Case Studies In Small Animal Cardiovascular Medicine

Case Studies In Small Animal Cardiovascular Medicine

This learning resource was developed by Mark D. Kittleson, DVM, PhD, professor at the University of California, Davis. According to the web site: "This site is designed to present small animal patients with cardiovascular disease examined by the author (Dr. Mark Kittleson) and his residents working in the Cardiology Service at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) at UC-Davis. The format is that of a rounds session in which the signalment, history, and physical examination findings are presented on the first page followed by diagnostic studies. All cases are real as evidenced by the case numbers and names on each diagnostic procedure. However, some cases do include videos from other patients with the same disease to illustrate the abnormalities in real time. All of the written case material is transcribed directly from the computerized case records of the patient. Senior students at the UCD VMTH are primarily responsible for this content although this section has been edited by the author."
