VSPN Review by Sharlene Halozan, RVTStar
(Click on stars for an explanation)

A color atlas of allergic diseases book is a small pocket guide that addresses human allergic diseases. Like many veterinary diseases, a cross over between human diseases to veterinary medicine can and often does occur. This small guide makes great use of illustrations to educate the reader on the anatomy of the immune system and how it responds to an allergen, seasonal allergens as well as when they occur in the environment, how to deal with allergic diseases including emergencies, and the use of allergy medications. The reader must realize that while everything in this book is not relevant to the veterinary world, it is a great start, especially in regards to those who may be experiencing allergic reactions to their companion animal family members.

This book is an ideal pocket guide for the veterinarian and veterinary technician student needing a quick guide to developing an understanding of dermatology. This book is definitely a 4 out of 5 star rating, mainly due to the “human factor” of the subject matter.
