About this book

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 BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Dermatology 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 BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Dermatology covers the major skin diseases of dogs and cats caused by bacteria, yeast, fungi and parasites.

“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.”
