BSAVA Manual of Feline Practice: A Foundation Manual

Durata citire: 2 minute

by Andrea Harvey, Séverine Tasker
July 2013 (Reprinted 2015)

This new addition to the BSAVA Foundation Manual series serves to provide an easily accessible source of practical advice on the management of common feline problems encountered in first-opinion practice. It begins with an introduction to important general issues in effective feline practice, including handling techniques, principles of examination and how to ensure a cat-friendly practice. Gold-standard preventive healthcare guidelines focusing on a life-stage approach and a discussion on therapeutics including antibiotic use, analgesia and anaesthesia follow. The main part of the Manual comprises problem-oriented sections that focus on the investigation and initial management of, first, emergencies and then other common presentations such as alopecia, polydipsia and seizures. The final systems-based section gives more detailed information on the management of the disorders commonly seen in general practice.

The Manual gives enough information for any vet to deal very competently with commonly seen feline problems, also providing guidance on where to go for further information if required. Where appropriate, guidelines are also given for when referral should be considered, and for situations where financial limitations may exist.

Editorial Reviews

“This is an affordable, useful addition to the veterinary acid-base literature and could be used by students or practitioners of veterinary medicine or veterinary technology…The book is written by veterinary technicians for veterinary technicians. It is of high quality and moderate complexity…The editors are to be commended for including a chapter on the strong ion approach to acid-base in veterinary patients. This feature is still lacking in many books, despite the wide scientific acceptance of the strong ion approach. It is often omitted for its mathematical complexity and potential lack of utility, but the author of that chapter does a good job of explaining the easy utility of strong ion difference clinically even if the total strong ion approach remains out of reach practically.” (Doody Enterprises 17/03/2017)
