This text is a new addition to the Veterinary Self-Assessment Color Review series and focuses on encouraging critical thinking and logical progression while reviewing feline infectious diseases. There are 199 cases presented in a problem-based format designed to help veterinary students review what they have learned and to work through each case as though it were being seen in a clinical setting.

Readers are presented with a “patient” and encouraged to consider differential diagnosis possibilities, the diagnostic tests that would be appropriate and even what recommendations should be made for other animals in the same household. Color photos accompany each case and allow visual assessment of lesions, symptoms and even biological samples. However, in several instances, images would have been more useful if they had been larger or if they had been cropped so as to be able to show more detail of the relevant areas. Having temperatures listed in both Celsius and Fahrenheit would also have been beneficial for American readers. But overall the book provides a good review in a format that encourages the reader to actually think and try to solve the diagnostic puzzle.

This little book is a handy resource for reviewing feline infectious diseases and learning to “work your way through a case.” And while designed specifically for veterinary students, it can serve as a helpful review for veterinary technology students as well.
