"This is a welcome expansion of the first edition. It offers a much expanded clinical methods section, several new and/or newly organized problems, and presentation of enhanced and updated treatment options. Altogether, new information has increased the page count by 130 pages. This book remains unique in its clinical as well as academic usefulness. The clinical focus makes it stand out from other important fish medicine and disease references, and its ease of use makes it a popular first choice of professionals in the field." (Doody's, December 2010)

From "Key Features of Internal Organs"
"The intestinal tract is usually the first organ seen when the peritoneal cavity is opened. However, body fat is most commonly deposited in the peritoneal cavity and may obscure the viscera. The intestinal tract is a straight, thin-walled tube. In many aquarium fish the lumen is too small to be easily cut open, but in such fish the intestinal contents can often be seen through the wall."
Noga, Edward J.. Fish Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment (Kindle Locations 2076-2080).
The book is organized from the point of view of one who would probably be servicing commercial accounts, fish farms or ponds. In the Table of Contents he lists the possible health issues as 'Problems #1 - #103' in order of prevalence. I wouldn't have guessed the #1 Problem is Environmental Hypoxia because it's not a big problem in home aquariums due to filters and frequent water changes.
Listing Problems just numerically in the Table of Contents is kind of annoying, but that's my only gripe. If I suspected Septicemia, for example, and wanted to quickly click on it to check symptoms or treatments, I couldn't do it without knowing which # Problem it actually is. I can use the search, but it may return dozens of entries. [see 2 sample TOC pages]
Great resource for aspiring veterinarians, but for the average aquarist, not so much. There are better choices, such as Baensch Aquarium Atlas, or my go-to favorite, Burgess, Bailey & Exell's A-Z of Tropical Fish Health. These deal solely with ornamental fish and can be found (used) on Amazon or AquaBid for a fraction of the cost. On the other hand, they won't teach you how to perform brain surgery on a chinook salmon.

Some knowledge of general biological/medical terms required ( or you can always google it) if not an "expert".
recommended for all serious fishkeepers.
Am literally left to flick through the book and hope I can find the disease I'm looking for.
