Skin Diseases of the Dog and Cat Clinical and Histopathologic Diagnosis by Thelma Lee Gross, Peter Ihrke, Emily Walder, Verena K. Affolter

Diagnosis is often the most challenging part of dermatology. Diagnostic dermatology melds both clinical and histopathologic diagnosis by correlating the clinical and microscopic features of skin disease. This book is a heavily illustrated comprehensive overview of clinical dermatology and dermatopathology that will provide the reader with the tools to accurately diagnose skin disease in the dog and cat. The book will prove an indispensable reference for veterinary dermatologists, diagnostic pathologists, and small animal practitioners who seek to improve their skill in diagnostic dermatology.The features include: completely revised second edition, with many new disease descriptions; and now with colour clinical photographs illustrating all of the non-neoplastic skin diseases (previous edition had black and white photographs only). Written by internationally renowned experts, it provides a comprehensive overview of clinical dermatology and dermatopathology for all those interested in skin diseases of dogs and cats.


The authors are to be congratulated on the publication of what must be one of the most significant and remarkable contributions to the literature on veterinary dermatology and dermatopathology. The short conclusion from this book review is simple: if you are in any way serious about veterinary dermatology, you must buy this book. R. Bond, Veterinary Dermatology, 2006 Every dermatologist and veterinary pathologist in the world should own this book. It provides a unique resource for anyone who wants a definitive description of the clinical and histopathological features of all the skin diseases we currently know about. Veterinary Times, 2005 An excellent book. The illustrations are superb and the descriptions that accompany them are in straightforward English. It stems from the authors
broad practical experience which will aid even experienced clinicians and pathologists. I recommend this book to all veterinary dermatologists and pathologists. All trainees should have a copy and ownership should be compulsory for all dermatopathologists. J Rest, Veterinary Dermatology, 2005 The authors have written a well organised and complete review of the clinical signs and histopathologic lesions observed in all of the included skin diseases of the dog and cat. It is the most thorough and practical work available to the clinician and pathologist at this time. Dr L. D. McGill, Veterinary Pathology, 2006

This book offers a magnificent clinical and histopathological description of all the non

-neoplastic skin diseases and neoplastic skin tumors of dogs and cats known at the beginning of the 21st Century. Every general practitioner interested in dermatology, every histopathologist interested in the skin and even more so, every dermatologist and dermatopathologist should have this book, a masterpiece, permanently to hand. European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, 2006 A superb book that more than fulfils its premise. It fills a void in the dermatology literature and will become a definitive resource. Journal of Small Animal Practice
