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.
