Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery is a comprehensive, in-depth resource for well-referenced, current information on small animal soft tissue surgery. Offering detailed surgical techniques in a well-illustrated, easy-to-follow format, the book covers the full range of surgically treated diseases and syndromes, with video clips and slideshows to demonstrate surgical procedures on an accompanying DVD. Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery presents the state of the art for surgical conditions encountered in small animal surgery. Divided into chapters by body system, each section will begin with a brief review of the anatomy and physiology, with pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis described in detail. Illustrations accompany the description of surgical techniques, and some discussion of evidence-based medicine is incorporated throughout. Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery is an essential reference for small animal surgeons, residents, and practitioners performing soft tissue surgery.
