There is no doubt that cats are more and more popular as pets nowadays. It is therefore mandatory for veterinary surgeons to increase their knowledge on the diseases most frequently seen in feline practice. For that reason, the aim of this book is to provide the clinician with a visual guide to accurately diagnose and treat the most common ophthalmological eye disorders in cats. Feline Ophthalmology – The Manual is designed for veterinary surgeons in practice, final year veterinary students and those with a particular interest in feline species, especially in ophthalmology.
