Studies and Publications from CVCA Doctors
At CVCA Cardiac Care for Pets, we strive to provide excellent medical care. This is not only through the daily care of our patients but also through input into the ever-growing base of knowledge of the veterinary cardiac patient. We are proud to contribute to veterinary literature through our collaboration within our team and our veterinary academic and industry partners.
Our very own Steven Rosenthal, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology) has co-authored a chapter in a new reference book, Clinical Small Animal Internal Medicine, edited by David Bruyette! This is a handy text for veterinary professionals and covers a wide array of clinically-relevant material!
