Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revised and updated textbook (first edition, 1987) for veterinary students and practitioners, providing the core information necessary to effectively evaluate the major medical problems in dogs and cats. It relates clinical signs to the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease and describes the appropriate causes (ruleouts) for clinical signs or problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This book fills a gap that exists between the quick reference texts that have proliferated recently and more extensive medical reference texts. It provides an approach to problems in manageable and meaningful chunks to create conceptual understanding, rather than providing an outline of facts and recommendations. The book is probably most useful for veterinary students and new graduates overwhelmed by the amount of information in other texts but facing animals with problems in their clinics. It would also be a handy off-the-shelf reference for practitioners faced with rare problems or hoping to avoid overlooking a key differential diagnosis. Students who work through the book in a thoughtful manner can be expected to gain skills in problem identification and the mechanistic diagnostic approach. Working through the clinical vignettes also strikes me as an excellent way to prepare for the national licensing examination, with more learning gained than anticipated from practicing multiple-choice questions. In summary, this book should be an excellent investment for veterinary students and small animal practitioners." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, March 2010)

"The new edition includes the addition of case reports, and I felt it helps give the reader a clearer picture of the patient and the development of the thought process as it progresses through the case during the work-up. There have been updates to diagnostic tests that are reflective of the changes and improvements that have been made in procedures as they are performed in the veterinary field.... The format is an excellent way to help teach how to think through a case and the logical steps to thoroughly work through it." (VSPN, October 2010)

"Overall I feel it would be a good text for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians alike to help teach or reinforce many points to be considered when presented with a patient, including clinical signs throughout the disease process." (Veterinary Information Network, October 2010)

“The pathophysiological background in each section is certainly useful information and the clinical vignettes make surprisingly pleasant reading-a bit like Aesop’s Fables for vets.” (Veterinary Practice, April 2010)
