Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karen L Campbell, DVM, MS, DACVIM, DACVD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This practical manual with up-to-date information on common veterinary procedures for small animals has been expanded to include basic restraint, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures in rodents and rabbits.
Purpose: A guide for these procedures is very helpful in training veterinary students and technicians, but it is also useful for veterinarians who want to review prior to performing procedures that are not routine for them.
Audience: The primary audience is veterinary students and technicians. The authors include a board-certified internist, an expert in laboratory animal medicine, and a veterinary technician. Together these authors bring different perspectives to provide detailed information on the purposes, indications, contraindications, possible complications, equipment needs, and preparation for each procedure.
Features: The 15 chapters in part I detail routine clinical procedures, part II includes 15 chapters describing specialized clinical procedures, part III has four chapters on emergency procedures, and part IV concludes with three chapters on routine clinical procedures in small mammals. The chapters include step-by-step technical information along with the rationale for each step. Excellent line drawings illustrate the majority of procedures. The bibliography in each chapter will be useful for those wanting to find additional references for the procedures. The manual also includes an excellent index.
Assessment: Although this book provides more details on the rationale for various procedures compared to other books on clinical procedures, it lacks the information on history taking and physical diagnosis found in Small Animal Physical Diagnosis and Clinical Procedures, McCurnin and Poffenbarger (Elsevier, 1991). However, the addition of new chapters on rabbits and rodents and expanded use of illustrations justifies the purchase of this new, third edition. This book will be very useful in helping users know both how and when to use each procedure.
From the Publisher
“This handy-sized paperback does exactly what is says on the cover. It is a lavishly illustrated book that details a range of clinical procedures – from handling to medication, to simple procedures (such as venepuncture) to move complex (such as tracheostomy and bone marrow biopsy).. and yes, it covers the range of species listed in the title.” (Veterinary Nursing Times, 1 September 2012)

"One of the great strengths of this book is the inclusion of many techniques often lost in the cross-over between books written for nurses and those meant for clinicians.... This book would be very useful for veterinary students and veterinary nursing students just embarking on their clinical training, but would also not be out of place on a practice shelf, as a quick reference guide to performing some of the less commonly used procedures for more experienced practitioners." (Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery, 2010)

"This practical manual with up-to-date information on common veterinary procedures for small animals has been expanded to include basic restraint, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures in rodents and rabbits. … Very useful in helping users know both how and when to use each procedure." (Doody's, January 2010)

"The third edition of this veterinary manual on common medical procedures for small mammals has been revised to include new clinical procedures as well as expanded coverage on rodents such as gerbils, hamsters and guinea pigs." (Book News, September 2009)
