Clinical Procedures in Small Animal Veterinary Practice is your straightforward refresher in basic veterinary procedures. If as a veterinary student or graduate have you ever struggled to connect all your learning to concrete clinical practice, or felt an overpowering and urgent need for a quick, clear and reliable reprisal of basic clinical procedures, then this is the book for you. All the clinical procedures fundamental to the success of the student and practitioner are covered in clear, step-by-step format and with a wealth of colour illustrations for maximum clarity and understanding. Dogs, cats, rabbits and avian species are all dealt with.

Everything you need to know about basic procedures, but may have been afraid to ask, is presented here in one convenient volume, authored by two noted veterinary educators with years of teaching experience between them.


"This is a must-have book for veterinary and veterinary technician students and a wonderful resource to keep on hand in a small animal practice. The range and detail of coverage is far superior to that of similar books, and the description of the rationale following each step of the procedures is of great practical value."-Marcella Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine) Doody Review: 85/100
