About this book

This book provides an in-depth review on various aspects of canine and feline hypertension. Physiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology and pathological consequences of high blood pressure in cats and dogs are discussed. A comparative approach is taken, the underpinning research is critically evaluated and knowledge gaps identified. In addition, the reader is presented with evidence-based treatment strategies.

The book targets researchers, graduate students and clinical specialists in small animal internal medicine as well as veterinary clinicians with interest in nephrology, cardiology, neurology and ophthalmology.

Reviews

“The book is written for veterinarians managing patients with hypertension and specifically specialists in small animal internal medicine and related specialty fields who are interested in the comprehensive and detailed treatment of the subject. The book is also useful to those engaged in human or veterinary hypertension research. … Researchers will benefit from the comprehensive nature of the coverage and the comparative discussion of hypertension across species.” (Marcella Ridgway, Doody's Book Reviews, June 26, 2020)
