Canine and Feline Epilepsy Diagnosis and Management, 2014 Edition

Diagnosis and Management

By L De Risio, Animal Health Trust, UK, S Platt, University of Georgia, USA

September 2014 / Hardback / 600 Pages / 9781780641096

Epilepsy is one of the most familiar chronic neurological diseases and is a common yet challenging presentation in veterinary surgeries. This book covers seizure pathogenesis, classifications, diagnostic investigations, emergency treatments and longer term treatments, with a large section on pharmacological intervention. Filling a considerable gap in the veterinary literature, it includes tables and charts for quick reference during emergencies. Seizures can be very distressing to animals and owners, yet not all seizures are the result of epilepsy, a neurological condition. This book discusses how to distinguish between epileptic and non-neurological seizures, and provides case studies to illustrate different occurrences of epilepsy.

Feline Soft Tissue and General Surgery

by Sorrel J Langley-Hobbs, Jackie Demetriou, Jane Ladlow
December 2013

While the practice of feline general and oncologic surgery has developed greatly in recent years, the option of referral for some cat owners is not always a viable one. The increasing requirement for the general veterinarian to be competent in performing feline surgery has not, however, been supported by a dedicated text on the subject. Feline General and Oncological Surgery assembles an international team of editors and contributors to present the first comprehensive resource devoted solely to all aspects of soft-tissue surgeries in the cat. Techniques are covered in a practical and detailed ‘how to’ manner and range from the common to the more specialized, ensuring the widest possible appeal.

The book divides into several sections, initially considering the general approach to the feline surgery patient and then proceeding to detailed coverage of surgery by anatomic location. Part 1 deals with the basics of feline anesthesia, analgesia, preoperative and postoperative care of the patient, surgical instrumentation and surgical principles for oncology cases. Part 2 covers surgical techniques of general and oncological feline diseases and injuries, which are explained as step-by-step methods with many specially prepared schematic illustrations specific to the cat. Emphasis is on presenting both classical methods and new techniques.

Practical Feline Behaviour: Understanding Cat Behaviour and Improving Welfare

by Trudi Atkinson
July 2018

Practical Feline Behaviour contains all the relevant information that a veterinary nurse or technician needs to understand and handle the behaviour and welfare of house cats, and to offer safe and practical advice to clients.

There have been ground-breaking advances in our understanding of feline behaviour in recent years and, to protect the welfare of cats, it is increasingly important that anyone involved with their care, especially those in a professional capacity, keep up to date with these developments.

This approachable and down-to-earth text describes the internal and external influences on feline behaviour; on communication, learning, social behaviour, the relationship between behaviour and disease, and the cat – human relationship. It also provides practical advice on how the welfare of cats in our care may be protected and how behaviour problems should be addressed and how to avoid them.
