Designed as a quick and practical reference for the busy general practitioner, this manual is also perfect as a teaching tool for veterinary students. The content reflects both a review of the current literature as well as the authors' opinions and current management strategies. Much of the material is presented in a bulleted outline style to make it easy to use and helpful in the diagnosis and management of simple and complicated heart disease within a busy general practice.
The book is organized into seven sections beginning with a general overview to the diagnosis and therapy of heart disease, followed by in-depth chapters focussing on diagnosis of cardiovascular disease; emergency guidelines for acute congestive heart failure; considerations in chronic heart failure management; diagnosis and management for complications of stages c and d heart disease; specific diseases and conditions of the cardiovascular system; and sedation and anesthesia for patients with heart disease.
