Using the live dogs, cats, horses and cows as models for learning how to perform a physical examination, this laboratory course teaches the skills of observation, auscultation, palpation, and percussion as well as related basic diagnostic procedures. The body systems are examined sequentially and follow the order of study in Foundation Course I.
