Blackwell’s Five-Minute Veterinary Consult Clinical Companion – Small Animal Dermatology 3rd Edition
The content is a compilation of current scientific literature and “state of the art” clinical specialty medicine in a compact handbook. This third edition presents a new body of work intended to complement but not duplicate the information found in Blackwell’s Five-Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline. The living epidermis is briefly explored in relationship to clinical disorders. An introductory lesional and regional differentials chapter is formatted to act as a “symptom checker” to help direct the clinician. Diagnostic plans and therapeutic options are specifically outlined for each disorder. When appropriate, clinical and therapeutic myths are countered with scientific information to aid in daily clinician/client conversations.
We have retained the “easy to scan” bullet layout and included even more clinical color photographs to illustrate the text. The majority of photographs have been replaced or updated from previous editions. The chapters have been arranged in an alphabetical format for quick reference. An appendix of common canine genodermatoses is included with a listing of genetic reference labs for diagnostic purposes. A formulary of common dermatologic therapeutics is provided.
This dermatology Clinical Companion was written for both the veterinary clinician and the student of veterinary medicine. It is intended as a quick informative reference and vital clinical resource. The large number of clinical photographs and simplistic style also make this text a valuable addition to your client library in the examination room or reception area.
