PLEASE NOTE A NEW 3RD EDITION HAS BEEN PUBLISHED AND IS AVAILABLE IN THE LIBRARY AND PRINT

Part 1 considers diagnostic techniques, with chapters on the approach to a gastrointestinal case, laboratory evaluation, imaging, endoscopy, immunology and biopsy. The chapter on imaging of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas covers in detail the modalities most frequently employed in small animal practice, namely radiography and ultrasonography, whilst also briefly discussing more advanced techniques of Doppler and harmonic ultrasonography, scintigraphy, CT and MRI. The chapters in Part 2 provide a practical approach to investigating presenting complaints, outlining the clinical features, ranking the differential diagnoses in order of importance, and providing step-by-step algorithms for diagnosis. The more traditional organ-based systems approach in Part 3 includes chapters on disorders of the oral cavity, perineum and anus, and biliary system. Each chapter describes the relevant anatomy and physiology, then details diagnostic tests, and concludes with a discussion of the disorders that can be encountered, including their treatment. The final part contains chapters devoted to critical care, assisted feeding techniques, and an overview of therapeutics.
