Description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of small animal neurology covering the diagnosis and treatment of all clinical problems. It contains detailed information on neurological examination procedures, neuropathology and genetic disorders. Individual chapters cover laboratory tests, anaesthesia, radiology and electrodiagnostics, rehabilitation, pharmacology and surgery while specific neurological diseases are usefully listed according to their location.

Detailed imaging diagnostic illustrations show neuro-anatomy and -pathology, an illustrated appendix, and a step-by-step demonstration of clinical neurological investigation. Authored by a team of international experts on small animal neurology, the English language edition has now been revised by one of the most acknowledged neurologists in the US

Reviews

Well presented, with well laid out text and a large number of diagrams. It also includes a good section on MRI anatomy of the brain… chapters are logically laid out… there is a lot more to this book than a dry re-writing of the old neuroanatomy texts… Diagrams and illustrations are plentiful and text is detailed without being too rambling… should prove a good introduction to the subject and will likely become a handy reference text for the more experienced.
–Peter M Smith, Veterinary Practice, 01-Sep-2010

It is designed for use by veterinary professionals with a wide range of expertise, from veterinary student to specialist (practicing neurologist). It does a phenomenal job of meeting the needs of readers of all skill levels… It is fortunate that we have an English translation of this remarkable book. In its exceptional illustration and its clarity, comprehensiveness, and usefulness, this book is unequaled in small animal neurology. (5 stars)
