Veterinary Clinical Examination and Diagnosis book cover

Veterinary Clinical Examination and Diagnosis

This comprehensive text provides all of the information required to perform a thorough clinical examination of each organ system in common small and large animal species. Initial chapters on restraint, handling, and information gathering set the scene for sections on the particular skills necessary for examinations of different species, and detailed examinations of individual organ systems. Organ system chapters address additional tests available to practitioners to aid in diagnosis. Throughout this easily-accessible format, handy clinical boxes highlight key information. Tables and text boxes also place important information at your fingertips. Generously illustrated with line drawings, black and white photographs, and a color plate section, Veterinary Clinical Examination and Diagnosis provides all the tools needed to examine patients and reach a firm, confident diagnosis.
