Overview

The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Abdominal Surgery provides a ready source of practical information for veterinary surgeons, and is also beneficial for veterinary students, nurses and technicians as well as those working towards a specialist qualification in soft tissue surgery.

The Manual concentrates on the most common soft tissue surgical conditions of the abdomen encountered in small animal practice and mentions briefly the more uncommon and complex surgical procedures. The main focus of the Manual is the various surgical techniques - illustrated throughout by the step-by-step Operative Technique panels - although medical issues and the decision-making process leading to surgery are also discussed.

Each of the chapters follows the same basic format: introduction; patient evaluation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic techniques; preoperative considerations; surgical management; and postoperative management. Warning and practical tip boxes also feature throughout the Manual.
