After explaining how clinical reasoning can be applied to identify a patient’s problems, focus on the most relevant issue, and determine its causes, this book describes complex case studies from a physiological and diagnostic perspective. Readers will be asked to answer a series of questions in order to assess their knowledge and acquire the necessary skills for properly establishing a diagnosis.
Successfully managing emergency patients and those with critical illness requires knowledge and skills often not adequately covered in veterinary and veterinary technician training programs. The Authors have created a comprehensive resource to use to grasp the issues and scope of problems inevitably encountered in clinical practice. The book's format is designed to allow readers to digest the broad range of topics inherent to feline emergency and critical care medicine.
