Additional Journal Article List 2015-Large Animal

From the list at http://acvecc.org/blog/recommended-reading-lists/: "This list contains articles 3-10 years old from core journals and articles within the last 10 years from non-core journals and is designed to bridge a perceived gap in the recommended reading between recent journal articles, non-core journals and textbooks.  It contains article the committee deems likely to inform and impact the practice of veterinary ECC. We aim to keep this list to <100 articles and will review and update it annually.  Large animal candidates should appreciate that the majority of these articles are non-species specific and shared with small animal candidates. This means that they can be used for questions on the general multiple-choice exam.  Please also be aware that while the majority of the questions on the examination will be based on literature from the additional article list and the recommended reading list some questions may reference other appropriate sources pertinent to our specialty."
