This new Manual builds on the success of the first edition of the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Ophthalmology. This new edition begins with a clear and concise guide to the examination of the eye. Using the techniques described and the lists of differential diagnoses provided in Appendix I, it should be possible for ocular lesions to be identified and localized with precision. Chapters on imaging techniques (radiography, ultrasonography, CT and MRI) and laboratory investigations follow. New to this edition are chapters on anaesthesia and surgery. Basic principles such as tissue separation and suturing are described and illustrated with specially commissioned drawings. Ocular conditions of dogs and cats are covered in chapters on specific regions, progressing from the adnexa (orbit and periorbital regions, eyelids and lacrimal system) to the eye itself, and thence to the connections between the eye and the brain. Each chapter starts with a short section that considers the relevant anatomy and physiology of that portion of the eye. Following a consideration of diagnostic tests, clinical features are described and illustrated by a wealth of high-quality full-colour images. Medical and surgical management are then discussed for each condition. Conditions of the dog and cat are mostly considered separately, except where there are close similarities. The last two chapters of the Manual briefly describe ocular conditions of rabbits and exotic species (primates, rodents, birds, reptiles and fish), with emphasis on the commoner disorders and those that differ markedly from the conditions already described for the dog and cat. The Manual is a practical consulting room guide to small animal ophthalmology, but there is sufficient detail to satisfy those who wish to study this fascinating specialty in greater depth.

The main part of the Manual comprises problem-oriented sections that focus on the investigation and initial management of, first, emergencies and then other common presentations such as alopecia, polydipsia and seizures. The final systems-based section gives more detailed information on the management of the disorders commonly seen in general practice. The Manual gives enough information for any vet to deal very competently with commonly seen feline problems, also providing guidance on where to go for further information if required. Where appropriate, guidelines are also given for when referral should be considered, and for situations where financial limitations may exist. A unique feature of this Manual are the many ‘Quick Reference Guides’ (QRGs) provided throughout , which present practical techniques and treatments in easy-to-follow step-by-step guides, with clear colour photographs illustrating each step whenever possible. The international panel of authors were carefully chosen for their practical expertise and passion in different areas of feline practice.
