College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineKirk NussNo other courses teach Companion Animal Medicine at this veterinary and medical level, so outside consult seems unnecessary.
This course will be taught by existing faculty in the Department of Clinical Sciences, as identified in the syllabus.

This course represents an overview of common medical and surgical diseases of companion animals. Pathophysiology, diagnostic evaluation and medical and surgical management of diseases in nephrology, urology, oncology, respiratory medicine, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, dermatology, cardiology and endocrinology is contained within this course.


Student Learning Outcomes

  • When given the relevant history and physical exam findings for a dog or cat with a complaint pertaining to the respiratory, renal, urinary, cardiac/cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, dermatologic, or endocrine systems, or infectious disease/oncology issues, students will be able to:



    Identify the chief complaint and major problems

    List the major differential diagnoses

    Develop a diagnostic plan

    Interpret the results of relevant diagnostic tests

    Formulate an appropriate treatment plan

    Create a plan for patient follow-up and reevaluation

mlnosbis 11/18/2015: Instructor needs to provide the consultation summary for each of the individuals listed above, if going to list consultation evidence. Only related (somewhat) course is ANS 400- Companion Animal Management, but that seems more like an introductory course while this course focuses more on medical and surgical issues of companion animals. No consultation with ANS required?

ghodge 11/20/2015 I changed the initial enrollment to 10. I change the component type to Lecture & Lab based on the syllabus. I changed the contact hours to 5 based on three credit hours, but this does not match the syllabus. Please ask program to clarify. I agree we need to show the outcome of the consultations. Not ready for ABGS review. Return to program

ghodge 12/08/2015 Ready for ABGS reviewers. We need to clarify CIM Help on anticipated enrollment

ABGS Reviewers:
-Free of errors
-Note that Vet School courses are 13 weeks.
-Repeatable for credit 99 times. Is this correct? Response: CIM error, 99 is only option.
kenuss (Mon, 23 Nov 2015 17:22:56 GMT): Removed internal consults. We had previously been advised that our own internal consults were not needed; we just failed to remove these before submitting. Updated per semester back to 1. I thought per semester indicates how many sections offered and the per section indicates how many students per section. As a core DVM course, it will always be offered only once per semester to our full class of 100 students (give or take attrition). If my understanding is wrong, let me know.
kenuss (Mon, 23 Nov 2015 17:59:26 GMT): Lecture times should have been 3 lectures, 1 lab (there are 2 labs offered each week, but the class is split into 1/2, so each student only takes 1 lab). This gets us back to 4 contact hours. Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully, this resolves.
