The fifth edition of Handbook of Veterinary Neurology has been substantially updated, providing students and practitioners with up-to-date information on small and large animal neurology. The new edition is in full color, enhancing the learning experience and providing a stronger knowledge of neuroanatomy. We have continued to use the problem-oriented format from previous editions. The emphasis remains on lesion localization because one cannot diagnose what is wrong if one does not know where the lesion(s) is (are) located. 548 p.
NEW TO THIS EDITION:
- Two new co-authors, Jean Coates and Marc Kent, board-certified in neurology, enhance the credibility of this edition.
- A full-color design and numerous illustrations include enhanced images of neuroanatomy and pathology.
- Case histories in each chapter present a problem and the results of the neurologic examination, then ask you to solve the problem by localizing the lesion, listing probable causes, and making a diagnostic plan. Answers are provided at the back of the book.
- A consistent format for each case history includes signalment, history, physical examination findings, and neurologic examination.
