Product description

The third edition of this trusted resource for veterinary nurses retains the popular format that has been so successful in establishing the previous editions. All the principal procedures a nurse is likely to be called on to perform are presented in the most practically useful way, linking the action with the underlying rationale and illustrating both with ultra-clear line artworks and photographs, now in full colour and with additional figures for this edition. New material includes coverage of minor surgical procedures while recent changes in the veterinary nursing syllabus are reflected in sections on the horse. Along with these and other changes, the new Clinical Procedures in Veterinary Nursing has been updated throughout to guarantee its continuing role as the veterinary nurse's best friend in practice.

Review quote

"This book is excellent and very interesting to read. As a student currently studying as a Veterinary Care Assistant I have found this book invaluable, not only does it talk to you through how to perform each procedures step by step, it also explains why you are doing each step. The diagrams are very good and each picture is explained in thorough detail. This book is a must for anyone working with small animals. The animal handling and restraint chapter is useful for everyone, whether kennel staff or qualified nurse. It is well organised, very informative and useful for quickly revising a procedure that you are unsure of or maybe not carried out recently. New to this edition is the chapter 'Preparing for the Nursing Exams' - this is a particularly helpful addition. The revision technique and preparing for the exam countdown, ensures that you can be as ready and organised as possible. I would highly recommend this book as it is easy ro understand and extremely useful for revision and day to day life in practise." - TP Times, January 2009 "The third edition of this textbook, 'Clinical Procedures in Veterinary Nursing' is an excellent and useful resource for student and qualified veterinary nurses. The book covers most of the principal practical procedures that nurses might carry out in general veterinary practice. These are listed by general area of veterinary practice, and each procedure is discussed with extensive underlying and indicative rationale for the steps within the technique. It has also been updated to reflect the new veterinary nursing syllabus with the inclusion of clinical procedures that may be carried out on horses.[...] Overall, it is a book that I would recommend to be in the veterinary practice library to complement student veterinary nurses' learning during their training programmes and as an excellent refresher for qualified nurses.""
