Neurology is a tough subject for many clinicians, and diagnosing a neurologic case is made more difficult if there is a lack of understanding of the nervous system and its functions. Developing these skills is one of the essentials of the veterinary practice. Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Neurology offers a comprehensive, yet practical, overview of clinical neurology, providing clinicians and students with the unabridged knowledge they need to examine, diagnose, and treat disorders and diseases of the nervous system.

Intended for veterinary students, as well as for clinicians who want to refresh their basic understanding of veterinary neurology, Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Neurology covers all of the important considerations necessary for clinical evaluation of small animals with neurologic disease. Coverage includes basic concepts of nervous system functioning; clinical examination and problem identification associated with nervous system disease; neuro anatomical diagnosis; differential diagnosis (diseases of the nervous system); diagnostic testing; therapy; and clinical management of common and important neurologic conditions.

According to the publisher, this book equips veterinary clinicians and students in veterinary medicine with the basics of clinical neurology, provides a clear and comprehensive guidance through the nervous system and its functions, and is written by a leading expert in the field of veterinary neurology.
