Skin Diseases of the Dog and Cat: Clinical and Histopathologic Diagnosis

Front Cover
Diagnosis is often the most challenging part of dermatology. Diagnostic dermatology melds both clinical and histopathologic diagnosis by correlating the clinical and microscopic features of skin disease. This book is a heavily illustrated comprehensive overview of clinical dermatology and dermatopathology that will provide the reader with the tools to accurately diagnose skin disease in the dog and cat.

The book will prove an indispensable reference for veterinary dermatologists, diagnostic pathologists, and small animal practitioners who seek to improve their skill in diagnostic dermatology.

  • Completely revised second edition, with many new disease descriptions

  • Now with colour clinical photographs illustrating all of the non-neoplastic skin diseases (previous edition had black and white photographs only)

  • Written by internationally renowned experts, it provides a comprehensive overview of clinical dermatology and dermatopathology for all those interested in skin diseases of dogs and cats.

I took my 8 year old Pekingese to the groomer and Tropiclean was used on her. Before the groomer could complete the drying and combing process this dog had her first ever seizure and before I could get back to the groomer she had a second seizure. Before I could drive less than 2 miles from the groomer to the vet she had a 3rd seizure, the next day she had 2 Grand Mal Seizures and was put on Phenobarbital. As soon as she gained enough strength I bathed her in the shampoo I have always used on her and she has not had another seizure, she is now acting like her old self again. I feel my Pekingese had an allergic reaction to your shampoo.
