The BSAVA has released the fourth edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Dermatology.
Revised under the direction of Hilary Jackson and Rosanna Marsella, the manual has been edited to include several new chapters, alongside expanded sections.
Retaining the popular format of the third edition, the manual is an easy-to-read resource focused on the clinically relevant aspects of dermatological diseases.
Beginning with an initial chapters which review the basic structure and function of the skin, as well as discussing a logical approach to history-taking and outlining the core investigative tests that can be taken, the manual then features chapters which take a problem-oriented approach to common dermatological conditions.
These include papules and pustules, scaling, and erosions and ulcerations. Within this section, the chapters on pyoderma, ear disease and atopic dermatitis have been expanded significantly, along with two new chapters dedicated solely to feline dermatological conditions.
Also new to this edition is a chapter covering the indications for allergy testing and the use of allergen-specific immunotherapy, along with a separate chapter on skin cytology.
In the final section of the manual, readers will discover a focus on the major skin diseases encountered in dogs and cats, including a chapter on topical treatments.
Available in both print and digital formats, the manual is £90 (£60 to BSAVA members) and can be purchased via the BSAVA online shop, or digitally via the BSAVA Library.
