About this book

With a strong focus on the most commonly encountered veterinary internal medical problems, the first edition of this comprehensive reference has been praised for its conciseness, readability, expert authorship, problem-oriented approach, completeness, and illustration quality. The second edition continues the tradition with a focus on diagnostic approaches to clinical signs, diagnostic techniques, general therapeutics, and synopses of important disorders. Both students and practitioners alike will benefit from an emphasis on critical thinking and decision-making skills. For consistency and ease of use, each section has been developed by one author, and begins with a discussion of clinical signs related to the respective organ system, followed by diagnosis techniques and appropriate treatment. Features: * Problem-oriented approach simulates how veterinarians work in daily practice. * Comprehensive drug tables at the end of each section provide recommended dosages and indications for a variety of agents, for easy access to critical information. * Includes algorithms to promote decision-making skills based on clinical findings. * Liberally illustrated in both two- and four-colour to enhance the text and promote ease of use. New to this edition: * New section on Infectious Disease to reflect prevalence and the need for prevention, as well as treatment for an array of problems. * Expanded sections of gastrointestinal medicine, urinary medicine, and endocrinology. * Integration of toxicology to link exposure to noxious products with a variety of system disorders.
