The third edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Neurology has been completely rewritten and restyled, reflecting the rapid and extensive advances that have taken place in this field over the last 10 years. Accompanying chapters from neurology specialists across Europe and the USA are a set of stunning specially commissioned full colour illustrations. The book is divided into three sections. The first section discusses the essentials of neurological diagnosis including, examination, lesion localization, clinical pathology, electrophysiology, neuroradiology and tissue biopsy. And it is within the neuroradiology chapter that the greatest differences from the previous edition are evident. Increased access to advanced imaging has greatly expanded neurological knowledge and here these techniques are explored in depth alongside thorough descriptions of radiographic techniques typically used in small animal practice. The second section focuses on clinical presentation and has been expanded with the addition of several new chapters on different presenting problems. This has been necessary due to the overwhelming increase in information now available on both new and previously described diseases. The aim of these chapters is to provide the practising veterinary surgeon with information identify the area of the nervous system responsible for their patient's clinical signs. The reader is then guided through an appropriate diagnostic approach and the different diseases to be considered. Each chapter in this section presents the diseases in a similar fashion; detailing the clinical presentation, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of each disease.This is followed by the final section of completely new chapters devoted to the special treatment considerations necessary for the neurological patient. Considered here are emergency neurology presentations (e.g. head injury), neuroanaesthesia, clinical pharmacology, radiotherapy, neurosurgery and rehabilitation of the neurological patient.

Covering the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the nervous system, Veterinary Neuroanatomy and Clinical Neurology, 4th Edition helps you diagnose the location of neurologic lesions in small animals, horses, and food animals. Practical guidelines explain how to perform neurologic examinations, interpret examination results, and formulate effective treatment plans. Descriptions of neurologic disorders are accompanied by illustrations, radiographs, and clinical case examples with corresponding online video clips depicting the actual patient described in the text. Written by veterinary neuroanatomy and clinical neurology experts Alexander de Lahunta, Eric Glass, and Marc Kent, this resource is an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic disorders in the clinical setting. Disease content is presented as case descriptions, allowing you to learn in a manner that is similar to the challenge of diagnosing and treating neurologic disorders in the clinical setting: 1) Description of the neurologic disorder, 2) Neuroanatomic diagnosis and how it was determined, the differential diagnosis, and any ancillary data, and 3) Course of the disease, the final clinical or necropsy diagnosis, and a brief discussion of the syndrome. Over 250 high-quality radiographs and over 800 vibrant color photographs and line drawings depict anatomy, physiology, and pathology (including gross and microscopic lesions), and enhance your ability to diagnose challenging neurologic cases. A companion website hosted by Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine features more than 380 videos that bring concepts to life and clearly demonstrate the neurologic disorders and examination techniques described in case examples throughout the text. High-quality, state-of-the-art MR images correlate with stained transverse sections of the brain, showing minute detail that the naked eye cannot see. NEW! High-quality, state-of-the-art MR images in the Neuroanatomy by Dissection chapter takes an atlas approach to presenting normal brain anatomy of the dog, filling a critical gap in the literature since Marcus Singer's The Brain of the Dog in Section. NEW Uncontrolled Involuntary Skeletal Muscle Contractions chapter provides new coverage of this movement disorder. NEW case descriptions offer additional practice in working your way through real-life scenarios to reach an accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan for neurologic disorders. NEW! A detailed Video Table of Contents in the front of the book makes it easier to access the videos that correlate to case examples.

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.
