Every day, you are faced with a deluge of common and not-so-common problems. The 5-Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline offers authoritative coverage and timely answers to all your questions. It is a clinical reference loaded with practical information from leading experts in small animal practice.

This text is an important resource you can use every day. A quick reference resource of internal medicine in canine and feline health, the book includes: over 700 specific disorders...contributions from nearly 300 leading authorities in the field...and 17 section editors covering every specialty of small animal practice.

The 5-Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline is broken into three major sections:

  • The Problems is a concise, targeted focus on primary signs and symptoms for fast and accurate recognition.
  • The Laboratory offers profiles that give easy access to indications, interpretations, and pitfalls of each study to help you make better decisions and save time and money.
  • The Diseases alphabetically lists every common condition you manage in the dog and cat, as well as less common ones, so you'll be prepared no matter what shows up in your waiting room.
All the major topics are listed alphabetically in a consistent one- or two-page format. Excellent appendices provide a convenient one-stop location for conversion tables, lab values, and drug information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a compilation of concise practical reviews of up-to-date clinical information in canine and feline medicine. This book updates the first edition (1997) by the same editors with an increased number of topics and wider range of contributors, as well as new information on existing topics.
Purpose: It is intended as a comprehensive but concise, quick reference for small animal internal medicine, which provides up-to-date information on a broad range of topics in an easy to use format. The book is suitable as a practical clinical reference or as an outline for quick review.
Audience: This book is written primarily for small animal veterinarians and veterinary students and is also useful to small animal interns and residents.
Features: The book reviews diseases of the dog and cat and is organized into four main sections (presenting problems, laboratory tests, electrocardiography and diseases/clinical syndromes) with topics presented in alphabetical order within the appropriate section. The table of contents lists the topics by system as well. Within sections, two facing pages are dedicated to each topic, allowing the opened book to display the complete review of the subject. An innovative six-column format permits a considerable range of information to be condensed into the two-page summary. This facilitates use, but can be difficult to access or read when bulleted entries are not left-justified. Suggested reading lists follow each review. The book concludes with useful appendixes including endocrine testing protocols, tables of toxins and antidotes, and a drug formulary for dogs and cats. The authors' goal of allowing frequent and rapid updating of the material is meritorious. However, in striving for brevity, many pertinent details have been ignored. Because information regarding pathophysiology and other details pertaining to diseases reviewed in this text are not considered, the book is suitable only for quick review and not as a basic text for veterinary instruction.
Assessment: The number of disease conditions covered is extensive, but the book sacrifices thoroughness for brevity and encourages veterinarians and veterinary students to rely on a quick review of essential facts without more in-depth consideration of the disease process and individualization of appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. It divorces the consideration of pathophysiology from the closely-linked determination of the best care for the patient and promotes a "cookbook" approach to medical problems, despite the authors' protestations to the contrary. The book does fulfill a need not entirely covered by other texts in the number of topics covered and ease of immediate retrieval of key items of information. However, with many other excellent options available, I find this text to be a less attractive choice than references incorporating some consideration of pathophysiology and more detailed, though still concise, coverage of topics and reference using visual summaries in the form of charts and diagrams.
Ann L. Johnson
This reference book is well organized into four chapters: presenting problems and physical findings; diagnostics-laboratory tests; diagnostics-electrocardiography; and diseases and clinical syndromes. Each chapter is divided into one- to two-page summaries of numerous clinically relevant topics. Common diseases are covered in a two-page, six-column format that summarizes definitions, relevant pathophysiology, signalment and signs, causes, and diagnostics and treatment. The diseases and clinical syndromes are organized in alphabetical order and are also listed in a table of contents organized by body systems, making it very easy to locate pertinent topics. The purpose is to provide the busy practitioner and student with concise practical reviews of almost all clinical diseases and problems of dogs and cats. This objective is worthy, and the book meets it. The target audience is general practitioners and veterinary students. In some areas, the editors, consulting editors, and authors are well recognized as credible authorities. In other areas, the authors are not as well recognized. There are no illustrations in this book, with the exception of the section on electrocardiography, which has representative ECG strips. References are few and are usually to other textbook chapters rather than to original scientific work. This makes it difficult to pursue a reference for a statement, but it may be appropriate for the purpose of this book. The table of contents and format of the book make the index relatively unnecessary, but it is available and appears complete. The consistent format for topics makes it very easy to use the book as the quick reference it is intended to be. Theappendixes contain a complete drug formulary, reference values, conversion tables, and a quick reference to toxic agents and antidotes, all of which add to the reference value of the book. I think this book will be very useful as a quick reference during daily practice. I think it is most useful to an individual, but it would be a quick reference for a library frequented by veterinary students. The CD-ROM may be useful in a computer-equipped teaching hospital or practice.
