This fine reference volume has been completely revised and extended to provide veterinarians in practice with a complete guide to the diagnosis and treatment of all important eye diseases. It includes coverage of the most common ophthalmic disorders of dogs and cats, as well as horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits and birds. It provides practical tips for diagnosis without specialised experience or specific instruments. As a guide to differential diagnosis rare signs are described to complete the range of possible ophthalmic disorders. A special chapter dedicated to ophthalmic emergencies has also been included.
This book encourages and helps equip a practitioner to attempt treatment of veterinary ophthalmic cases, yet clearly shows the therapeutic limits faced by the non-specialist. It describes preliminary measures that can be taken before referral as well as potential professional errors.
