Achieving the owners acceptance and implication, both in the required diagnostic tests and the therapeutic compliance, is an essential aspect for the optimal resolution of any clinical case. To this end, it is necessary that he or she understands what is happening to the pet and what diagnostic and treatment guidelines are being established by the veterinary surgeon. In order to make the explanations easier and take profit from the time dedicated to them, the practitioner can rely on this book, where anatomical and physiological aspects of the nervous system are gathered, as well as the main techniques and diagnostic tools that can be applied and the most common pathological conditions and neurological diseases. The clarity and accuracy of the illustrations on every sheet, accompanied by the texts of an expert in this issue like Juan J. Mínguez, will be an important support point for the veterinary surgeon in those cases presenting a neurological problem.

Juan José Mínguez Molina

Graduated in Veterinary Medicine by the Complutense University of Madrid in 1995. He obtained a postgraduate degree in Neurology and Neurosurgery I, II and III at the Postgraduate degree at the European School for Advanced Veterinary Studies (ESAVS) in Bern (Switzerland) from 2003 to 2006. Accredited by AVEPA in neurology and neurosurgery in 2013.

Since October 2008 he holds a position at the European College of Veterinary Neurology in order to obtain the European Diploma in neurology, rotating his work at the Neurology and Neurosurgery Service of the Veterinary Hospital of Guadiamar in Sanlúcar la Mayor (Sevilla), and at the Veterinary Neurology Center in Getafe (Madrid).

In addition to his jobs as clinical neurologist, he participates in research projects collaborating with medical institutions like the University Hospital Virgen del Rocío, University Hospital Virgen de la Macarena, and the National Throttle Center. He is author of many different publications and has participated as speaker in various courses and congresses, as well as the Master of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery of the Complutense University of Madrid, teaching issues related to spinal surgery.

He is member of the European Society of Veterinary Neurology (ESVN) and the Group of Neurology and Neurosurgery of AVEPA.
