Dermatology is a challenging field for the specialist, and more so for the general-practice veterinarian. Dermatological cases may well be one of the most numerous presentations in veterinary medicine. The success or failure of treatment is usually visually evident to the client, so success is especially rewarding. Visually obvious failures are equally distressing for both the client and veterinarian.

Diagnosis in dermatology requires both the histopathologic and clinical efforts of the clinician. This book addresses the in-depth diagnosis and provides information and illustrations down to the microscopic level. The book is liberally illustrated with color photos, microscopic and electron-microscopic views. The chapters are sorted by lesion and disease type (Listed below).

The book is a compilation of the authors; no single chapter has a single author. I like this type of organization, as I always feel that all authors have a chance to contribute in each section.
