From book: In the many years since The Well Dog Book was (first) published, veterinary medicine has changed in extradorinary ways. Not only have new illnesses such as Lyme disease (see page 114) and parvovirus infection (see page 90) appeared, but medical procedures once restricted to the diagnosis and treatment of human maladies are now commonplace in veterinary practice. Blood tests, urinalysis, radiographs (X-ray pictures), electrocardiograms, computers, and the most modern anesthetic are used daily in animal hospitals around the world. Sophisticated medical equipment such as endoscopes, ultrasound machines, CAT scanners, and magnetic resonance imaging aid in the diagnosis and treatment of conditons as diverse as foreign objects eaten by puppies, heart ailments, and brain tumors. Veterinarians specializing in diseases of the eye or skin, internal medicine, surgery, neurology, emergency care, or dentistry can be found in most major cities. Nevertheless, the core of veterinary medicine remains the same. This new edition of The Well Dog Book reflects these changes in veterinary medicine while still addressing the common problems and conce4ns of every pet owner.
