Today's Daily Dose: Canine cardiomyopathy

VETERINARY MEDICINE

Untitled Document

“Differentiating an American cocker spaniel with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) from one with longstanding mitral regurgitation and secondary myocardial failure can be challenging and usually requires echocardiography. Presenting signs may be similar, but accurate diagnosis is important because some American cocker spaniels with DCM will respond to taurine and carnitine supplementation.”
