Book Description:

The cases in Canine Infectious Diseases provide multiple real-life examples that provide students with details of clinical history, physical examination and gross pathology, as well as images and explanations of the pinnacle histopathology that underpins the majority of second year content. Although the authors have described this book as being predominantly for working vets and students on fourth-year rotations, it is evident that the clinical cases described would additionally aid revision for earlier years of study; when learning general pathology (often in year 2 of the veterinary course), it is useful to relate the lectured theory content into clinical examples. Overall, I found this book easy to read and extremely useful for revising second-year pathology and relating theory to clinical examples. Many key diseases are described in detail and the use of diagnostic test results, especially histopathology, aids understanding. I will undoubtedly relate to Canine Infectious Diseases throughout the veterinary course, and the size of the handbook additionally makes it ideal for taking to clinical placements. The textbook could be made more extensive to cover the full-range of potential canine infections, which would help establish it as a recognised reference point for vets in practice and during studies. I would highly recommend Canine Infectious Diseases to any veterinary student with an interest in the subject of infectious disease, or undertaking placements or revision, as well as to graduated veterinary surgeons who may need to reinforce their knowledge.
