Short description:

This is a concise and quick reference guide, clinically oriented, based on experience underpinned by published research data. The systems-based approach emphasizes the problem list process utilized by most practitioners when faced with a patient presenting with a single or variety of clinical symptoms.

Long description:

The field of infectious diseases in veterinary medicine is both rewarding and challenging, and this book offers small animal veterinarians a lifeline by balancing relevant background, guidance and optimizing efficiency. It provides a pathway for clinicians through this complex field by highlighting the most clinically relevant aspects of a wide range of diseases, and granting them consideration for placement on dog and cat differential lists. Organized according to a system-based structure, all the major clinically affected systems are covered along with a catch-all multisystem chapter for infectious diseases that escape easy classification.

The book is clinically oriented, based on experience underpinned by published research data. Pathogen-specific information enables rational choice of diagnostics, therapy, and prognostication for a complete list of small animal infectious diseases, that includes bacterial, viral, parasitic/protozoal and fungal pathogens. This concise reference guide will be an invaluable tool for clinicians as they develop their understanding of, and ability to communicate about, infectious diseases of the dog and cat.

Key features:

  • Provides a clinically oriented quick reference guide

  • Includes all major small animal infectious diseases

  • Contains over 300 superb color illustrations

    Infectious Diseases of the Dog and Cat: A Color Handbook is designed to provide busy clinicians with relevant information to guide diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases in a clinical setting. As an avid fan of Dr. Weese?s Worms and Germs blog, I anxiously awaited this publication. In addition to reliable, targeted, and efficient text, striking color photographs and summary tables provide quick information on featured agents. Chapters are well referenced, and the indexing is thorough... Overall, this book is a high-quality reference on infectious disease with information that is both accessible and concise for general clinical practice. It is an excellent supplemental reference for a clinic library and is well suited for veterinary students as they prepare for the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination.

    A Color Handbook of Infectious Diseases of the Dog and Cat is an extremely useful, well-written reference, that belies its small size. It is both accessible and useful to a wide range of clinicians, from general practitioners, through to residents, interns, and those studying for board examinations. Whilst it is not an exhaustive text, it is one of the most user-friendly references on this topic that this reviewer has encountered, and the authors and publishers should be commended on their efforts in creating it.
