Neoplasms are common in dogs and cats and it has been estimated that 50% of dogs and cats aged over 10 years die of neoplasia. The demand for treatment of pets with cancer is increasing and seems likely to do so for the foreseeable future as more animals become insured and their treatment costs are covered. The purpose of this book is to provide a basic clinical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the more common tumours in dogs and cats for the practising veterinary surgeon, undergraduate student and veterinary nurse. It is not intended to be a comprehensive reference book, covering all aspects of veterinary oncology, since several such texts exist. Rather it seeks to provide a core of basic, easily accessible and clinically relevant information on general aspects of veterinary oncology. The first three chapters present general background information on pathogenesis, tumour biology, managing the cancer patient and the most frequently used methods of treatment. Practical details of chemotherapy and guidance on safety are given, as well as coverage of radiotherapy. The remaining chapters then provide specific information on the epidemiology, aetiology, pathology, presentation, staging, management and prognosis for tumours occurring in the different body systems.

A common goal of human and veterinary medicine is to prevent and cure disease. To reach this goal, there must be a greater investment in the pathophysiology of diseases. Simply put, reductionist methodology fails to answer all of the questions. Pathophysiology represents a new approach to understanding the nature of disease processes, an approach already being embraced in human medicine. By integrating the basic sciences with pathology and the clinical sciences, Veterinary Pathophysiology bridges a significant and widening gulf in the veterinary professional curriculum. The aim of this trailblazing text is to be scholarly—yet practical—with a focus on the recognition and prevention of early dysfunction. In contrast to modern clinical veterinary medicine, which has focused progressively on the prescription of medications for individual symptoms and signs of disease, this text gives attention to understanding the functional changes that accompany disease. To offset over reliance on pharmacotherapy, Veterinary Pathophysiology offers insight into the interaction of the functional components of the mammalian body and their reaction not only to disease, but also to the risk of imbalances introduced by dietary and therapeutic manipulation. Veterinary Pathophysiology will supplement existing textbooks in general or introductory pathology, and veterinary internal medicine, by introducing a new framework for thinking about the nature of disease. The integrated problem-based approach of this book addresses the changing needs of veterinary college curricula, and will be a key resource book for problem-based approaches to learning. Veterinary Pathophysiology is an invaluable text for the practicing veterinarian, as well as veterinary students and instructors in general pathology, pathogenic microbiology, parasitology and immunology, physiology, neurobiology, oncology, toxicology, and pharmacology. This unique text offers students and clinicians the most comprehensive introduction to understanding the interactions between organs and functional systems that underlie infectious and metabolic diseases. With chapter contributions from 25 international authors, this title is the definitive text and reference in veterinary pathophysiology. It belongs on the desk of every veterinary student, and in the library of every instructor or clinician interested in a deeper understanding of animal diseases.
