Following the super success and critical aclaim for the first edition, Publishing/The Veterinary Press is proud to announce publication of the second edition of A Colour Handbook of Skin Diseases of the Dog and Cat. The strengths of the first edition have been preserved:
- Problem-oriented approach; the book is arranged in twelve chapters covering dermatoses classified by their principle presenting sign.
- Concise systematically structured text; definition, aetiology and pathogenesis, clinical features, differential diagnoses, diagnostic tests, management. Focus is on clinical practice and the need to explain the disease to the owner.
- Superb and generously sized colour photographs and diagrams.
- Clear user-friendly design - one condition per page or spread of pages.
- Referenced thoughout to give the clinician access to the literature.
Within the framework and in light of the exponential growth of information in small animal dermatology since first publication, the authors have revised the entire text for the new second edition, added twenty-one new sections and one hundred and thirty-one new colour photos. The result is a handbook that is practical, extensive and up-to-date in its content, beautifully illustrated and designed. The new second editio will be of value to veterinary practitioners and students, veterinary nurses and technicans.
