Beginning with basic anatomy and normal reproduction, it goes on to cover practical knowledge about pregnancy, neonatal care, breeding soundness exams, and semen cryopreservation. It also includes an overview of factors, diseases, and abnormal conditions affecting reproduction, such as infertility, causes of abortion and contraception. Covering both pet patients and nondomestic species, this book provides a thorough grounding in feline reproduction for the general veterinary practitioner, veterinary student, animal scientist, and experienced cat breeder.

Feline Orthopaedics

Feline Orthopaedics

Cats are not referred to specialists as frequently as dogs, meaning the general practitioner must routinely treat cats that have been involved in road traffic accidents and other musculoskeletal trauma. This book is the first of its kind to provide a practical and user-friendly guide to feline orthopaedics. With a new author team, led by RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Orthopaedics) and Veterinary Neurology Harry Scott, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. New chapters cover Physiotherapy and Oncology of the Feline Skeletal System. The book includes highly structured fully referenced text that provides a concise, straightforward guide to the recognition and management of specific diseases and conditions. In this new edition, the neurological causes of lameness have been given more in-depth discussion, with an emphasis on early recognition of clinical signs and diagnosis. The disorder sections are now divided into those likely to be associated with trauma (fractures and luxation) and those which are congenital or developmental. The text is supported by high quality radiographs, colour photographs and colour line drawings to illustrate principles, techniques and procedures. Combining their experience in practice and education, the authors have produced a book that appeals to general practice veterinarians, specialist feline practitioners and to students.

FELINE GASTROENTEROLOGY

FELINE GASTROENTEROLOGY

Author: Fabio Procoli, Karin Allenspach, Silke Salavati Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/12/2021

The aim of this book is to focus on problems unique to the feline alimentary tract in comparison to dogs and to discuss them in detail, but also to highlight areas where knowledge is lacking or can only be derived from comparison with other companion animal species or humans. Instead of being a comprehensive work of all things GI in the cat, this book aims to shine a light on topics that are novel, such as the microbiome or probiotics, and might not have been covered by other standard textbooks. This book focuses on a medic's perspective on feline alimentary tract health, which starts with considering differential diagnoses in a structured way based on the most common clinical signs. It also includes the invaluable input from other specialties we so often draw on in clinical practice, namely laboratory diagnostics, diagnostic imaging, clinical pathology and histopathology, and nutrition, which can be a particular challenge in cats. It also covers feline-specific infectious and neoplastic diseases. Appropriate methods for retrieving adequate samples from organs of the alimentary tract in cats are discussed, and a particular focus on the challenges of differentiating inflammation from neoplasia is present in several chapters.
