This new book deals systematically with the assessment and treatment of small animal neurological patients in light of latest research findings and greatly improved imaging techniques. The authors first discuss step-wise neurological and systemic approaches to common emergency cases—examination, critical care and rapid assessment—based on presenting signs. They then deal in depth with the pathophysiology, treatment options and likely prognoses of each of the more common types of neurological emergency, be it vascular accident, infection, trauma, seizure, acute disease or neoplasia. Detailed support techniques and therapies are provided on emergency anaesthesia, pain management, fluid therapy, post-operative care and physical rehabilitation. The book will appeal to small animal practitioners, specialists, residents, course directors and students interested in neurology, emergency medicine and critical care, internal medicine, imaging and pathology.

This unique book, written by specialists from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, bridges the disciplines of clinical pathology, internal medicine and critical care in a single volume. The Manual is divided into three sections: haematology, haemostasis and transfusion medicine. Within each section, review chapters are augmented by contributions on selected topics of interest to the practitioner. Methods of sample collection and interpretation for routine haematology, haemostatic function and bone marrow analysis are reviewed and new developments, such as flow cytometry for typing leukaemias, outlined. The diagnosis and management of a range of major infectious, immune-mediated and neoplastic diseases of the haematopopietic system are discussed. A chapter on canine babesiosis is timely, given the recent reports of cases in the UK, and a chapter is also included on the feline pathogen Haemobartonella felis. A wealth of excellent colour photographs throughout the book illustrates cell types and abnormalities, plus techniques such as blood transfusion. The range of coverage and the practical information in this Manual will render it of great value in the practice setting.

Building on the success of previous editions, the BSABA Manual of Canine and Feline Endocrinology 3rd Edition provides a practical, clinically oriented approach to canine and feline endocrinology with the most up-to-date information for veterinary surgeons, nurses, technicians and those interested in the field. The book is divided into four sections. The first section discusses hormone measurements and special sample handling requirements, before providing a quick-reference section on test protocols and assay results. The second section is updated from the previous edition and investigates the clinical problems and laboratory abnormalities associated with endocrine disorders. Complete and detailed chapters on the most common endocrine disorders encountered in dogs and cats follow in the third section and it is here that the greatest differences from the last edition are evident. The revolutionary advances in endocrinology, including the use of trilostane for the management of hyperadrenocorticism and new information on the aetiology of feline diabetes mellitus, are discussed in depth. The final section of the Manual focuses on the uncommon and emerging endocrine disorders that affect dogs and cats. The majority of the information is reviewed and updated from the last manual, but new to this edition are chapter son unusual thyroid disorders (covering both feline hypothyroidism and canine hyperthyroidism), insulinoma and feline hypoadrenocorticism.

Problems with breeding of dogs and cats and the complications of whelping and kittening are commonly dealt with by veterinary surgeons in practice. Success depends on a full appreciation of the normal events involved in reproduction, and the problems that may arise. The international contributors of this book describe the normal physiological basis of fertility and reproduction, and the approach to problems seen in practice. Male and female infertility in the dog and cat are fully discussed, along with mating and the techniques of artificial insemination in both species. Sections on pregnancy, parturition and dystocia are followed by a detailed guide to the all-important care of the neonate, with considerations of congential problems and the role of infectious diseases and vaccination in young puppies and kittens. Comprehensive sections on drug therapy and surgery for reproductive problems in the dog and cat are included. This is a very practical book, fully illustrated and with a wealth of information to guide the reader through the approach to and treatment of reproductive disorders of small animals. It is a valuable and convenient source of reference for veterinary surgeons, veterinary students, veterinary nurses and all those involved in dealing with problems associated with the breeding of dogs and cats.

The administration of safe and reliable anaesthesia is important for all veterinary surgeons, and good control of pain after injury, either traumatic or surgical, is one of the most important ethical responsibilities. This new edition has retained the broad sections from the previous edition - Basic principles, Pharmacology and Anaesthetic management in specific clinical situations - but the new co-editorial team has added a new section on Pain assessment and management. Anaesthetic equipment, patient monitoring and anaesthetic accidents and emergencies are covered in much greater detail, and the chapters on pharmacology and specific patient management have been revised or completely rewritten. The book is aimed primarily at veterinary surgeons and students, but nurses and technicians will also find a wealth of useful information.
