The softcover edition of this comprehensive and superbly illustrated book contains key updates to the text and references focused on common cardiovascular diseases and their management, including therapy for congestive heart failure and arrhythmias, reflecting the main developments in cardiology and in practice.
Since publication Dr Ware’s authoritative yet user friendly guide to cardiovascular diseases and disorders in the dog and cat has been widely praised. It is richly illustrated throughout by clinical colour photos, imaging and diagrams of the highest quality. Coverage includes evaluation techniques, investigative procedures, diagnosis, medical and surgical management options and methods.
This is an excellent, practical, clinical reference with quality images to enhance learning. It is appropriate for general practitioners, veterinary students, and residents. The new edition addresses several key updates in small animal cardiovascular medicine and should be a welcome addition to any reference library. (4 stars)
