Level and Prerequisites:
course will be open to veterinarians

in basic canine anatomy and physiology.
VIN CE Course:
Open to veterinarians.
This course has been RACE approved for veterinarians.
Coughing is a common presenting complaint in small animal practice.
It can be caused by cardiac or respiratory disease.
Since these diseases are treated differently, successful treatment
requires determining the cause of the cough.
This course discusses the diagnostic approach to a coughing patient
so that the general practitioner can come up with an optimal treatment plan.
This course consists of one (1) ninety (90) minute Real Time Session, supplemental library materials,
interactive message board discussions, and a mandatory end-of-course test.
Successful completion (scoring 80% or better) on the end-of-course test is required
to earn a certificate of completion for the course.
*The lecture portion of this course will be an audio presentation, please be prepared to listen.
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to
- list the most common causes of coughing in dogs seen in general practice.
- create a diagnostic workup for coughing - including the uses and
limitations of each test.
- successfully differentiate between cardiac and respiratory disease
as the cause for a coughing patient.
- formulate a treatment plan for a particular coughing patient.
Course materials will be available
in the course library prior to each Real Time Session.
Required Textbook(s): There is no required textbook for this course.
