This book describes, from a practical and clinical point of view, the most relevant disorders affecting the adrenal and thyroid axes in cats and dogs. It is intended to help veterinary surgeons in the diagnosis of both common disorders of the endocrine system, such as Cushings syndrome and hypothyroidism, and less frequent pathologies, such as adrenal insufficiency and hyperthyroidism. Images of the different disorders are provided together with guidelines to help clinicians reach a definitive diagnosis and choose the most appropriate treatment, which should be available and accessible in their region of practice.

In addition to teaching endocrinology within the undergraduate curriculum, he is also head of the Endocrinology Unit at the UBA Veterinary Teaching Hospital and coordinates the internship programme in endocrinology at the UBA. The primary focus of his research is veterinary endocrinology, including thyroid and bone pathologies. Currently, his research centres on Cushing’s syndrome. He is a director of research projects and doctoral and master’s theses, and a tutor of interns and students in veterinary endocrinology. He also teaches several postgraduate specialisation courses, as well as graduate, master’s, and doctoral programmes, both nationally and internationally. He has participated in many scientific events (congresses, conferences, courses), in the fields of both veterinary and human medicine. Within the field of veterinary endocrinology, he has published numerous scientific articles and spoken at many congresses. He is a reviewer of scientific articles for several international journals and is a member of several editorial committees.
