This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. For most dermatological conditions several treatment and/or management options are available, making the situation even more complicated. Small Animal Dermatology is a handy reference for these cases and encourages the practitioner to pursue a definitive diagnosis and plan effective management even if the condition can not be cured.

"An innovative approach by Anita Patel and Peter Forsythe with the contribution of Stephen Smith for the avian and exotics; the book covers main complaints of specific sites. After a brief summary highlighting the important features of each group of diseases, several "real" clinical cases are described in detail. The last part of the book contains several useful appendices and 45 multiple choice questions (and their solutions!) to make sure you have become a real derm expert. The book is reasonably priced (£ 39.99) and the plastic cover makes it consultation room proof." Vets Today, 2008
"The text is clear and concise - something that will be much appreciated by busy clinicians - and the book is easy to use. The intention is that it will be used in the consulting room, and accordingly it is bound in a robust plastic cover, which will ensure that it survives such use! This is an excellent book, which fills a hitherto unmet need for a practical problem-oriented manual to assist clinicians in the management of this all too common group of diseases." Small Animal Dermetology, October 2009
"The book starts with two short chapters on the approach to dermatology cases and laboratory techniques, but the main substance of the text lies within the case-based sections. Each of these sections starts with an introduction to the diseases that cause the relevant presenting sign, and this is followed by clinical examples. The text is clear and concise - something that will be much appreciated by busy clinicians - and the book is easy to use. The intention is that it will be used in the consulting room, and accordingly it is bound in a robust plastic cover, which will ensure that it survives such use!"
