Introducing My New Textbook: Feline Endocrinology - The First Book Fully Dedicated to Endocrine Disorders of the Cat

Over the last year, I have been hard at work editing and writing chapters for this book, the first one written exclusively about Feline Endocrinology.

Our primary goal for this book is to provide veterinarians, veterinary students, and others interested in cats with a concise and complete information resource on the pathophysiology, clinical signs, differential diagnosis, diagnosis, and treatment of endocrine disorders in cats.

If you are a veterinarian that sees cats with endocrine disorders, I highly recommend that you get this book. I have included everything I know about cats in this book!

Take a look at the video below, where we (the 3 editors) talk about the development of this valuable reference.

The book is divided into 6 sections, including:
  • Hypothalamus and pituitary
  • Thyroid gland
  • Calcium and parathyroid glands
  • Adrenal glands
  • Endocrine pancreas
  • Blood pressure, body condition and nutrition

Moving forward, I will be blogging a series of posts about the 6 sections of this book, including the topics, authors, and even a few videos (included in the chapter) where applicable. 

From the publisher:
Developed by 50 of the most renowned feline experts from 13 countries around the world, this unique and practical book of feline endocrinology is a most valuable tool for small animal veterinarians who want to deepen their understanding on the pathophysiology, clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of every endocrine condition recognized in cats. Rather than have the authors treating cats as small dogs, a cat-only text will allow fully focused description of conditions in this one species. 

Allowing these experts in feline endocrinology space to fully teach us what they have learned about cats will result in a superior resource composed of text, figures, boxes, tables, algorithms, and videos (presented on an electronic version of the text).
