This book is aimed at the busy veterinary practitioner or the student studying for final examinations. The information is practical, and the text concise, with charts, tables, photographs and other illustrations included to increase readability and make this an essential practice resource. Organized in four sections the book begins with a review of the presenting signs of renal disease, followed by a discussion of the various tests to be performed in assessing renal function, and determining the appropriate course of treatment. The book concludes with a concise overview of the options for managing renal disease in the dog and cat. Tables and flow charts are used to present information on the choice and implementation of appropriate therapeutic protocols, and key references are provided for further reading.
