Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Maureen McMichael, DVM, DACVECC (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book provides a thorough overview of cardiac disease in small animal patients. Essential sections on physical exam, ECG, and radiology accompany advanced concept sections on echocardiography, cardiac surgery, and pacemaker therapy. A broad range of cardiovascular topics discussed in depth make this an essential tool for the small animal practitioner. This edition has been "revised, edited, and updated" from the 2001 edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to "eliminate the aura of mystery that surrounds the diagnostic and therapeutic principles of veterinary cardiology." These are worthy objectives as cardiology is one of the most confusing and frustrating topics veterinary students encounter. This book meets the objectives by simplifying many complicated topics.
Audience: The book is written to allow "even the novice to make an intelligent assessment of a cardiac case...but comprehensive enough to serve as a reference for the advanced student." It does simplify complicated cardiovascular concepts and is very useful. The author is a very well known and respected cardiologist and the majority of the contributors are also well known, widely respected cardiologists.
Features: The three sections cover how to diagnose heart disease, an overview of specific disorders, and treatment. In addition, three appendixes that include a comprehensive list of cardiac drugs, dosages, uses, and side effects will be very helpful for practitioners. The best feature of the book is the in-depth treatment of the topics. The history and physical exam chapter is 21 pages, includes several tables with "causes of" titles, multiple key points to deliver information concisely, a section on stethoscopes (very valuable for veterinary students), and several pages on cardiac murmurs and heart sounds. Multiple algorithms and key point boxes throughout the book help boil down the subject matter into concise points. The only shortcoming is that the index does not include some valuable information that is in the book. When searching for arteriothromboembolism (ATE) in cats, the only reference is under "S" for saddle thrombus and one page (10f). However, several sections that cover ATE in cats are not listed in the index.
Assessment: This book is well written and the enthusiasm of the chapter authors for their topics comes through. It takes a complicated subject and makes it understandable and interesting. Even the chapters that would be considered basic (physical exam and history taking) have some interesting points and are well worth reading. This is one of the best cardiac books available and worth getting. It is valuable both for a thorough read through and as a reference.
From the Publisher
"This book of approximately 450 pages is an excellent review of the current state of the field of small animal cardiology. It is comprehensive and very thorough, up to date, has a scientific approach as well as being clinically oriented and it is very enjoyable to read. This book is an amazing accomplishment in the reviewer's opinion! (...) Boxes with frequently asked questions and key points help the reader to focus on the main issues, and complete this very valuable addition to small animal cardiology. Read it!"
- The European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, April 2009

    Missing Images

    This book is great and very helpful in understanding electrocardiology. I was extremely disappointed to find out that MANY of the images that are in the hardcopy are excluded from the digital copy. If I could do it again I would have purchased the hardcopy.
