This focused resource covers all medical conditions that affect cats. Using a unique problem-based approach, it provides essential information for assessing presenting symptoms, reaching a differential diagnosis, and selecting the appropriate course of treatment for feline patients. A consistent format makes it easy to find information related to key signs and possible causative factors (graded to indicate how common each is), diagnosis, differential diagnosis (including tests where appropriate), treatment, prognosis, and prevention (where applicable) for each clinical condition.

PROBLEM-BASED FELINE MEDICINE
Jacquie Rand has worked in collaboration with a number of authors to produce a very clinically orientated book.
A wide range of different areas are covered in sections titles by either body systems (for example, cats with upper respiratory tract signs), or specified clinical signs (for example, pyrexia). A few more unusual presentations are missing, for example, the stunted kitten, but, on the whole, the book is comprehensive enough to be helpful in most situations.
Unlike most other books with ‘problem’ in the title, this book certainly wont fit in your pocket – it weighs in at an impressive 1,400 pages!
In summary, I think this is a good book. I do like the problem-orientated style adopted by the authors and this, in combination with the level of detail, would make this a useful reference text for final-year students/new graduates, or for a practitioner studying for a certificate. I also think its layout lends the book to becoming a valuable member of a practice armoury that can be used quickly during a busy evening surgery.
