Overview

The fourth edition of Small Animal Surgery serves as a one-stop resource for authoritative information on all aspects of small animal surgery. Coverage includes basic procedures such as spays, castrations, and declaws, as well as more advanced surgeries like craniotomy, ventral slots, and lung lobectomy. New contributors bring a fresh perspective and discuss the latest advances in key areas such as imaging modalities, regenerative medicine, minimally invasive surgery, and neurology. Access to a companion website provides a fully searchable version of the book, bi-monthly content updates, videos, aftercare instructions, case presentations, and a fracture planner.


• Well illustrated, step-by-step instructions for surgical techniques
provide quick reference to practical how-to information in emergency and clinical situations.
Coverage of cutting-edge imaging techniques, including radiographs, CT, MRI, and digital imaging, explores the most useful imaging modalities for demonstrating areas of surgical concern.
• Access to the continually updated companion website for the life of this edition includes:

• Bi-monthly content updates provide cutting-edge information on surgery developments
• Video clips of step-by-step surgical procedures
• Customizable and printable aftercare instructions
• Interactive Fracture Planner
• Case presentations
• Neurosurgery video clips
• References linked to PubMed

Over 1500 full color images offer exceptionally clear representations of anatomy and currently accepted surgical techniques, including approaches and closure.
Anesthesia Protocols offer easy access to recommendations for anesthetizing animals with particular diseases or disorders.
Notes boxes call attention to specific data, offering at-a-glance access to key information.


• A new
chapter on neurologic examination provides a solid foundation in neuroanatomy, electro-diagnostics, and basic MRI physics and principles, enabling you to perform a proper neurologic exam to detect problems in cats and dogs, some of which can be corrected via surgical repair.
A new chapter on regenerative medicine provides the most current information on stem cell research.
Differential diagnosis tables and boxes offer quick access to vital information, including how to avoid misdiagnosis of disorders that may mimic more commonly encountered surgical neurologic problems that are not actual disorders requiring surgical repair.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Guillaume R Ragetly, DMV, IPSAV(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description:This is the third edition of a complete review of small animal surgery.
Purpose:This revision details the newest procedures and provides up-to-date references in a reasonably sized book with a user-friendly format that varies minimally between chapters.
Audience:It is written primarily for general small animal practitioners as well as for students. The detailed review helps readers to learn and understand basic and advanced principles and surgeries.
Features:The book first details general broad surgical principles. It then describes, successively, soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, and neurosurgery with, for each chapter, a general principle section (including definitions, preoperative concerns, anatomy, surgical technique and postoperative concerns) and a section on specific diseases that includes, in addition to very detailed surgical management, practical material for diagnosis and medical case management. The consistent format with an emphasis on important concerns, key concepts, and precautions, the extensive index and the excellent art program and numerous tables and boxes make this book very attractive. The relatively small number of either recent or classic references included with short descriptions for each part helps readers find more detailed specific information.
Assessment:This very helpful update gives all the keys to students and practitioners to improve in the surgical field. An e-dition is also available, including searchable text, continuous updates, interactive references,case presentations, video clips, electronic image collection, client information sheets, rarely performed procedures and a fracture planner. This e-dition will certainly be very helpful for students and practitioners as well as residents and specialists in surgery.
