As any veterinary clinician knows, it is a daunting task to  work  with  cats!  Over  the  years,  I  have  found  my experiences as a feline specialist humbling, but also have realized what a great learning opportunity feline medicine provides. Cats force us to be expert diagnosticians, relying  more  than  ever  on  the  “old  school”  skills  of  a good medical history and a thorough physical examination.  Unfortunately,  cats  are  still  the  “poor  stepchild” in companion animal medicine, receiving less attention in  research  on  common  medical  problems  as  well  as improved diagnostic and treatment approaches than is given to their canine counterparts. It is therefore fitting that the Winn Feline Foundation has endorsed this book, as  the  organization  has  provided  the  research  funding and support necessary to uncover an impressive amount 
of the information found in this text.
Fortunately, we know much more about feline medicine than we did 10 or 15 years ago. This book compiles 
the current state of knowledge from a group of talented and wise experts. These superb clinicians and diagnosticians  share  insights  from  their  many  combined  years of  feline  practice,  based  on  available  evidence  whenever possible, to bring together in one volume comprehensive information on state-of-the-art diagnostic tests, treatments, and techniques. I am grateful for their generosity  in  sharing  and  their  desire  to  pass  on  their knowledge.
The focus of this book is first and foremost practical and  concentrates  on  what  most  of  us  can  and should accomplish  in  general  practice.  It  is  designed  to  give veterinarians information that can be used every day in an  accessible  format.  It  contains  information  on  new topics (e.g., management of cats with chronic and concurrent diseases, feline life-stage medicine) and expanded information  on  emerging  topics (e.g.,  genetics,  felinefriendly practice, the importance of senior cat care, and the special needs of indoor cats). Throughout the book, algorithms,  key  points,  and  many  photos  are  used  to illustrate  conditions  and  techniques.  The  book  is  also available electronically where the many illustrations will fully come alive.

Presenting the current state of knowledge about feline medicine in one volume presents challenges, but it has forced us to focus on the most important and clinically relevant aspects. Material is organized largely by body system to make finding information easy, and it has been kept concise and readable. In most cases, a logical “road map”  for  diagnosis  and  treatment  has  been  provided, such as how to approach the vomiting cat or the cat with diarrhea.  Common  procedures,  such  as  placing  an esophagostomy tube, are described in detail with accompanying photos. Students, and those new toperforming certain  procedures,  will  find  this  approach  invaluable. 
The  reader  will  also  find  that  some  topics  are  covered more  than  once  in  different  sections  of  the  book.  This allows  different  perspectives  and  even  different  points of view on important issues to be presented by experts in their areas of expertise.
The foundations of feline medicine are more important than ever, and thus a full section has been devoted to updated information and techniques for handling and physical  examination,  the  art  of  taking  the medical history, the idiosyncrasies of cats and drug therapy, the most effective drugs and techniques for analgesia, and detailed information on fluid therapy and anesthesia for many  different  medical  situations.  Special  attention  is paid to reducing the barriers that prevent so many of our feline  companions  from  receiving  regular  veterinary care in a ground-breaking chapter on making your practice feline-friendly.
Veterinarians  must  continually  strive  to  be  open  to learning  from  cats  because  cats  do  not  give  up  their secrets easily. Clues are there for those who are willing to  observe  and  listen.  This  textbook  is  a guide  to that experience and it will enhance every veterinarian’s feline practice skills, whether a new graduate or an “old hand.” Our hope is that it will be your “go-to” reference for  feline  medicine,  whether  on  your  bookshelf  or  in electronic form
