Veterinary Ocular Pathology: A Comparative Review links the clinical features of ocular disease with gross and microscopic pathology to demonstrate the essential features observable during diagnosis. It is designed to be kept next to the microscope as an invaluable guide to accurate diagnosis in ocular pathology.
The book presents a wide range of images of the highest quality. A unique and distinctive feature is the juxtaposition of clinical and pathological images while offering detailed enumeration of the diagnostic features. Expert comparative comments by Dr Daniel Albert and contextual information on relative incidence are provided throughout. The authors address spontaneous disease of the eye in all animal species, with a particular emphasis on companion species. In addition, specific, common or interesting conditions of exotic species are included.
A convenient, comprehensive and easy-to-use reference for veterinary pathologists, veterinary ophthalmologists, students and comparative vision scientists.

''On every page a plethora of images illustrate the pathological changes in the eyes of animals from cyclopic sheep globes to the retinitis in raptors infected with West Nile virus. Every veterinary library should hold a copy and it will become an indispersible guide for those grappling with the disease processes occurring in and around the eye.''
"This book seems likely to make a major contribution to the Continuing Professional Development of all who deal with eye problems as ophthalmologists or pathologists. The text and illustrations are of high quality, reflecting the authors' reputations, and combine to make an outstanding publication. It is highly recommended and will surely have a place in the bench library of those who practice this specialty."
