Summary

This new book deals systematically with the assessment and treatment of small animal neurological patients in light of latest research findings and greatly improved imaging techniques.

The authors first discuss step-wise neurological and systemic approaches to common emergency cases—examination, critical care and rapid assessment—based on presenting signs. They then deal in depth with the pathophysiology, treatment options and likely prognoses of each of the more common types of neurological emergency, be it vascular accident, infection, trauma, seizure, acute disease or neoplasia. Detailed support techniques and therapies are provided on emergency anaesthesia, pain management, fluid therapy, post-operative care and physical rehabilitation.

The book will appeal to small animal practitioners, specialists, residents, course directors and students interested in neurology, emergency medicine and critical care, internal medicine, imaging and pathology.
