Van Sluijs. Description The medical history and physical examination are the most important cornerstones of clinical diagnosis.
This is the only veterinary book devoted to a description of methods applicable to companion animals. The methods described are used in the veterinary schools of Utrecht the Netherlands and Ghent Belgium , but their effectiveness and usefulness is recognized by many visiting staff members and students from other veterinary schools in Europe and North America.
Central to this book is the concept that the examination should be as efficient as possible. The descriptions of the examination are very detailed and enhanced with many high quality colour illustrations.
The accompanying DVD includes video clips of a variety of examinations and forms in PDF format that can be used for determining the results when carrying out the medical history and physical examination in companion animals. It is meant to give veterinarians and veterinary students the tools to do an efficient and successful short initial examination to define the problems presented by the owner.

Abstract The number of companion animal wellness visits in private practice has been decreasing, and one important factor cited is the lack of effective communication between veterinarians and pet owners regarding the importance of preventive care.
Checklists have been widely used in many fields and are especially useful in areas where a complex task must be completed with multiple small steps, or when cognitive fatigue is evident.
The use of checklists in veterinary medical education has not yet been thoroughly evaluated as a potential strategy to improve communication with pet owners regarding preventive care. A group of students using provided checklists was compared to a control group of students who did not use checklists on the basis of their medical record notes from the visits.
The students using the checklists were routinely more complete in several areas of a wellness visit vs. However, neither group of students routinely discussed follow-up care recommendations such as frequency or timing of follow-up visits.
The study authors recommend considering checklist use for teaching and implementing wellness in companion animal primary care veterinary clinical teaching settings. Keywords: checklists, wellness visits, Partners for Healthy Pets, companion animal, preventive health-care guidelines Introduction Wellness visits are an important part of routine veterinary care for dogs and cats.
Despite that, the number of veterinary visits for both dogs and cats has been decreasing over the last several years 1. The decrease in visits and gap in veterinary care for companion animals were attributed to several different factors. These survey results highlight the disconnect in understanding of the value of routine wellness visits and preventative care between veterinary professionals and the pet owning public 2 , 4 , 5.
The PHP provides resources for veterinarians to help identify specific communication gaps in their practice and better address them in a systematic manner. High-reliability organizations HROs such as aviation and nuclear fields have found checklists to be an effective way to reliably perform complex tasks in fields where higher levels of stress and fatigue are present.
In particular, aviation has adapted checklist use to become a mandatory part of safe flight protocol 6 , 7. Mandatory aviation checklist use can include a variety of normal activities.
Introduction of newer electronic based checklists have increased efficiency even further 8 , 9. Use of checklists in human medicine has been more recent and has been less wide spread than other HROs. This may be partly due to a perception that medical tasks are too complex to be broken down into a simple checklist
