The new editorial team of Ed Hall, David Williams and Aarti Kathrani says the manual has been completely rewritten and reorganised to provide a current, well-structured overview of the main gastrointestinal diseases that challenge both clinical practitioners and academics.
The Manual is divided into four sections:
Diagnostic procedures and techniques: history taking, physical examination, clinical pathology, imaging and biopsy.
Diagnostic approaches to problems: diagnostic approach to complaints/problems affecting the GI tract, pancreas and liver.
Patient management: treatments available for GI, pancreatic and liver disease, including a chapter on fluid and nutritional therapy.
Diseases of specific systems/organs: conditions of organs of the GI tract, including pathophysiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
Ed Hall said: "The busy small animal practitioner is likely to see a dog or cat with GI signs most days and having this Manual as a resource should give them greater insight into the conditions they are treating and hopefully make their job more satisfying."
The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Gastroenterology is available in a printed edition (£90; £60 to BSAVA members) and an online edition (£75 +VAT; £50 +VAT to BSAVA members).
