“Provides an easily accessed source of diagnostic possibilities that is particularly helpful when dealing with an unusual collection of clinical signs or with unfamiliar breeds. The authors’ experiences in busy first opinion and referral practice have no doubt provided the incentive to organise the book appropriately for those who will have most wish to consult it. It is to be hoped that this book, by highlighting breed associated disorders, can provide an impetus towards more vociferous veterinary leadership in this important area of companion animal welfare.”
Nick Jeffery, Professor of Veterinary Clinical Studies, University of Cambridge

This book will save you hours of searching through scattered literature.  A unique resource, it brings together all the disparate information on breed-related diseases in one quick-reference volume.
