Concise short description - key words: The standard work for ophthalmology in veterinary practise - now completely revised and extended. This book provides especially general veterinary practitioners and students with a concrete guide to diagnosis and therapy of all important eye diseases in small animals. It also gives practical tips for determining a diagnosis without highly specialised instruments. At the same time, it helps to answer two important questions: When should an eye patient be referred to a specialist? Which preparations are necessary for doing this? In this second English edition, the present day developments in ophthalmological diagnostics and therapy have been comprehensively supplemented throughout the book. Features specific to veterinary medicine are discussed comparatively with respect to pet animals, horses, birds and farm animals. A special chapter dedicated to ophthalmological emergencies enables quick and assured actions to be undertaken in emergency situations.
