Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“All in all, this should prove to be a key book for veterinarians seeing athletic patients, or even for dogs with everyday injuries that might benefit from these therapies.” (Veterinary Information Network, 1 June 2013)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: Intended as a guide to canine sports medicine and related concepts, this book addresses exercise physiology, performance-related injury, and physical therapy in dogs.
Purpose: It is a compilation of current best practices and foundation for advancement of understanding in this field. As the only such resource in a relatively new but rapidly expanding field, this book serves an important role in documenting the work so far and corralling experiential information in a clinically pertinent format.
Audience: The intended audience includes a range of animal health professionals sharing an interest in restoring, maintaining, and maximizing the physical abilities of canine athletes and dogs experiencing diverse health-related, injury-related, or age-related physical limitations. Authors of extensive experience and expertise have developed this state-of-the-art reference.
Features: Initial chapters define the canine athlete and concepts of normal movement as well as pertinent elements of physiology and nutrition. Subsequent chapters address general concepts and terminology in canine rehabilitation and present an overview of procedures and equipment employed in managing canine patients. Chapters then cover assessment and therapy of disorders by body region. The book concludes with chapters on related topics such as imaging, chiropractic care, and pain management. Each chapter begins with a highlighted summary of its content. Multiple case studies, each set apart in a highlighted section, are presented in each chapter aligned with the general concepts demonstrated or required for management of the cases. The book is generously illustrated with color plates and diagrams of exceptional pertinence and effectiveness in demonstrating the concepts. A glossary of terms with concise definitions would be a useful complement to the more extended treatment of terminology that appears throughout the book.
Assessment: This is a masterful achievement in content, readability, and usefulness. The text is perfectly illustrated with images of extraordinary quality. The authors have successfully addressed the needs of a diverse audience of animal health professionals faced with a wide range of injuries and other physical disabilities in their canine patients.
