Feline medicine is an integral part of small animal and mixed animal practice, often accounting for 50% or more of the case load in small animal practices. The Feline Patient is the ideal clinical reference for busy practitioners wanting rapidly retrievable, concise information about feline diseases.

The new edition has been greatly expanded to cover more diseases and syndromes. Highlights include new sections on dermatology, ophthalmology, behavior, and dentistry; expanded formulary and surgery sections; and the most extensive collection of feline radiographs and ultrasound images ever published. Topics are organized alphabetically to facilitate quick access to diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic information - all tailored specifically to the unique needs of cats.

The editor of the book, a busy feline practitioner himself, understands the unique needs of feline patients and the desires of cat owners, and has designed this book to meet the needs of busy practitioners worldwide. With contributions from a host of experts and a practical, user-friendly format, this timely and authoritative book is an essential reference for all practitioners seeing feline patients.
