''Several textbooks of veterinary neurology have been published just recently. This in itself is an indication of the rapid expansion of knowledge in this area of clinical expertise. Fortunately the diverse approaches to the subject have meant that these new books are complimentary rather than repetitious. The author has used a novel approach to the clinical material in this book; the description of each clinical condition provided with a specific case report giving details of the investigation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.''

Geoff Skerritt

"a great book for those wanting to start understanding small animal neurology and those who want a quick reference to search clinical cases, but don't want to read extensively before obtaining some answers."

Veterinary Record, July 2010

"A great addition to the Saunders Solutions in Veterinary Practice series. I would recommend it to general practitioners with a desire to demystify the challenges of neurological cases and I would consider the book to be highly useful addition to the library of any veterinary practice."
