I will preface that I am a physician, not a veterainarian.
However, if clinical rounds in a vet residency are anything like rounds in human inpatient internal medicine, this book looks to be
quite helpful. I like the question & answer format of the book. The type of questions in this book looks like the type of questions a resident would be asked. The answers given are good general answers with hints as to what the resident should do a google search before rounds. Example: in the renal section, certain breeds of cats seem predisposed to certain etiologies of renal failure. Google and look up to see if there are any other breeds beside persian cats that have increased incident of polycyctic kidney disease.
