About this book

A compact, wide-ranging, illustrated guide, Urinary Stones in Small Animal Medicine deals with all aspects of urolithiasis in dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs-from aetiology and pathogenesis to diagnosis, treatment, and the prevention of disease recurrence. The authors introduce readers to treatment protocols developed from their own research and experience, and incorporate international state-of-the-art knowledge of the disease. Topics include: epidemiology, risks in companion animal husbandry, species-specific differences, breed dispositions, genetic causes, relevant anatomical points, clinical diagnosis, stone composition, clinical pathology, and treatment protocols.
