The field of infectious diseases in veterinary medicine is both rewarding and challenging, and this book offers small animal veterinarians a lifeline by balancing relevant background, guidance and optimizing efficiency. It provides a pathway for clinicians through this complex field by highlighting the most clinically relevant aspects of a wide range of diseases, and granting them consideration for placement on dog and cat differential lists. Organized according to a system-based structure, all the major clinically affected systems are covered along with a catch-all multisystem chapter for infectious diseases that escape easy classification.
The book is clinically oriented, based on experience underpinned by published research data. Pathogen-specific information enables rational choice of diagnostics, therapy, and prognostication for a complete list of small animal infectious diseases, that includes bacterial, viral, parasitic/protozoal and fungal pathogens. This concise reference guide will be an invaluable tool for clinicians as they develop their understanding of, and ability to communicate about, infectious diseases of the dog and cat.
- Provides a clinically oriented quick reference guide
- Includes all major small animal infectious diseases
- Contains over 300 superb color illustrations
