Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book is easy to read and has an excellent index for finding information quickly and easily.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2014)

“In conclusion, this is an excellent book, and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in ear disease.  The content is suitable for students, general practitioners and specialists (I’ve found it very useful). It is excellent value even at the current list prices, and a quick online search revealed some good bargains. Otitis is very common and this book will help clinicians have a major impact on the welfare of their patients.”  (Veterinary Dermatology, 15 November 2013)

“In my opinion, the authors have succeeded in providing a clear, superbly illustrated atlas on ear diseases, which makes a useful addition to the bookshelf of every small animal practice.”  (Veterinary Record, 21 September 2013)

“This collection of more than 400 clinical images explained by a dermatologist and a surgeon represents a very nice way for practitioners and vet students alike to learn more on ear diseases, their diagnosis and treatments.”  (Vets Today, 1 June 2013)

“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.”  (Doody’s, 17 May 2013)

“Any vet student or practitioner will find this an outstanding key to assessing ear conditions and making an accurate diagnosis.”  (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 May 2013)

“This is a carefully thought out and well written publication . . . Photos of an excellent quality complete the picture of a well turned out atlas at a reasonable price missing only referral reading lists.”  (EJCAP, 1 March 2013)

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.
