They are clearly written and well illustrated and will provide a useful concise resource for those beginning training. Most of the images will be replaced with high definition video to make it easier to understand certain procedures like operating-, suture – and bandage techniques.
A further four chapters provide an overview of abdominal surgery, fracture management, the external ear and ocular adnexa in both large and small animals.
Operative surgery remains an essential component of much general practice and the outcomes of surgical treatment are critical for the patient. As a veterinarian confident application of sound surgical solutions to animal problems will always be important for our animal patients and their human owners.
All the authors represent a formidable force in veterinary practice, learning and research. Many have been the international public face of the Utrecht Veterinary School.
