This illustrated work aims at helping veterinary surgeons to communicate with pet owners. After the previous volume about surgery, this atlas dedicated to dermatology helps the vet to explain the physiological and pathological characteristics of skin as well as the characteristics of diagnostic tests, treatments and surgical techniques. Every illustration describes the clinical aspects of the dermatology consultation: anatomical and physiological considerations about the skin and its adnexa, and graphic descriptions of infectious, inflammatory, endocrine, allergic or tumoral diseases. The clarity and accuracy of the illustrations turn this atlas into another useful clinical tool.
