Now in its second edition, Essentials of Veterinary Ophthalmology provides its readers with a practical introduction to the diagnosis and clinical management of the most frequently encountered eye diseases of domestic animals. Essentials of Veterinary Ophthalmology is distilled from the authoritative, two-volume, fourth edition of Veterinary Ophthalmology (Gelatt), drawing primarily on the clinically relevant sections to provide expert coverage in a more concise and quick-reference format – ideal for busy small animal or equine practitioners seeking rapid advice for a patient. The second edition includes more images, algorithms to speed the clinical problem-solving process, key points highlighted in bold, expanded appendices for convenient reference to therapeutic agents, recommended dosages, and possible side effects, and a brief glossary.
