The Dermatology Atlas Dog, with its more than 700 illustrations, is an invaluable guide to the challenges of daily practice.
For those who do not regularly work with dermatology, it proves to be a good tool to quickly find differential diagnoses or even a final diagnosis.
But even those colleagues with in-depth dermatology knowledge get their money's worth! The broad dermatosis repertoire, with excellent illustrations and interesting cases, allows the dermatologist in us to fully enjoy the beauty of dermatology.
