"Skin Diseases of the Cat" provides the veterinary practitioner with one of the few specialised works dealing with all common skin diseases in the cat. Previous texts have aimed to group the cat and dog together dermatologically. However, fungal, viral and bacterial pathogens affect feline skin in a different way to the canine counterpart. This quick reference handbook is for use by busy veterinary clinicians and veterinary students. It contains many colour photographs of common and rare skin conditions. Each chapter looks at a different type of skin disease with descriptions of clinical presentations and a guide for diagnostic tests for each. Particular emphasis is placed on those diagnostic techniques available to the veterinary surgeon within a practice environment.
