Routine preventative dental care is essential to prevent dental and
oral health problems in cats. However, some types of dental disease
are really difficult to diagnose and treat.
With more than 400 high-quality images, clear anatomical
illustrations, and thorough descriptions, this new volume on
veterinary dentistry focused exclusively in cats aims at being a
visual guide for quick visual identification and prompt diagnosis and
treatment of oral and dental problems in this domestic species.
