This book highlights the most significant diseases for humans and their dogs, cats and horses. The examples discussed, which include allergies, osteoporosis, cancer and many more, illustrate that humans and their companion animals may in fact develop similar diseases.

The reader - whether expert or interested lay - can thus directly compare between human and animal patients. The animal patient thereby represents a natural disease model, which besides the experimental models, is urgently needed to improve the therapeutic options for both humans and animals.

"Covering a subset of diseases that occur in humans and animals, this book compares disease presentation, diagnosis, and therapy focusing on dogs, cats, horses, and humans. ... The purpose is to provide a link between clinical and veterinary disciplines to expand how we look at different diseases. ... This book would be most useful for medical or veterinary students, residents, practitioners, and research faculty. ... On the whole, the goal of this book is achieved." (Sarah Freemantle, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
