About this title


Handbook of Veterinary Anesthesia, 4th Edition is a convenient, complete, and practical resource for administering safe and effective anesthesia to small and large animals, including exotic pets. Long valued by students and practitioners alike, this handbook features all the practical and applied aspects of veterinary anesthesia, including patient evaluation, preanesthetic medications, local anesthesia and anesthetic techniques, and more. The book describes drugs used perioperatively and their clinical applications in detail and pays special attention to complementary and integrative approaches to pain management.

  • Key points and special considerations are now called out in boxes to highlight the most important and critical information for immediate access.
  • Comprehensive yet concise quick reference offers on-the-go, indispensable advice for anesthetic situations.
  • Dogs and cats each have their own chapter, and the special needs and considerations of each species are expanded for more comprehensive coverage.
  • Old and outdated drugs have been eliminated, so the focus is not on the history of veterinary anesthesia but on important, current concepts and techniques.
  • Completely updated drug information and new pain management techniques.
  • A new chapter discusses the unique anesthetic considerations in cats and their clinical applications.
  • The latest information on local anesthesia drugs and techniques.
  • Expanded coverage of post-anesthetic care, monitoring, and analgesic considerations.
  • Covers anesthetic protocols for common procedures in each species.
  • Includes new coverage of the use of constant rate infusion perioperatively.
  • Expanded coverage of euthanasia includes the most current AVMA guidelines for euthanasia techniques.


"Once you have got to grips with the point system it facilitates the book's uas as a reference. The handy size (185x112x25cm)makes this a useful addition to the veterinary surgeon's practice library or car glove compartment.
Where this book scores highly are the descriptions of various techniques and general considerations for anaesthesia - for example, fluid administration and treatment of shock. The chapters on respiratory and cardiovascular emergencies include detailed descriptions and excellent illustrations on techniques (for example, tracheotomy ad chest tube placement). The protocol for treatment of cardiopulmonary arrest is described in a straightforward way ina flowchart. Local anaesthiesia is described ind etail, with techniques including regional limb anaesthesia in various species. The diagrams relating to this section are particularly clear.
That this handbook has lived to its fourth incarnation is a testament to its popularity. If you only have room for one anaesthiesia reference book this is an extremely practical and reasonably priced guide to this multifaceted subject. The broad coverage and convenient dosage tables will prove ideal for both veterinary students and the more seasoned practitioner." - Lesa Longley, Veterinary Times, September 2007

"In their preface to this book, the authors say that the fourth edition provides 'the most up to date information available to veterinary anaesthetists.' There have vertainly been several chapter reorganisations, expansions and updates since the 3rd edition, and generally the book reads well and the information is easily located.
The 4th edition of the Handbook of Veterinary Anaesthesia deserves a place on the easy-to-reach bookshelf of any veterinary practice library, and as a 'pocket' guide for those working in the field." - Alexandra H A Dugdale, The Veterinary Record, August 2007
