Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David E. Freeman, MVB, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book is broken into 11 sections to cover 105 instruments used in veterinary surgery. Each section starts with a concise description of the instruments that follow, identifying their important features and uses. The figures that accompany the descriptions of each instrument include insets to show detail where needed.
Purpose: The book is intended to fill a void that most texts create in the library of a student nurse in veterinary medicine and to facilitate recognition of important veterinary instruments. These are worthy objectives, and the book has satisfied these objectives admirably. Although a potential criticism of such a book is failure to include more veterinary instruments, it is not intended to be an encyclopedia.
Audience: The book is intended for veterinary nursing students, but could appeal to a much wider audience, including surgical specialists, veterinary students, and practitioners. No one author is specified in this book, but the listed consultants have done an excellent job.
Features: It is well illustrated and the quality and quantity of illustrations is numerous. References are not included and might not be relevant to this type of book. However, a short list would be useful. The table of contents is adequate and the book has an attractive appearance. A unique feature of the book is a clean layout with concise text and clear illustrations.
Assessment: It should have appeal to a wider audience than that specified. It is a must for veterinary libraries and bookstores. Omissions are likely with a book that is intended to be an illustrated guide, but one might only find a small number, if any, of favorite instruments excluded. Descriptions are highly accurate, although the countersink on pages 88 and 89 probably should not be described as quick coupling. Also, it would be helpful, when possible, to give illustrations in actual size and describe as such. The overall recommendation is high.
From the Publisher
"This book meets all the aims of the authors, and as such would be ideal for absolute beginners in the surgical field ... a very worthwhile book."Laboratory Animals
