The ABCDs of Small Animal Cardiology highlights the new veterinary classification scheme for heart disease and heart failure. The authors believe that dividing heart disease into stages improves both diagnosis and management and provides a starting point for developing an individual management plan. Parts of the manual were coauthored with other experts in veterinary cardiology, acupuncture and rehabilitation, and anesthesia and pain management.

"This manual is an excellent resource for veterinarians, putting the knowledge of small animal cardiology specialists at their fingertips," said Mark Stephenson, DVM, president of LifeLearn. "We believe that The ABCDs of Small Animal Cardiology will allow veterinary teams to provide specialized canine and feline cardiology care, thereby practicing better medicine."

Material is presented in bulleted outline form to make it easy to use when diagnosing and managing heart disease within a busy general practice.
