This complete canine pathology guide is intended for animal care professionals, veterinary students, and health practitioners interested in advancing their understanding of the canine body in the state of disease.

Canine Pathology and Diseases reviews both pathology and pathophysiology of a particular illness. Pathology describes an abnormal or undesired condition, whereas pathophysiology explains functional changes associated with a disease or injury.

By the completion of the course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of more than one hundred illnesses and conditions, their causes, clinical signs and symptoms, developmental patterns, information on prevention, and available treatments. Particular emphasis is placed on age-related conditions of a canine animal: arthritis and reduced mobility, kidney and liver diseases, digestive and immune disorders, cancer and formation of lumps and masses, heart disease, sight, and hearing loss to name just a few.

Completion of the course gave me the confidence to talk to my clients about their dog's health concerns. I gained a deeper understanding of how poor health can be affecting dogs behavior and habits.

I can't begin to tell you how much I'm loving this course! An abundance of information is presented in an engaging and structural way, not only explaining the causes of each condition, but also current treatments and advice on prevention.

I want to compliment LCO on creating an interesting and efficient course. I do a lot of traveling for my job and having the flexibility to follow the study while on the road, with no deadline to finish, was really helpful. I was pleasantly surprised that my course instructor was always prompt to answer my questions. Thanks a lot!
