Veterinary Pediatrics

This concise, informative book is the only one of its kind, and remains an indispensable resource for veterinarians and veterinary students worldwide. 

It is a unique combination of state-of-the-art information from previous editions, and new information from the latest developments in clinical veterinary medicine. Each topic is described in a succinct manner so that the text can serve as a quick reference resource for dogs and cats from birth to six months of age - whether healthy or afflicted with a congenital or acquired illness.

Each system is thoroughly examined, with a wide range of possible diseases or congenital/hereditary disorders examined. The in-depth scope of each chapter (system) is impressive.

This edition features contributions from 13 new authors who provide current information from their fields of expertise. Thoroughly revised throughout, covering the latest, most reliable information about heart, liver, kidney, GI tract, skin, eyes, and muscular diseases of dogs and cats younger than six months of age, the book is well illustrated with photos, radiographs, and drawings to illustrate salient points. The chapter on the liver is completely rewritten to reflect recent changes in clinical practice. I would recommend this book to any veterinarian with a pediatric clientele.
