Clinical Endocrinology of Companion Animals offers fast access to clinically relevant information on managing the patient with endocrine disease.
Clinical Endocrinology of Companion Animals
Written by leading experts in veterinary endocrinology, each chapter takes the same structure to aid in the rapid retrieval of information, offering information on pathogenesis, signalment, clinical signs, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention for a broad list of endocrine disorders. Chapters begin with brief summaries for quick reference, then delve into greater detail.
With complete coverage of the most common endocrine diseases, the book includes chapters on conditions in dogs, cats, horses, ferrets, reptiles, and other species. Clinical Endocrinology of Companion Animals is a highly practical resource for any veterinarian treating these common diseases.
The inspiration for the format of Clinical Endocrinology of Companion Animals was from teaching students in the clinic and consulting with busy veterinarians in busy practices. There was clearly a need for a quick reference guide that had detailed information, but in a format designed to easily find that information. My hope is that this book will provide valuable assistance for clinicians in diagnosing and managing endocrine cases in practice, as well as for students wishing to quickly find information to help with a case or learn in greater depth the details of diseases of the endocrine system. My aim is that this book be a quick reference book for practical use, to be referred to in the consulting room and in the field.
