This program is the best option you can find to specialize in Veterinary Cardiology and make more accurate diagnoses"

Cardiovascular disorders in animals are highly significant because they can affect their quality of life and life expectancy. Advanced knowledge of Cardiology is an indispensable area of knowledge for large animal veterinarians: Ruminants (Cattle, Sheep, Goats), Camelids (Alpacas, Camels and Llamas), Swine (Pigs, Boars) and Equidae (Donkeys and Mules).

Cardiology in ruminants and swine has been limited for a long time due to the limited literature and diagnostic limitations, especially in advanced therapeutic procedures.

Regarding Equidae, a high number of horses are used for sporting purposes and cardiac pathologies limit their capacity and even force the animal to withdraw from competition. This is more evident the more demanding the equine is in terms of sport and cardiovascular effort. The management of food species differs, but it also affects their production capacity.

In recent years, there has been a boom in the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, such as intracardiac electrocardiograms, electrophysiological mapping in arrhythmias, pacemaker implantation and other intracardiac devices that can be implemented in larger species. These advances, which are necessary for an adequate clinical approach, are not available in books.

Therefore, this Postgraduate Certificate offers a comprehensive and well-developed syllabus that addresses advanced cardiology topics, providing detailed descriptions of the different procedures performed depending on the species, as well as a guide for clinical decision-making and patient selection.

This program covers the basics of Cardiology and delves into the most up-to-date and advanced techniques currently available, offering extensive and in-depth content. 

The Postgraduate Certificate in General Cardiology in Large Animals brings together all the detailed information in the different areas of Cardiology at a high and advanced level of specialization, and is taught by renowned professors in the field of internal medicine, cardiology and minimally invasive surgery in veterinary medicine.
