This short training course aims to provide basic concepts and principles of cardiology in small animal practice. Specifically, it will provide basis for pathophysiological changes associated with the disease as well as basic rationale for cardiac medications.
Cytopathology is a relatively cheap, rapid and non-invasive diagnostic technique in small animal practice.

The short training course is intended for small animal practitioners who are interested in developing and improving their skill in the use of radiography for diagnosis of diseases and disorders in small animals.
Electrocardiography enables practitioners to diagnose cardiac problems originating from altered electroconductivity of the heart. It is an essential skill for all veterinary practitioners to have. This short training course is designed to guide participants in understanding the electrical rhythmicity of the heart, how to obtain the ECG, and how to use the ECG to diagnose cardiac abnormalities that alter this rhythmicity.
A significant number of clinical cases presented in a veterinary facility can come from orthopedic cases. This short training course will guide the practitioner on the management of orthopedic cases specifically on the surgical approach to different fractures and dislocations. Selected orthopedic procedures will be performed in a canine cadaver such as intramedullary pinning, bone plating and femoral head ostectomy.
