The third edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Neurology has been completely rewritten and restyled, reflecting the rapid and extensive advances that have taken place in this field over the last 10 years. Accompanying chapters from neurology specialists across Europe and the USA are a set of stunning specially commissioned full colour illustrations. The book is divided into three sections. The first section discusses the essentials of neurological diagnosis including, examination, lesion localization, clinical pathology, electrophysiology, neuroradiology and tissue biopsy. And it is within the neuroradiology chapter that the greatest differences from the previous edition are evident. Increased access to advanced imaging has greatly expanded neurological knowledge and here these techniques are explored in depth alongside thorough descriptions of radiographic techniques typically used in small animal practice. The second section focuses on clinical presentation and has been expanded with the addition of several new chapters on different presenting problems. This has been necessary due to the overwhelming increase in information now available on both new and previously described diseases. The aim of these chapters is to provide the practising veterinary surgeon with information identify the area of the nervous system responsible for their patient's clinical signs. The reader is then guided through an appropriate diagnostic approach and the different diseases to be considered. Each chapter in this section presents the diseases in a similar fashion; detailing the clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of each disease.This is followed by the final section of completely new chapters devoted to the special treatment considerations necessary for the neurological patient. Considered here are emergency neurology presentations (e.g. head injury), neuroanaesthesia, clinical pharmacology, radiotherapy, neurosurgery and rehabilitation of the neurological patient.

Building on the success of previous editions, the Editors have sought to marry the best of the old with the new. All chapters have been updated, or rewritten, by international experts to encompass the important advances made over the last several years, while keeping the text practical and user-friendly. The principles of diagnostics and clinical staging and of the main therapeutic modalities are outlined. Individual tumour types in the body systems of dogs and cats are then described, using a common approach to aid information retrieval on aetiology and pathogenesis, presentation and clinical signs (including staging/grading of tumours), management , and prognosis. A wealth of new photographs has been included to illustrate the clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of a range of tumours. The growing importance of ethical considerations and palliative care are also recognized, and exciting developments and treatment possibilities explored.

This new addition to the BSAVA Foundation Manual series serves to provide an easily accessible source of practical advice on the management of common feline problems encountered in first-opinion practice. It begins with an introduction to important general issues in effective feline practice, including handling techniques, principles of examination and how to ensure a cat-friendly practice. Gold-standard preventive healthcare guidelines focusing on a life-stage approach and a discussion on therapeutics including antibiotic use, analgesia and anaesthesia follow. The main part of the Manual comprises problem-oriented sections that focus on the investigation and initial management of, first, emergencies and then other common presentations such as alopecia, polydipsia and seizures. The final systems-based section gives more detailed information on the management of the disorders commonly seen in general practice. The Manual gives enough information for any vet to deal very competently with commonly seen feline problems, also providing guidance on where to go for further information if required. Where appropriate, guidelines are also given for when referral should be considered, and for situations where financial limitations may exist. A unique feature of this Manual are the many ‘Quick Reference Guides’ (QRGs) provided throughout , which present practical techniques and treatments in easy-to-follow step-by-step guides, with clear colour photographs illustrating each step whenever possible. The international panel of authors were carefully chosen for their practical expertise and passion in different areas of feline practice. The practical and easy-to-follow advice provided in this Manual makes it essential reading for all new graduates and first-opinion vets who see feline cases, as well as veterinary students and veterinary nurses worldwide.

Building on the success of the previous edition, the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology, 2nd edition incorporates not only the new information available since the original publication but also additional chapters on diagnostic techniques and presenting complaints. Part 1 considers diagnostic techniques, with chapters on the approach to a gastrointestinal case, laboratory evaluation, imaging, endoscopy, immunology and biopsy. The completely new chapter on imaging of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas covers in detail the modalities most frequently employed in small animal practice, namely radiography and ultrasonography, whilst also briefly discussing more advanced techniques of Doppler and harmonic ultrasonography, scintigraphy, CR and MRI. The short chapters in Part 2 provide a practical approach to investigating presenting complaints: dysphagia and regurgitation; vomiting; acute and chronic diarrhoea; malabsorption; GI haemorrhage; dyschezia and tenesmus; jaundice; hepatic encephalopathy and infectious diseases. All follow the same basic format: outlining the clinical features, ranking the differential diagnoses in order of importance, and providing step-by-step algorithms for diagnosis. The more traditional organ-based systems approach in Part 3 has been expanded from the previous edition to include chapters on disorders of the oral cavity, perineum and anus, and biliary system. Each chapter is presented in a similar style, starting with a brief description of relevant anatomy and physiology, then detailing diagnostic tests, and concluding with a discussion of the disorders that can be encountered, including their treatment. The completely new final part contains chapters devoted to critical care, assisted feeding techniques, and an overview of therapeutics. The chapters, written by a host of international authors, all experts in their field, are accompanied throughout by full colour illustrations.
