    Book Description:


    3* Doody’s Star Rating® 

    CHOICE Magazine 'Recommended' (May 2020)

    As of 2018, pet obesity in the US affects an estimated 55.8 percent of dogs and 59.5 percent of cats, resulting in secondary conditions such as arthritis, diabetes mellitus, kidney disease, and certain forms of cancer. A complete and balanced diet accompanied by regular exercise is fundamental to optimize health and longevity in companion animals, meaning overweight pets have reduced quality of life and shorter life expectancy. Seeking to address this major modern-day problem, this book provides a comprehensive review of obesity in small animal medicine.

    Reviews epidemiology and how animal- and human-specific factors contribute to excess weight gain.

    Discusses the metabolic effects and inflammatory mediators associated with adiposity.

    Looks at various disease states and how they relate or develop as a result of obesity.

    Reviews different modalities to determine body composition to diagnose obesity.

    Offers a clinical approach to managing obesity with diet including discussion on the nutrients of concern for therapeutic weight loss diets.

    Veterinarians seeking to provide weight management services in practice will find clinically-applicable information from expert authors from both academic and practice backgrounds. Chapters cover topics ranging from epidemiology and pathophysiology of obesity to evaluation of body composition, and nutritional and behavioral management. The book also explores the role of exercise in managing obesity and looks at the management of co-morbidities. Finally, the authors present a range of case studies to demonstrate these topics in real-life practice.

    Book Description:


    Ear, Nose and Throat Diseases of the Dog and Cat is the ultimate reference for veterinarians and other professionals trying to diagnose and treat both common and less frequently diagnosed diseases and conditions of the ear, nose and throat.

    The book is divided into four sections: The Ear, The Nose, The Throat and Surgery of the Ear, Nose and Throat. Each of the first three sections begins by discussing anatomy and physiology and then reviews a wide variety of diagnostic procedures including video-endoscopic examination of the external ear canal, nose and throat, radiography and advanced imaging, and histopathological examination of biopsy samples.

    Chapters in each of the three sections then provide a detailed and extensive review of the diseases of the pinna, external ear canal, middle ear and inner ear – nasal planum, nasal cavities and sinuses and nasopharynx – pharynx and larynx. The final section opens with a chapter on perioperative management with subsequent chapters that cover surgery of the ear, nose and throat.

    Extensively referenced, and including nearly 500 color illustrations to assist in diagnosis and treatment, the book is an invaluable resource for both veterinarians in training and in practice for the accurate diagnosis and management of diseases of the ear, nose and throat.

    Authored by veterinarians with many years’ experience in general practice, the BSAVA Manual of Canine Practice provides the first port of call for the busy small animal practitioner faced with uncertainty over a new case. The development over the last 20 years of a range of formal specialist veterinary qualifications has produced a significant surge in the range and depth of knowledge in canine practice. Concise answers to common questions that occur in consulting rooms are becoming harder to find; this book swings the balance back to the practitioner. As well as traditional systems-based medicine, this Manual also provides information on the arts of practice such as consultation technique and dealing with common but testing situations. In the clinical presentations section of the book, first line approaches are given in a problem-oriented setting with a significant focus on the nose-to-tail physical examination, a detailed clinical history and common, readily available, diagnostic tests.
