Nearly 20 years after Bryan Tennant's first edition, this new update covers all aspects of diseases and disorders and affecting organs of the abdominal cavity and the endocrine/metabolic system in a case-based format. Responding to advances in imaging technology, digital radiography and high-resolution ultrasonography as well as the growth in specialised diagnostic tests for many diseases, new editor Craig Ruaux brings together a wide variety of new cases. These cases cover a wide spectrum of metabolic, endocrine, immune-mediated, inflammatory and infectious diseases and range in difficulty from simple bacterial infections to complex, multisystem disorders that would challenge most practitioners. They are presented in random order, as they would appear in everyday practice, and each author brings their own specialist expertise and experience to problem identification and management.
Presenting an assortment of cases and case-related materials appropriate to the day-to-day practice of small animal medicine, this book will be an essential reference for veterinary students of internal medicine as well as specialists in training.
