Small Animal Ophthalmology: What's Your Diagnosis?
February 2011, Wiley-Blackwell
Adopting a case-based approach, chapters are built around common ophthalmic presentations and are directed by questions to test the reader's ability to interpret clinical history, ophthalmic photographs and diagnostic results in order to provide differential diagnoses, diagnostic plans and treatment options.
For veterinary students, this book is an ideal guide to how ophthalmology cases are handled in the clinical setting. For veterinary practitioners, it is an innovative and interesting way to increase their knowledge and skills in clinical ophthalmology.
