I feel that anybody, whether in referral or general practice, who sees neurological cases even on a rare occasion will find this book both invaluable and interesting. -- Sharon Cole Veterinary Practice 20121001 chock full of helpful images, diagrams, tables of differentials, and numerous decision-making flowcharts, all of which help to clarify what is being discussed. The list of abbreviations in the beginning is also very helpful... a valuable tool that most veterinarians will find extremely useful and should have in their clinic library... readable and easy to understand... I would highly recommend this to my peers -- Donna Jacobsen, DVM Doody's Review Service 20130329 The chapter on neurological examination is excellent and applicable to all neurological patients, not just emergency cases... discussion of advanced imaging (e.g. MRI) and CSF analysis is detailed and well-illustrated...

The illustrations, including diagrams, clinical cases, imaging and pathology, are excellent.
