This book covers all types of feline infectious diseases, including infections caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi. 199 clinical cases are presented randomly, as in practice, but the wide range of cases cover infectious diseases which affect all the organ systems of the cat. The illustrated clinical cases contain integrated questions and detailed explanatory answers. The book is designed for professionals in practice and in universities, and to veterinary students, veterinary nurses and technicians.
