Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen L Campbell, DVM, MS, DACVIM, DACVD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This excellent book on equine dermatology is described as a second edition, but it has been extensively updated with nearly twice the content of the 1999 edition. The book is divided into three parts: part 1 (chapters 1-4) covers basic principles of equine dermatology; part 2 (chapters 5-18) consists of disease profiles; and part 3 (chapter 19) details syndromes in equine dermatology. The book includes a CD-ROM with PowerPoint slides and over 300 extra illustrations.
Purpose: The aims are to give the readers confidence in their ability to differentiate between normal variations and dermatological disease, knowledge of effective diagnostic skills and appropriate treatments, and a reference that provides easily accessible information. These are worthy objectives and this book will enhance the ability of readers to successfully diagnose and treat dermatological diseases affecting horses.
Audience: Written for veterinary students and practitioners, the book will be of particular interest to veterinarians with an interest in equine dermatology. The author is a diplomate of the European College of Equine Internal Medicine and is recognized as an expert in equine dermatology and oncology.
Features: The book is richly illustrated with over 650 color figures plus extensive tables and boxes to summarize important information. Additionally, the author has devised a unique system of "25 key point codes" to alert readers to helpful facts about the identification, diagnosis, prognosis, and management of each disease. The weakest feature is the index, which could be more comprehensive.
Assessment: This is a must-have book for everyone with an interest in equine dermatology. It has been extensively updated and is organized in a very reader friendly format. For example, the discussion of each disease includes a profile (overview), clinical signs, differential diagnosis, diagnostic confirmation, treatment, and a table with key points. However, it is not as extensively referenced as Equine Dermatology, Scott and Miller (Elsevier, 2003), and those wanting a more thorough discussion of the diseases will want to own both books.
