Manual of Canine and Feline Infectious Diseases

As with most of the books published by the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, the list of 17 contributors is impressive. This volume describes the diseases of dogs and cats caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoans, among others, and includes detailed information on such common diseases as cat-flu, infectious diarrhea, and pyoderma.

Significant noninfectious differential diagnoses are noted in the text where appropriate. Features include contributions from clinical experts. There is liberal information on laboratory diagnostics, and a practical approach to diagnosis and treatment accompanies each topic. Significant points are contained in text boxes throughout, guiding the reader through each presentation from diagnosis to treatment. Infections are grouped by the affected body systems rather than taxonomic classification - a problem-oriented rather than a pattern-recognition approach. When an infectious agent (canine distemper, for example) has more than one presentation, cross-referencing guides the reader from less-predominant presentations to the chapter containing the main details of clinical signs, diagnosis, and treatment.

The book is filled with excellent full-color illustrations and photographs. The numerous tables make this book an easy reference source. This is one of those volumes that will be much used in the dog and cat hospital, but it's not just a book to grab when that hard case comes in - it's a book to study and read at leisure. Also, it is an excellent tool for veterinary students.
