Veterinary surgeons in practice will find this volume a rich source of information, both to maintain knowledge and also to stimulate interest in new clinical skills and diagnostic techniques. The book is well organised, starting with a section on anatomy, pathophysiology and diagnostic techniques. In addition to the approach to the clinical case and basic investigative tests, specialist techniques, such as cardiac catheterization and Doppler echocardiography, are included.
Part 2 covers clinical problems, using a comprehensive and problem-oriented approach, followed by discussion of specific areas. The text is supported by tables, charts and colour illustrations to aid the practitioner in making a diagnosis. Part 3 describes medical therapy of both cardiac and respiratory conditions, and Part 4 the surgical techniques applicable to each area. Useful chapters on anaesthesia and thoracic drainage are included.
The Editors have brought together an impressive team of international authors to make this extremely valuable and immensely practical book an essential up-to-date manual for the busy clinician.
