Understanding how different breeds vary both in health and in their unique predispositions to certain diseases is critical in veterinary medicine. In this session, we will cover how different breeds can exhibit varying degrees of "normal" in clinical pathology, as well as an in-depth discussion of certain need-to-know breed-related disease predispositions.

  • -Explore varying hematologic "normals" for different dog and cat breeds that are vital to know in vet med
  • -Be aware of different breed-related disease processes that can be diagnosed via microscopy (hematology, cytology, and urinalysis)
