A highly practical guide suitable for in-clinic reference, "Small Animal Oncology" has been designed for maximum ease of use and accessibility of information. Whilst giving clear and up-to-date briefing for the busy practitioner, it also is a valuable resource to the student with a special interest in oncology. This Introduction gives an overview of cancer biology and explains the principles of available therapies. There is an up-to-date discussion on new and developing techniques and treatments, and guidance on when these are indicated. The book covers all common, most less common and some rare aspects of small animal oncology.
"this textbook, written by devoted specialists, is an excellent way to learn how to approach cancer patients using all aspects of modern medicine, from purely medical to psychological, moral and socio-ethical. (...) The approach to tumours reflects the experience of the authors; even a beginner is safely guided through clinical signs, clinical evaluation, diagnostic work-up, staging, prognostic evaluation and treatment. (...) The text is equally understandable and guiding for a student with a special interest in oncology and useful for an experienced clinician.
The book was an enjoyable read. It is strongly recommended as an excellent source of up-to-date information for enthusiastic students, general clinicians as well as for those devoted specifically to veterinary oncology." - "Professor Janos Butinar, DVM, Ms, PhD; European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, October 2009"
"This book covers the main tumours in good depth, is a good reference fot the basic principles of veterinary oncology and is certainly recommended for the best practice bookshelf." (Veterinary Times, October 2010).
