Clinical approach to Feline Dermatologic Diseases

Medicina complementaria para animales

Cats are not small dogs and they are frequently forgotten in the literature. This

book is intended to be an easy to use reference for practitioners and

dermatology enthusiasts that only focuses on cats and their manifestations of skin

disease. The emphasis will be on problem-based approach with numerous

flowcharts and clinical images to provide examples of the various manifestations of

skin disease in cats. The prominence is placed on clinically applicable

information and experienced based clinical tips to help clinicians troubleshoot the

various clinical presentations of skin disease in this species. Many dermatologic

diseases may look alike and the purpose of this book is to help clinicians

successfully diagnose the underlying disease rather than empirically treat

symptoms. Particular emphasis will be placed on syndromes that are peculiar of

cats and the special precautions that need to be taken when prescribing

treatments in this species.
