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, as well as new ophthalmologic techniques. 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.
