I have a Littman Master Cardiology stethoscope. The vets I used to work for bought it for me when I was accepted into nursing school. I love it! I heard a grade 1 murmur on my cat before anyone else could. But I probably would never have bought one for myself, since I was pretty content with most stethoscopes I used in the past.

I kind of grinned because I knew I shouldn't be doing it that way in the first place! :blush:
Ay, there's the rub - no pun intended! While it is fantastic on obliterating outside noise while you listen, if you listen over fabric, you hear the fabric! Definitely!
