Distinct differences exist between cats and dogs not only in their physiology and metabolism but also in the way disease tends to present. This book is a short ‘pocket guide’ to feline internal medicine helping you to formulate a diagnostic plan and therapeutic strategy. The focus is on evidence-based medicine where available, otherwise current best practice is presented.
The book is divided into four sections:
• Section 1 gives an overview of some key areas of feline medicine including paediatric and geriatric medicine.
• Section 2 focuses on the approach to common presenting signs and differential diagnosis of commonly used haematologic and biochemical parameters.
• Section 3 presents an organ system based approach
• Section 4 covers feline infectious diseases.
A selection of useful texts and websites for further reading are included at the end of the book.
