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.

Cats are now one of the most common household pets, and can suffer from a variety of disorders not encountered in other pets. Problem-Based Feline Medicine covers all the medical conditions that could be encountered in the cat. All clinical chapters are written to an identical template, listing the key signs and possible causative factors (graded to indicate how common each is) in an introductory section. this is followed by more detailed sections on diagnosis, differential diagnosis (including tests where appropriate), treatment, prognosis and prevention (where applicable) of each clinical condition.
Organised using a unique problem-based approach, and with useful additional chapters on drugs in cats and how to make a problem-based diagnosis, this book will provide vets with all the information they need to assess the presenting symptoms, reach a differential diagnosis and select the appropriate course of treatment for all their feline patients.
