VTMED 6524 - Feline Infectious Diseases

Spring. (Eight weeks) 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students.

S. C. Barr.

Emphasizes the clinical aspects of feline infectious diseases common to cats in North America and complements knowledge acquired in Foundation Courses IV and V. The overall objective is to provide details about specific infectious diseases a future small animal practitioner may need to know to effectively diagnose and treat diseases. Etiology, epidemiology (prevalence and transmission), pathogenesis, clinical findings, diagnosis, pathologic findings, therapy prevention, and public health considerations are emphasized. Most lectures are presented from a clinician’s point of view and therefore the material is oriented towards practical skills in managing clinical cases. Grades are based entirely on the result of a written (usually multiple-choice format) given in the final period.
