Reaching a diagnosis in veterinary practice may seem fairly straightforward for an experienced clinician - most of the time. However, occasionally a difficult case comes along which not only leads to confusion, but undermines confidence. Why do we find some cases more difficult to diagnose than others? Have we been misled by the information provided by the client? Perhaps we have misunderstood the significance of, overlooked, or not asked for some piece of critical information? Confronted with a dyspnoeic cat, for example, did we forget to ask about any change in the meow? This might have alerted us to laryngeal cancer as the potential cause.
