3 August 2023

The BSAVA has released the latest edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Endocrinology. The fifth edition of the manual takes a problem-oriented approach to endocrinology and focuses on the conditions most commonly seen in general practice.

Providing a ready reference for veterinary surgeons in general practice, the manual will also be useful for students, nurses and graduates embarking on further qualifications. It consolidates background information on endocrine systems with advice for the investigation and treatment of disorders affecting them.

This edition features:

  • An expanded introduction to endocrine diseases, covering underlying principles and discussion of the genetic basis for endocrine disease.
  • Sections comprehensively covering disorders of specific glands and systems, which make up the majority of the manual.
  • A section on unusual endocrine gland diseases, new to this edition, guides the reader through the diagnostic approach and next steps in handling complex medical cases.

Harriet Syme, Professor of Small Animal Internal Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, said: “The level of detail given, and the consistency in the layout of the chapters, makes it easy to find information when researching an individual case quickly between consults. This manual would also be invaluable to those studying for certificate exams as well as highly performing veterinary students. This book belongs in every small animal veterinary practice!”

Print copies are available through the BSAVA store, you can also access the digital version in the BSAVA Library. Prices are £61.75 for BSAVA members; £95.00 for non-members.
