EJCAP Summer 2015 issue: out now
No need for fancy toys or a specialist degree: in the EJCAP Summer 2015 issue, Robyn Jarrett and colleagues describe an easy, practical technique to treat nasal squamous cell carcinoma in cats, using diathermy and curettage. The issue also includes interactive refresher papers on bone marrow cytology, the impact of chemotherapy on the digestive tract, portable blood glucose meters and the challenging approach of diagnosing blood-clotting disorders.
It also contains a presentation of the 2014 FECAVA symposium on pet zoonoses: Which are the main diseases humans and livestock can catch from pets, and how have these been identified? What are the main recommendations from the CALLISTO project? Find out more in the CPD section!
Veterinary app & book reviews
You will also find a new line-up of veterinary app and book reviews, and a new selection of papers in the “How to…” spread, including two cardiology lectures presented at the 2015 BSAVA congress. We also provide a sneak preview of several clinical case reports to be presented at the upcoming SEVC/FECAVA Congress in Barcelona.
