Review quote

A fantastic book. The pictures alone are worth the price of the book. The echocardiograms are all clearly marked so even a novice can quickly see what the issues are which stands out well. The four authors have done an amazing job getting this material together from distant sites and yet have managed a hard task in making the book into a unified and well organized text. Anyone interested in the cat should certainly want this not only on his/her bookshelf but used daily in the clinic alongside the radiographs and the ultrasound machine. The addition of diseases complicating cardiac conditions or simply found in conjunction with heart problems is one that many vets face daily and this should provide them with some great help. Of course the entire section on hypertension is one that fits into the feline profile as an important adjunctive cardiac problem and needed to be as complete and as well written as this one is. (December 2011, Steve Ettinger, DVM, DACVIM, FACC, FAHA)
