Composed of a website and a companion book, this package demonstrates how to do accurate clinical evaluations of the heart and lungs in the examining room. The website offers step-by-step instructions on how to identify, interpret, and differentiate heart and lung sounds in dogs and cats. Made by using a heart sound simulator as well as recordings from patients, the website also covers heart murmurs and arrhythmias.

The book expands on the website content and offers clear, concise illustrations of electrocardiograms (ECGs) and polarcardiograms (PCGs). It also includes pretests and post-tests to ensure thorough understanding of the material, as well as content on properties of sound, the stethoscope, and keys to successful auscultation.
