that are relatively healthy. Dogs cannot be taking furosemide [lasix], or pimobendan [Vetmedin].

Dr. Gordon will screen potential study candidates by auscultation (listening with stethoscope) to determine if the dog is potential a candidate for the HECTOR Study. Cost FREE

This is a great opportunity to be proactive in the health of your cavalier as early detection and treatments could possibly prolong the life of your dog.

Cost of the cardiac clinic is $25 for cavaliers.

OFA forms will be available for OFA certification.

:jmp:Janet, it was a very nice event. I know a lot of work went into putting it on. There was a great turn-out, and everone seemed to be enjoying themselves. It was so much fun seeing so many cavaliers (all colors and sizes) in one place. The speakers were very informative. Great job!!!!!
