This lecture will focus on thoracic auscultation in the dog and cat. We will cover cardiac sounds including murmurs (and how to grade them), clicks, gallop rhythms, split sounds and arrhythmias. We will also cover pulmonary sounds including crackles, wheezes and causes of dull lung sounds. We will end the lecture with a few case studies to correlate historical and clinical findings with auscultation findings.
