Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: C. W. Smith, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This handbook is divided into two major sections — fundamentals of neurology and clinical problems (signs and symptoms). The first part includes history and examination, localization of lesions, disorders of micturition, and confirming a diagnosis. The second part addresses disorders of limbs, face, tongue, esophagus, larynx, ears, involuntary movement, eyes, coma, seizures, pain, and diffuse nature.
Purpose: The authors indicate that neurology should be approached logically and in the simplest way, and by making this handbook simple and easy to use, they are moderately successful in achieving this goal. The handbook is a revision of the second edition published in 1993 and includes another author bringing new experience and knowledge to this edition.
Audience: The authors target veterinary students and practitioners for this handbook. Even though veterinary practitioners may find this handbook helpful, residents and specialists in neurology and neurosurgery may be a better audience. The authors are credible authorities in neurology.
Features: This handbook contains sufficient illustrations, tables, and case histories to help the reader understand neurology. The case histories are especially helpful to illustrate the information. The information is complete and current and includes an abundance of references to whet the appetite of the most astute reader.
Assessment: This handbook provides a current, logical, and as simple as is possible, text for a complex subject. An abundance of illustrations, charts, and tables make the handbook user friendly. Case histories help the reader to understand and apply the information in everyday practice. Veterinary students, neurology and neurosurgery residents, neurologists, and neurosurgeons will find the handbook to be a welcome addition to their library.

Louise C. Abbott
This second edition book (the first edition was published in 1983) describes the fundamentals of veterinary neurology and discusses the signs and symptoms of a wide variety of clinical neurological problems. Surgical techniques are not described, but medical therapies and recommendations for surgery are included in this edition. Although the authors do not specifically state the purpose of this book, the apparent intention is to provide an introduction to general veterinary neurology. As such, this book is well written and provides a great deal of information without unnecessary detail. This book appears to be aimed at a wide audience, ranging from the veterinary student to the general practitioner. Anyone with an interest in an introduction or general review of veterinary neurology would find it very useful. The black-and-white illustrations, primarily line diagrams, are of excellent quality. All chapters have been extensively revised and current references have been added to all chapters. Several chapters from the first edition have been dropped or combined and two new chapters (Disorders of Involuntary Movement; Pain) have been added. The numerous and very useful summary tables and lists have been enhanced. The tables of disease conditions listed by species are especially worthwhile for the reader and information on many new diseases has been included. More information concerning neurologic disease has been provided for large animals in this edition, although the text still emphasizes small animal neurology. Very little information is provided on neurologic diseases of the goat, though this probably reflects the paucity of references in the literature rather than oversight by theauthors. The authors have very successfully updated this second edition while preserving many of the excellent features of the first edition. The revisions to the summary tables in various chapters have been very helpful while maintaining the overall organization of the first edition. The excellent case histories that were present in the first edition have been maintained in this second edition. The revisions in this second edition, the new material that has been added, and the updated references in each chapter justify replacing the previous edition.
