Doody ReviewsReviewer: Alyssa J Galligan, CVT (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book explains, step by step, how to do various restraint techniques using helpful pictures to illustrate the techniques.
Purpose: The authors provide a book that is easy to understand and well illustrated, in a clinically accessible format.
Audience: Although it is intended for veterinary technicians and assistants, this book also would be useful for anyone who is starting out in the veterinary field.
Features: The book provides information about basic restraint techniques and tools for both large and small animals, as well as some exotic animals, using well done illustrations and easy to understand descriptions. Each section ends with review questions and the book ends with an index and glossary. The one problem I see is that some of the pictures demonstrate incorrect methods for the described technique.
Assessment: This is a useful tool for anyone working in the veterinary field. I have not found many others that have as much information on this topic in such an easy-to-read format.
