This book is designed (as mentioned by the author) to be a reference for the busy practitioner and the veterinary student interested in keeping current on therapy and procedures used when dealing with respiratory disease. The text is not meant to serve as an in-depth discussion of respiratory pathophysiology, but as a guide for those diagnosing and treating respiratory ailments.

The book is divided into chapters on localization of disease, respiratory diagnostics, respiratory therapeutics, nasal disorders, diseases of the airway, parenchymal disease, pleural and mediastinal disease, and vascular disorders. The diagnostic and therapeutic chapters go over procedures and therapies used currently with some nice photographs showing catheter placement and endoscopic findings. Other sections take a look at different disorders as they would be evaluated by a clinician, from history, signalment, and physical exam, to diagnostic findings, treatment and prognosis.

This book would be a great reference to have in any clinical setting as a guide to dealing with respiratory disease, as it takes the reader step-by-step through diagnosis and management of such cases. The treatment sections offer detailed dosages for case management. The author’s obvious expertise and experience with these cases is easily seen, and the reader, both veterinarian and veterinary student as well as veterinary technicians dealing with patients exhibiting respiratory disease will benefit from the author’s knowledge and advice.
