Provide expert care for cats and dogs!

Its user-friendly format provides instant access to vital information -- making it an ideal resource in emergency situations -- and it is conveniently organized by both body systems and presenting signs to help you easily reach a diagnosis and determine a treatment plan for all clinical situations. Written by veterinary experts Richard Ford and Elisa Mazzaferro, Kirk and Bistner's Handbook of Veterinary Procedures and Emergency Treatment provides current guidelines for small animal emergency care and the diagnostic procedures most commonly performed in a busy, team-oriented practice.
"From the perspective of using a book day-to-day as a reference for procedures, it is great" Veterinary Record, January 2012
"This handbook is designed to provide a wide range of veterinary information in an easy-to-access format. The overall focus of this book is as the title describes, however a large portion of the text is also a resource for consultation and physical examination advice, as well as a diagnostic aid for both emergency and non-emergency conditions...Kirk and Bistner's handbook of veterinary procedures and emergency treatment is directed to the veterinary technician, but is obviously handy reference for the experienced practitioner...if used more extensively will become a valuable resource for refreshing one's basic skill and knowledge in a general or emergency clinical setting."Australian Veterinary Journal, September 2012
