About this book

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."
- Veterinary Times, 25 June 2012

"This small, fresh ophthalmology handbook is a new addition to the What's your Diagnosis? book series, published by Wiley-Blackwell [...] It is altogether thoughtfully done and wholly relevant to all those practicing in the UK and further afield."
- Journal of Small Animal Practice, 1 November 2012

"Basic information on common and uncommon eye conditions enables clinicians to develop appropriate diagnostic and treatment plans and step-by-step photos make this a top technical recommendation suitable for any clinic or vet's collection!."
- The Midwest Book Review, 1 November 2011
