Product description

With detailed, full-color coverage of surgical procedures, "Veterinary Surgery: Small Animal" is an authoritative, two-volume reference on the art and science of small animal surgery. Expert contributors discuss surgical principles, neurosurgery, and orthopedic surgery, along with soft tissue surgery, always supported by evidence-based research and complete surgical instructions. More procedures are covered with greater detail than in comparable books, and a greater emphasis on pathophysiology shows how it relates to diagnosis, treatment, and overall case management. Experienced coeditors Karen Tobias and Spencer Johnston provide the definitive reference for veterinary surgery, whether you want clear guidelines to procedures or you are preparing for the ACVS board examination.

Review quote

""Veterinary Surgery: Small Animal" has finally arrived. This textbook has been eagerly anticipated by many veterinary surgeons...Veterinary Surgery: Small Animal is a two -volume reference text that covers in great detail all aspects of small animal surgery...The book contains key up-to-date references, giving a sound review of the evidence and a factual base behind the content...This textbook is a 'must-have' for surgical specialists, training specialists and veterinarians who perform surgery or regularly refer cases for surgery. It is definitely not a light read, but then again, surgical procedures, no matter how routine, should not be taken lightly." Vet Record, June 2012 "Tobias's two-volumes provide a very broad overview of small animal veterinary surgery from the history of the science to the latest advanced surgical techniques such as brain surgery or microcamera thoracoscopy. The authors (authors more than 150 specialists) take in to account all aspects of the condtions from the diagnosis to post op care. Anaesthesia and pain management are not overlooked...(The book is) well illustrated? with drawings and pictures and references are either available online? or at the end of the chapters." Vet Today, March 2013
