This second volume of the pet owner educational atlas about dermatology continues with the goal established on the first work: helping veterinarians in their communication with pet owners. This new work goes even further, as its contents go deeper into the specialty of dermatology and will therefore allow veterinary surgeons to consolidate and update their knowledge.
