Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a practical guide to the diagnosis and medical management of respiratory disorders of the dog and cat.
Purpose: The well-thought-out design makes the book an effective teaching tool and one that will encourage and support practitioners, especially the less experienced, in addressing respiratory disorders in their small animal patients.
Audience: The book is written to meet the needs of veterinary students and general practitioners and, by intent, excludes much of the detail that would be necessary for specialty training. The author's significant clinical and teaching experience has fostered a talent for identifying and meeting the needs of the intended audience.
Features: The initial chapters cover disease localization, diagnostic techniques, and treatment options for patients with respiratory disease. Subsequent chapters describe specific disease processes, including pathophysiology, characteristic signalment, history, examination findings, appropriate diagnostic testing, treatment, and prognosis, and are organized by region of the respiratory system (nose, airways, lung parenchyma, etc.) affected. The book is fully illustrated with pertinent examples of physical exam abnormalities, cytology, radiographs, and CT and endoscopic images. Although the resolution of some of the endoscopic images is not optimal (presumably acquired with older equipment) , all present useful examples of disease processes.
Assessment: The character of this book is best captured by the phrase "cut to the chase." It is masterfully written to present all pertinent information with a remarkable economy of words, providing a thorough but concise guide to clinical respiratory medicine in the dog and cat.

From the Publisher
"Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay the book is to say that I would recommend it equally to undergraduate students studying canine and feline respiratory disease and practitioners wanting to know and learn a bit more about the subject and glean practical tips that they can employ in their day-to-day practice." (Veterinary Record, February 2011)

"Clinical Canine and Feline Respiratory Medicine is concisely written, easy to read, and up-to-date. There are many excellent photographs illustrating technical procedures and diagnostic findings. Techniques such as transtracheal wash and chest-tube placement are described in sufficient detail to enable practitioners to perform these techniques. This textbook takes a sensible and functional approach to respiratory medicine and clarifies a subject matter many find confusing. This text is highly recommended for any small animal practitioner." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010)

"The text book is enjoyable to read and fulfils the stated aim of the author, which is to provide an authoritive, cohesive and complete discussion of all the elements needed to diagnose and treat small animal respiratory diseases, specifically in a user-friendly, single author volume, and the author is to be congratulated in doing so." (The Australian Veterinary Journal, January/February 2011)

"General practitioners and vet students receive a reference that uses a consistent layout and an easy at-a-glance format, along with black and white and color diagnosis photos. No vet's collection should be without this." (The Bookwatch, January 2011)

"The well-thought-out design makes the book an effective teaching tool and one that will encourage and support practitioners, especially the less experienced, in addressing respiratory disorders in their small animal patients. The character of this book is best captured by the phrase ‘cut to the chase.' It is masterfully written to present all pertinent information with a remarkable economy of words, providing a thorough but concise guide to clinical respiratory medicine in the dog and cat." (Doody's, November 2010)
