Description

This highly illustrated textbook is aimed at the veterinarian in practice or training interested in all types of endocrine diseases of dogs and cats. The book is organised by body system and is case oriented.

Chapters deal with separate endocrine glands, beginning with a brief review of the morphology and physiology of the gland, complete with drawings depicting the functional principles. This is followed by descriptions of the disorders of the gland with up-to-date information on diagnosis and treatment.

Numerous clinical cases illustrate the presenting symptoms and the results following treatment. The final chapters contain diagnostic and therapeutic protocols, as well as algorithms for problems such as alopecia, polyuria, and weight loss.

Reviews

This is an excellent clinical endocrinology reference for veterinary clinicians who manage diverse endocrinopathies. It is written clearly and concisely and covers all pertinent points that veterinary professionals need to take into consideration in the management of clinical endocrine cases. The chapters are written by well-known experts in the field and provide concise summaries of the current literature. (5 stars)
