Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David W Hummel, BS, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a concise and complete bandaging reference for small animal practitioners. The figures and descriptions provide clear and easy to understand instructions on bandaging, casting, and splinting the small animal patient.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe in text and pictures the techniques of small animal bandaging, casting, and splinting in addition to the complications associated with these procedures. This book accomplishes these objectives in a thorough and concise manner.
Audience: The audience includes veterinary students, practitioners, residents, and technicians practicing emergency or surgical medicine.
Features: This book covers all aspects of bandaging the small animal patient. Among the most important topics are wound dressings, bandage descriptions aimed at specific anatomical regions, and complications associated with the application of the dressings. In addition to clear written descriptions, the book contains excellent quality step-by-step photographic depictions of bandage placement. For its intended purpose, this book has no shortcomings.
Assessment: When compared to surgery books such as the Textbook of Small Animal Surgery, 3rd edition Slatter (Elsevier, 2003), or Small Animal Surgery, 3rd edition, Fossum et al. (Elsevier, 2007), this one provides better stepwise instruction on use of both simple and more complex bandages. The quality of its photographic instructions is far superior to that of these other books.
From the Publisher
“The real mainstay of this book comes in educating those inexperienced in bandage application and I believe it to be indispensable to those studying towards a veterinary nursing or veterinary undergraduate degree.” (VN Times Veterinary Nursing Times, 1 October 2012)

"This book is a must have for veterinary nurses and technicians." (Tomorrow's Vets, 1 January 2012)

"The chapter on extremity bandaging is excellent . . . Also illustrated are body, hip, shoulder, abdomen, and head bandages. All of them clever and innovative by their design." (Vin Book Reviews, 2011)
