Ms. Burns will present “Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and the Role of Nutrition.” Her presentation will take an in-depth look at the role of nutrition as part of effective multimodal management of HCM, examining the nutrients which aid in improving the quality of life for cats with HCM. She will discuss specific nutrients that may help manage hypertension, decrease fluid retention, maintain heart muscle function, and help slow the progression of concurrent disease processes.
