Using clinical cases to illustrate principles, this subject introduces students to the normal structure and function of the hepatobiliary system and urinary tract of the domestic animals, the disease processes that may affect these systems, and the causes and potential consequences of such disease. Students will develop skills in the clinical evaluation of the liver and urinary tract, including the selection and analysis of diagnostic tests of hepatic and renal function.

Intended learning outcomes

This subject aims to equip students with a thorough understanding of the normal structure and function of the hepatobiliary system and urinary tract of domestic animals and the disease mechanisms that can cause structural injury and/or dysfunction of these body systems. After satisfactorily completing the subject, students should be capable of recognising the clinical signs that are suggestive of dysfunction and to conduct and interpret appropriate diagnostic investigations of these systems.
