Product description

In an area of growing interest to veterinarians, the authors have produced a rapid reference to the practical clinical aspects of small animal dentistry. The text is arranged to reflect the clinician's thinking and approach to problems: background information, clinical relevance, key points, differential diagnoses, diagnostic tests, and management. Some 400 top-quality illustrations-color photos, imaging and diagrams-provide a critically important complement to the text. The color handbook-here with revised text and references-offers real-life insights into the progression of oral disease and has been welcomed as a working resource by veterinary practitioners and students, and as a valuable review by more advanced veterinary dentists.

Review quote

...a very good canine and feline dentistry and oral surgery resource... In general the photographs and images of radiographs are of good quality... The illustrations were excellent, detailed, and informational... the text provides an excellent visual resource and has the opportunity to improve and add photographs in future editions... allows the reader to quickly learn a large amount of information on a particular topic in just a few pages; the arrangement is relatively unique for a veterinary dental textbook and provides the reader with a concise, informative, and clinically relevant synopsis of the condition discussed. The handbook is easy to read and the reader can quickly learn about particular pathologies in the oral cavity. It is a textbook that should be included on reading lists for veterinary students, technicians, and in the library of general practitioners. The US list price of the book is a good value and would be an important resource for any small animal hospital library. It is a quality color and photographic resource for the practicing veterinarian to help identify pathology found in the oral cavity. It offers a quick resource with condensed information for a practitioner challenged with a busy practice schedule. -- Kevin S. Stepaniuk Journal of Veterinary Dentistry 20100601
