Cardiorespiratory Diseases Of The Dog And Cat

By M. W. S. Martin and Brendan Corcoran

Cardiorespiratory Diseases of the Dog and Cat PDF. Cardiac cases represent a large proportion of the small animal patients in most practices. However patients often initially merely show symptoms of a “chest complaint”, which could represent either a cardiac or pulmonary problem. This book provides a practical guide for practitioners faced with such cases. Written in an easily accessible note form the book uses a practical approach considering the symptoms first and then the possible causes.
