This book’s aim is to provide veterinary practitioners and trainees with a concise, systematic guide to urological disorders affecting dogs and cats.
The author focuses first on assessment of the patient and the main investigative techniques to reach a diagnosis. He then deals with the differential diagnosis, causes and treatment of conditions ranging from prostate disorders and trauma to all types of urinary incontinence, including urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence. Reflecting clinical practice and to assist the diagnostic process, conditions are grouped and discussed under their main presenting signs.
The book is fully referenced and illustrated throughout by colour photographs, imaging, and diagrams of the highest quality.
