Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jason B. Pieper, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book provides a thorough evaluation and illustration of common ear diseases affecting the dog and cat, including a thorough description of surgical procedures.
Purpose: It is intended as a complete illustrated atlas of ear disease as well as a guide for inexperienced clinicians through basic techniques and a detailed explanation of the more complex procedures for more experienced surgeons.
Audience: The book is written for general practitioners who have an interest in dermatology as well as surgery. The authors are board certified in dermatology and surgery, respectively.
Features: It details the anatomy of the ear canal as well as the diseases affecting the pinna, external, middle, and internal ear canal and covers the appropriate diagnostic techniques. This, combined with the surgical procedures, is what makes this book unique. The anatomy and surgical procedures are covered well in great detail. The pictures are of extremely high quality with great detail. Unfortunately, there are no treatments indicated for any of the ear diseases.
Assessment: This book is very thorough and covers the topic concisely with the exception of treatment indications. Other than that, this atlas is a great addition to a practitioner's library.
