Review by Kathy Lyon Star

This book is Out of Print.

Dermatology is likely the most frequent presentation in the average animal hospital. However, there are just so many presentations one can see, representing a larger variety of problems as there are signs.

As with most books, this one begins with a review of the basics followed with a chapter on problem oriented approach to derm cases. Where it differs from some other texts is its approach to problem solving and diagnostics. Numerous charts and illustrations have been included to assist the clinician in daily practice. One omission in this volume is that of exotics, which are represented in other BSAVA volumes directed toward those species. (Remember, this is canine and feline). In the same vein (no pun intended) texts on neoplastic diseases of the skin are moved to other volumes.

The first chapter on "basics" takes you through the entire structure of the skin. The following chapter on the history and exam, also lists breeds of dogs and their common skin ailments. This chart might be posted on the exam room door (veterinary side) for ready reference. There are also client history sheets one might copy, but having them available for printout on the Internet would have been a real plus. There are several client forms throughout the book for collecting specific information.

The chapter on core investigative and lab techniques is well illustrated with color photos. Flow charts on pruritus assist in diagnosing specific types. This section should be bookmarked for easy access.

Need I repeat that the BSAVA books are probably my favorites. This one is no exception.
