In this edition of Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Ed Breitschwerdt, a specialist in internal medicine and infectious disease at North Carolina State University. Dr. Breitschwerdt has received funding from the Canine Health Foundation for various infectious diseases including Bartonella spp. In this podcast, Dr. Breitschwerdt describes Bartonella, explains what clinical signs to look for in a potentially ill animal, and also discusses the various research projects underway.
In continuation of our “Old Dogs Rule” educational series, this podcast features Dr. Ashley Saunders, Associate Professor of Cardiology and a Fellow of the Michael E. DeBakey Institute at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Dr. Saunders completed her DVM in 2001 and residency in Cardiology in 2005, both at Texas A&M, and is board certified in veterinary cardiology. She is funded by CHF to identify novel biological markers of mitral valve disease to enhance diagnosis and prognosis of disease. In this podcast she discusses one of the most common age-related problems in dogs, cardiovascular disease.
