About this title

Synopsis:

Anaesthesia of Exotic Pets provides a unique and quick reference guide for all those working in veterinary practice. The book covers the common species seen and includes: the basic approach to the case, equipment required, drug doses, and anaesthetic induction and maintenance as well as anaesthetic monitoring techniques. Peri-anaesthetic nursing care, such as husbandry, fluid and nutritional support, is discussed for each species. Written by experienced practitioners, the book provides a common sense and practical approach to anaesthesia to enable a variety of techniques to be performed confidently.

  • Covers practical information on anaesthesia for a successful outcome: how to assess and prepare the patient, lists of equipment required, how to perform the anaesthetic, husbandry, fluids and nutritional support
  • Discusses commonly seen pathological conditions and their effect on the choice of anaesthetic and patient prognosis
  • Provides an overview of the relevant anatomy and physiology in each species as this improves understanding of effects of anaesthesia and techniques used
  • Describes both basic nursing and more advanced anaesthesia techniques, catering for all abilities and knowledge
  • Contains tables of drug doses by species giving a quick reference for the busy practitioner

Review:

Anaesthesia of Exotic Pets is marketed as a unique and quick reference guide for all those working in veterinary practice with exotic pets. Coming at a time when there are other titles that cover similar material, does this book stand out from the crowd? Well, the quick answer is, yes, it does. A lot of thought has gone into the material, layout, and the use of graphics and photographs. The content is of a high standard throughout, and this is a very useful text to have on the shelf of the theatre, next to the BSAVA Formulary and other daily-dipped-into books. I thoroughly recommend Anaesthesia of Exotic Pets to any clinician who works with, or even potentially will see, exotic pets in their clinic. This will be a standard text that will set the benchmark for other authors in this constantly developing field. - The Veterinary Record, June 2008
