There are many orthopaedic differences between cats and dogs, yet most books on the market tend to concentrate on dogs rather than cats. This book, the first of its kind, aims to provide a practical and user friendly guide to feline orthopaedics. The book includes highly structured fully referenced text that provides a concise, straightforward guide to the recognition and management of specific diseases and conditions. Combining their experience in practice and education, the authors have produced a book to appeal to veterinarians in general and specialist feline practice, and to students.
