This new volume of the Pet owner educational atlas collection on the cardiorespiratory system of dogs and cats pursues the same objective as the previous books: helping veterinary surgeons to communicate with pet owners. In addition, as its contents are focused on one single system, the specificity of the topics addressed will also help veterinary practitioners to consolidate and broaden their knowledge.
