From The CriticsReviewer: Kate F McGovern, BVetMed (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This update covers all aspects of ophthalmic disease in veterinary patients. Introductory chapters that detail principles of ophthalmology are followed by a chapter for each area of disease. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the vast majority of questions that are likely to arise in this area of veterinary practice.
Audience: Although it is targeted at general practitioners, the book is also suitable for veterinary students because it is well written, clear, and concise. It also would be a useful reference for veterinary ophthalmologists.
Features: It covers veterinary ophthalmology very thoroughly. The ophthalmic pharmacology chapter is well written and contains a lot more detail than other books. The explanations are excellent and the many illustrations are especially helpful in this field. A hardcover probably would be more practical, as this is a book that will be useful to have in a practitioner's truck.
Assessment: This book better covers a wider range of species than other books, many of which focus on small animals.
