Series: What's Your Diagnosis?
272 pages, 80 colour photos
Small Animal Ophthalmology: What's Your Diagnosis? is one of the first books in an exciting new series that combines problem-based learning, case studies, and questions and answers. Designed specifically for veterinarians and students, the series aims to present material in a format to enhance critical thinking and understanding. 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, Small Animal Ophthalmology: What's Your Diagnosis? 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.
"The main strengths of this book are its user-friendly nature and the extensive photo-documentation and comprehensive narrative provided for each case study, which also makes it unique among veterinary ophthalmology textbooks."
