Veterinary oncology is a specialty that is advancing at a very fastpace. This allows clinicians to have more and more resources at their disposal to treat their patients and, at the same time, requires them to have an in-depth and constantly updated knowledge of the subject. In order to help veterinary surgeons in this task, this book, titled “Oncology, from theory to practice”, describes in detail and in an educational and accessible manner the basic and modern knowledge in this discipline, always from a practical point of view. Together with the essential aspects and the latest advances in oncology, this book includes a chapter about the most common specific neoplasms in daily practice, their protocols and recommended treatments, as well as several real clinical cases through which readers will be able to evaluate their knowledge of the subject. A book to turn veterinary oncology into one more of the specialities offered in daily practice.
