This manual takes a problem-oriented approach to endocrinology, focusing on the conditions most commonly seen in general practice. Practical information is laid out for ease of access, with diagnostic algorithms and treatment protocols acting as aide-mémoires for the busy clinician.
As well as providing a ready reference for veterinary surgeons in general practice, the manual will be useful for students, nurses and graduates embarking on further qualifications. The fifth edition consolidates background information on endocrine systems with advice for the investigation and treatment of disorders affecting them.
