Although a working knowledge of neuroanatomy is necessary for clinicians, learning neuroanatomy in depth is rarely an achievable goal of any veterinarian in practice. Additionally, there are countless neurologic diseases, far more than any general small animal practitioner could possibly remember. This book provides clinicians the tools they need to understand and be clinically proficient with the neurology cases they face in practice. Using a logical and simple approach, this book serves as a succinct handbook of canine and feline clinical neurology.

The first chapter condenses the neuroanatomy needed to perform and interpret a neurologic examination. The second chapter offers practitioners a step-by-step guide on how to perform and interpret the neurologic examination so that lesions of the nervous system can be accurately identified and localised. From these two chapters alone, practitioners will be able to discern whether or not a specific patient has neurologic disease and, if so, whether it is in the brain, the spinal cord, or the peripheral nervous system. Subsequent chapters provide an excellent resource to fine-tune that localisation and to identify the specific diseases. Extensive references are also included for further reading.

A Practical Guide to Canine and Feline Neurology is an invaluable reference source for small animal practitioners, veterinary students, residents, specialists and anyone needing a refresher course on neurology before taking specialty board or state board examinations.

From the Back Cover:

Although a working knowledge of neuroanatomy is necessary for clinicians, learning neuroanatomy in in depth is rarely an achievable goal of any veterinarian in practice. A Practical Guide to Canine and Feline Neurology provides the tools necessary to understand and be clinically proficient with the neurology cases faced in small animal practice.

The book is arranged in a logical sequence based on the order of brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous systems. Opening chapters provide a review of pertinent neuroanatomy, a step-by-step guide to neurologic examination, and a brief overview of available neurodiagnostic tests. Once a neuroanatomic diagnosis is made, readers can consult the appropriate subsequent chapter for specific information required for their clinical case. Disease descriptions are succinct, designed for the busy practitioner, but extensive references are provided for further reading as desired. There are numerous illustrations. Figures and tables.

A Practical Guide to Canine and Feline Neurology is an excellent reference source for general small animal practitioners, veterinary students, residents, specialists and anyone needing a refresher course on neurology before taking specialty board or state board examinations.
