Small Animal Neurology: What s Your Diagnosis? is one of the first books in an exciting new series that combines problem-based learning, case studies, and questions and answers. Neurology is a complicated area and cases can easily be mismanaged and misdiagnosed. This book aims to address this issue by presenting material in a unique format to enhance critical thinking and understanding. Adopting a case-based style, chapters cover all the major neurological syndromes from seizures through to urinary dysfunction. Each chapter includes the case history, clinical findings, questions and answers, diagnosis and a detailed discussion/analysis section. For veterinary students, this book is an ideal guide to how neurology cases are handled in the clinical setting. For veterinary practitioners, it is an innovative and interesting way to increase their knowledge and skills in clinical neurology.
