Slatter’s Fundamentals of Veterinary Ophthalmology 5th Edition PDF
This has been a period in which the discipline of veterinary ophthalmology has flourished around the globe. The number of Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists has grown by an astonishing 36%, the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists now has more than 80 Diplomates practicing in 18 nations, the Latin American College has 31 members in 9 countries, and the Australian/New Zealand chapter has registered 22 specialists.
Meanwhile, there is great excitement surrounding the formation just last year of the Asian College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists. Considering only the major journal of the discipline—Veterinary Ophthalmology—over 500 articles have been published since the 4th edition of this text was written. New ophthalmic diseases have been described, the value of novel diagnostic modalities investigated, and new drugs and surgical techniques introduced; whereas some older techniques and therapies have lost favor.
As authors, we have attempted to reflect the diversity and magnitude of these changes in this brand new edition while, all the time, honoring the enormous strengths of Dr. Doug Slatter’s original concept for this text. As in the last edition, we have stayed true to the premise that if we or our specialist colleagues do not use a diagnostic or therapeutic approach on a reasonably regular basis, then we should not recommend it in this text. One of our “guiding lights” has been the concept that the student or general practitioner should be able to pick up this text with confidence that the recommendations within have been “field tested.”
