Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book 'gives a very basic rundown of the clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment of a whole range of conditions...all in a compact volume of 783 pages. It provides a very basic veterinary background for the work that nurses are carrying out on a day-to-day basis, giving them a greater understanding of the clinical decision making that goes on behind the cases that they manage." Veterinary Times, July 2008 (Previous Edition)

"This manual provides an overview of the various conditions which can affect all 'companion' animals ( this includes dogs and cats, exotics, birds, reptiles, horses but also goats and sheep). The diseases are classified by system and each chapter describes clearly what to look for and what to expect. Easy- peasy then! Numerous "Tech Alert" boxes are used to highlight important tips and there is a review questionnaire at the end of each chapter."

Preface

Excerpt from the Preface

Veterinary technicians serve a wide variety of functions in the clinical setting. Although they are not diagnosticians, they do assist the veterinarian, through assessment and laboratory procedures, in arriving at a diagnosis. Perhaps their most important functions are in treatment planning/implementation and client/patient follow-up and compliance. To perform these duties effectively, they need a strong understanding of diseases.

While teaching a course on small animal diseaes for veterinary technology students at Fairmont State College, I discovered there was no text written expressly for the veterianary technician that covered this material. I realized that a handy reference was needed that offered a description of the most common diseases encountered in a small animal practice... Just as important, this book seeks to delineate the role of the technician in all phases of diagnosis, treatment, and client communication... -- Alleice Summers
