This practical one day course will focus on the generation and interpretation of basic cardiac ultrasound images in the dog. The course will provide an overview of the equipment and facilities needed and cover the techniques used in the generation and interpretation of right parasternal long and short axis echocardiographic images. The delegates will enjoy the opportunity to carry our echocardiography in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science's teaching laboratory with a significant proportion of the time dedicated to "hands-on" echo.

Topics to be covered include:
- Facilities and equipment required for basic echocardiography in small animal practice
- Generation of right parasternal long and short axis vies of the canine heart
- Interpretation of right parasternal long and short axis vies of the canine heart
- Echocardiography in context – case examples of patients with cardiac disease and the role of echocardiography in diagnosis and management.

Learning objectives:
- The basic principles of echocardiography, the physics behind image generation and the applied anatomy of the heart
- How to select the most appropriate equipment for small animal echocardiography
- How to consistently generate right parasternal long and short axis views of the canine heart
- Interpretation of right parasternal long and short axis views of the canine heart
