Covering both classical modalities of echocardiography and newer techniques, Clinical Echocardiography of the Dog and Cat shows how to assess, diagnose, and treat canine and feline heart disease. A clinical approach demonstrates how
these modalities may be used to acquire images, and then how you can

manage patient care with those findings. The print book includes a
companion website with 50 videos of cardiac ultrasound exams and procedures.
