Fish oil can reduce blood clotting and should be supplemented with caution if blood-thinning medications, asprin, warfarin or clopidogrel are already present in the body.

Why are cardiology researchers inventing bogus definitions of species-wide heart enlargement to test risky drugs? Diuretics, of course, would not be appropriate prior to congestive heart failure, because their purpose is to remove retained fluids from the lungs, a situation which does not exist until CHF occurs.
In the past year, veterinary research publications have been focusing their medication advice upon MVD-affected dogs with enlarged hearts rather than those in CHF.
Research into the efficacy of pimobendan and other drugs in treating MVD-affected dogs with enlarged hearts but prior to CHF — in other words, in Stage B2 — has prompted this change of focus. The point at which a dog reaches CHF has been relatively clear-cut, based upon constant rapid breathing, x-rays showing pulmonary congestion, and other physically observable signs.
Most primary care veterinarians have been trained to recognize the symptoms of CHF. However, detecting heart enlargement — which customarily occurs before CHF — calls for a totally different approach. The most accurate has been the vertebral heart score VHS method proposed by Dr.
James Buchanan of PennVet in Enlargement means getting larger — not just being large Of course, one set of x-rays will provide only one set of measurements. Enlargement means that the size of the heart has gotten bigger over time. The x-rays above, left show the increase in heart size of one cavalier over 5 years.
They look for a more rounded appearance, bulging, and other deviations from the typical normally shaped heart, and whether the heart is impacting the trachea, in addition to the size of the heart.
To the practiced eye of a cardiologist, the heart in the x-ray above will clearly show enlargement. But oddly, the measurements now are species-wide — not even limited to breed-specific, much less the individual canine patient.
These researchers contend, in their published articles, that these species-wide parameters are the precise measurements of the thresholds of enlarged hearts.
In other words, anything less than their minimums define a normal heart and anything above their minimums is necessarily an enlarged heart in any dog of any breed. They use these ad hoc definitions of enlargement both as inclusion criteria in their testing and as recommendations to clinicians in their conclusions.
The researchers also have bastardized the definition of Stage B2 in that they use the term but ignore its meaning. One thing the researchers neglect to do is include any citations to prior research or other peer-reviewed justification for their minimum parameters.
Oh, they might throw in a footnote or two with a cited article when they list their inclusion criteria, but those cited articles are either irrelevant to the subject matter or even expressly contradict those parameters.
The obvious reason they do not — and cannot — cite any peer-reviewed research justifying their species-wide minimum heart enlargement measurements is, because none exists. The first of these studies discussed below, the EPIC Studydefines heart enlargement for all dogs by three minimum measurements — a VHS value and two echo measurements.
Its VHS minimum value is In the years since the PDA was enacted, charges alleging pregnancy discrimination have increased substantially. In fiscal year (FY) , more than 3, such charges were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies, but in FY , 5, charges were filed.

a) Defining discrimination. Discrimination is not defined in the Code but usually includes the following elements. not individually assessing the unique merits, capacities and circumstances of a person. Over time, the effects of discrimination can alter the way the brain perceives information, which can cause a decline in cognitive function, planning capacity and the ability to make logical decisions.
