About this Book
There is currently a lot of interest within veterinary medicine in both dermatology and exotics, yet, despite this interest, there is no single text available that focuses on both these key areas.
This book, for the first time, provides a practical guide to dermatological problems in birds, reptiles, fish and mammals. Divided into the four groups, each section has a chapter introducing the structure and function of the skin of each group, a chapter on examination and diagnostic tests, and further chapters on species specific skin diseases and treatments.
Written in a quick reference format and including almost 200 colour photographs, this book is a handy resource for veterinary practitioners, veterinary students and veterinary dermatologists alike.
