Description

Dermatology constitutes a large percentage of the daily caseload in small animal practice and can represent a challenge for the busy practitioner as many different diseases have similar presenting signs. Thus, a solid understanding of how to logically and sequentially approach a dermatological case is essential for a successful outcome.

The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Dermatology begins by providing the reader with a grounding in examination and investigative techniques. The second section of the Manual provides a problem-oriented approach to the common dermatological conditions encountered in practice, including erosions and ulcerations, focal and multifocal alopecia and pruritus. The final part of the Manual covers the major skin diseases of dogs and cats caused by bacteria, yeast, fungi and parasites.

Reviews

“The abundant color images, easy-to-follow tables and charts, and logical organization of the book, combined with its price, make this a necessity for the library of practising small animal veterinarians.”   (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 December  2012)

“There are clearly labelled examples of cytology preparations for almost every condition, meaning there are no excuses not to dust down the microscope and start carrying out impression smears and Sellotape strips on a daily basis.”  (Veterinary Record, 26 May 2012)

“I recommend that this book be put on the clinic bookshelves of general practices, close to the other well-known BSAVA manuals.”  (Aquivet Clinique Vétérinaire, 1 September 2012)
