In this concise and practical review, the authors recognize that among the range of cardiac investigations available to veterinarians, the standard electrocardiogram (ECG) is an indispensable, safe and inexpensive test in assessing dogs and cats with heart disease. Following discussion of the principles of electrocardiography, the book systematically explores the evaluation of the ECG—including determination of heart rate, measurement of intervals, derivation of the mean electrical axis, and criteria for atrial and ventricular enlargement or hypertrophy. It also examines intraventricular conduction disturbances and both normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms. Flow charts are provided to help users diagnose arrhythmias with confidence and 46 real cases and ECG tracings reinforce the principles and encourage discussion. Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation in Small Animal Practice is illustrated throughout and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, technicians, and students who wish to improve their skills in interpreting ECGs.

Prior to publication of the first edition of Clinical Medicine of the Dog and Cat, no other comprehensive small animal veterinary medicine book existed with a comparable amount of relevant illustrated material. This new third edition continues and expands on the revolutionary approach of the previous two editions, now including more than 1,850 highly valuable clinical colour photographs, diagrams, and tables. The third edition of this book has been completely revised and updated. The book is now divided into five color-coded sections – General Approach, Disease of Specific Organ Systems, Multisystemic Disorders, Elements of Therapy and Case Studies. As with the first and second editions of this book the overriding principle of succinct, yet comprehensive text presented in a clear format with an abundance of good quality images remains. Section I: General Approach is completely new and covers medical history and client communication, and common clinical problems. Section II: Specific Organ Systems is organized by body system with chapters structured in a systematic manner that include the definition for each disorder, its causes, clinical features, differential diagnoses, diagnostic methodology, treatment and prognosis, providing readers with easy access to important clinical information. New to this section are chapters covering diseases of the oral cavity and teeth, approach to thoracic radiographs, approach to abdominal radiographs, and disorders of hemostasis. Section III: Multisystemic Disorders covers revised and updated chapters including clinical toxicology, infectious diseases, and immunologic disorders. Section IV: Elements of Therapy covers therapies such as fluid therapy, pain management, nutrition of the critically ill dog and cat and a new chapter on management of the obese dog or cat. Section V: Case Studies includes over 25 case studies that enable the reader to relate the knowledge gained in the book to clinical cases seen in practice. Written by board-certified experts with several case contributions by clinicians in advanced phases of resident training, topics were carefully selected to make this a valuable resource to the general practitioner and also to small animal interns and veterinary students.
Transform your practice! Creating a "pet-friendly" hospital, shelter or petcare business is a simple, inexpensive path to improved efficiency, increased staff safety, happy pets, and clients who feel a bond with your business. Learn how in this fun and fascinating DVD taken from a half-day seminar given by veterinarian and animal behaviorist Dr. Sophia Yin, author of The Small Animal Veterinary Nerdbook and Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification of Cats and Dogs. Many pets arrive at our hospitals, shelters and at the groomer’s afraid and confused. Careless or unskilled handling of these animals often leads to negative consequences: dog and cat bites and scratches are the top cause of worker compensation claims in veterinary hospitals and shelters; "difficult" pets are time consuming to treat; clients lose confidence in petcare professionals they see struggling to control their pets; and, worst of all, hospital staff may unknowingly send animals away medically improved but behaviorally worse—more fearful of veterinary visits, or even more fearful of people generally. But it doesn’t have to be this way! This seminar teaches you how to enhance your practice by making dogs and cats feel secure, on the ride to the hospital, in the waiting room, in the exam room, and during treatments. Learn to greet pets appropriately, to handle them with finesse instead of force, to recognize when they are fearful and about to bite, and to understand what you inadvertently may be doing to increase their fear. You’ll also learn techniques to train animals to enjoy procedures they once feared. Through Dr. Yin’s seminar you’ll gain confidence in your handling skills, credibility with your clients, and a more caring connection with your patients.
