Organized by functional neurologic system, the 3rd edition of this authoritative reference provides the most up-to-date information on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropathology, and clinical neurology as it applies to small animals, horses, and food animals. Accurate diagnosis is emphasized throughout with practical guidelines for performing neurologic examinations, interpreting examination results, and formulating effective treatment plans. In-depth disease descriptions, color images, and video clips reinforce important concepts and assist with diagnosis and treatment.

  • Expert authors bring more than 50 years of experience in veterinary neuroanatomy and clinical neurology to this book — Dr. Alexander DeLahunta and Dr. Eric Glass offer their unique insights from both academic and practitioner perspectives.

  • Disease content is presented in a logical case study format with three distinct parts:

  • Description of the disorder

    Neuroanatomic diagnosis (including how it was determined, the differential diagnosis, and any available ancillary data)

    Course of the disease (providing final clinical or necropsy diagnosis and a brief discussion of the syndrome)

  • More than 600 full-color photographs and line drawings, plus approximately 150 high-quality radiographs, visually reinforce key concepts and assist in reaching accurate diagnoses.

  • The book comes with free access to 370 video clips on Cornell University’s website that directly correlate to the case studies throughout the book and clearly demonstrate nearly every recognized neurologic disorder.

  • High-quality MR images of the brain are presented alongside correlating stained transverse sections for in-depth study and comparison.

  • Vivid photos of gross and microscopic lesions clearly illustrate the pathology of many of the disorders presented in the book.
