    Highly recommended

    The newest addition to Blackwell Publishing's 'The 5-Minute Veterinary Consult: Clinical Companion' series, Canine And Feline Infectious Diseases And Parasitology is the impressively collaborative work of Stephen C. Barr and Dwight D. Bowman, two very highly qualified and respected experts in the field of canine and feline infectious diseases and parasite- related disorders. Written especially for clinicians and veterinary medicine students, Canine And Feline Infectious Diseases And Parasitology presumes the reader's basic familiarity with its particular topic as well as veterinary medicine in general. Each of the 105 chapters is devoted to a specific disease or parasite, arranged in alphabetical order color photographs add a valuable visual touch to this no-nonsense diagnostic and treatment manual. Highly recommended -- especially for professionals in the field.
