One of the most common congenital heart conditions identified in dogs is patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Development of this condition can be difficult for students to envision primarily because the fetal circulatory system differs substantially from that of the adult animal. This multi-touch book uses a combination of interactive illustrations, images and audio files to help veterinary students understand the fetal circulation, how persistence of the ductus arteriosus can lead to profound hemodynamic derangements, clinical characteristics of the condition, its diagnosis, and how it is treated.
