The most widely used surgical text on the market, Small Animal Surgery concisely explains and demonstrates the most common surgical procedures in veterinary practice. It offers an overview of general principles of surgery, including asepsis, the surgical environment, preparation of the patient and surgical team, instrumentation, suturing, postoperative care and pain management. Five new chapters on endoscopy comprehensively address the basic principles and techniques for this increasingly popular procedure, and new chapters have been added to address surgery of the brain and the peripheral nerves. In addition, separate sections are devoted to surgical principles and procedures for soft tissue, orthopedics, and neurology. With an authoritative author team, logical organization, unique elements, and full-color presentation, this new edition is an unparalleled resource for both students and practitioners.

“The book itself is again a masterpiece for the veterinary surgeon with well explained text, drawings and tables. The use of different symbols and colours in the text makes things very clear.
I was please to see the more recent orthopaedic procedures such as TPLO, TWO and TTA for the repair of cranial cruciate ligaments being so well described. A lot of attention is also spent on analgesia, with clear tables and dosages being provided.
Regarding the e-dition or online: this is a great improvement! Excellent features include:
- good searching system, very fast
- good quality pictures (they can be stored)
- frequent updates (weekly)
- reference links to PubMed with access to the full-text articles
- videoclips (good quality images)
- aftercare instructions
- interactive fracture planner
- POCKETConsult TM for PDA
- case presentations
- and many other useful features
veterinary surgeons (those just staring as well as more experienced surgeons) who are really interested in what they are doing during surgery, should have this book in their library.
...It is worth every Euro!
