BIBLIOGRAPHY

When we think of learning about animal diseases, we often remember lectures at vet
school or continuing education courses which have presented information through the
eyes of the disease—here is how the disease looks, here is how to make its diagnosis,
here is how to treat it. Or we think of lists of differential diagnoses associated with various
presenting signs or physical examination findings. This method of learning information is
efficient and comprehensive but lacks the benefit of being attached to a memorable story.
Veterinary medicine lends itself to learning through the stories of our patients—the animals
for whom we are advocates, giving a voice to their silence.
Learning from a case helps to contextualise information and provides authenticity to the
experience. As learners, if we put our minds in the position they will be in when we need
the information, we will be better able to recall the information we need when we need_it.
Learning from the story of the animal itself will maximise the chances that we will be
able to bring benefit to our own patients in the future. This is the aim which underpins our
whole job as veterinarians.
With that in mind we have written this book, a guide to clinical cardiorespiratory medicine,
divided into a series of journeys taken by genuine patients. This is not a book of differential
diagnoses, but a book of stories. The backbone of each case is thoracic imaging, helping
us to obtain a diagnosis, assess prognosis, and guide therapy. Our experience and opinion
will be presented, alongside crucial points from scientific literature to back up decisionmaking
along the way. We hope that reading these bite-sized cases is like seeing practice—
being able to review key discussion points from each case, with top tips and advice
given along the way. We hope that what we have learnt through postgraduate training and
experience on the clinic floor can help you to feel more confident in approaching cardiothoracic
cases in your own jobs, and to better help the animals under your care.
