The fifth edition of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) Manual of Canine and Feline Endocrinology takes a problem-oriented approach to endocrinology and focuses on the conditions most commonly seen in general practice.
Providing a ready reference for veterinary surgeons in general practice, the manual will also be useful for students, nurses and graduates embarking on further qualifications.
It consolidates background information on endocrine systems with advice for the investigation and treatment of disorders affecting them.
This edition features:
- An expanded introduction to endocrine diseases, covering underlying principles and discussion of the genetic basis for endocrine disease
- Sections comprehensively covering disorders of specific glands and systems, which make up the majority of the manual
- A new section on unusual endocrine gland diseases guides the reader through the diagnostic approach and next steps in handling complex medical cases
Harriet Syme, professor of small animal internal medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, said: “The level of detail given, and the consistency in the layout of the chapters, makes it easy to find information when researching an individual case quickly between consults.
“This manual would also be invaluable to those studying for certificate exams as well as highly performing veterinary students. This book belongs in every small animal veterinary practice!”
Prices are £61.75 for BSAVA members; £95.00 for non-members.
