Arrhythmias can produce a broad range of symptoms, from the barely perceptible to cardiovascular collapse. In the diagnostic work-up of arrhythmias, electrocardiography is the key element. If you’re like most vets, reading ECGs is probably a little bit of a nightmare! This course will help you develop a step by step guide to the interpretation of ECGs, starting with grasping the concepts of electrocardiography, and the normal ECG. Using case-based material, we will cover the most common ECG abnormalities in dogs and cats and review basic treatment strategies to help you provide better diagnostic and treatment options for your patients and clients.

Diagnose and manage a wide range of dermatological conditions with confidence, and enjoy those skin consults. Why be flustered when you can flourish? Skin conditions are common in companion animal practice. The underlying cause varies and may be complex, even in animals with similar clinical presentations such as pruritis or hair loss. Dermatology consultations will remain frustrating – for veterinarians and clients alike – if you always simply reach for the same treatment without identifying and addressing the underlying cause (or causes).
