Many factors must be analyzed when doing a complete veterinary diagnostic workup for a pond problem. In areas where two distinct seasons are characterized by a warm metabolically active and cold metabolically inactive period, the diagnostic workup should account for these variable factors. This lecture will focus on the problems encountered in varied clinical cases seen during the cold season and the treatment and outcome of these cases. Methods to prevent the problems seen during the cold season will be described.

Learning Objectives

1. Examine case studies to identify cold season health problems
