College-level collections strong in vet science will find this third edition of a classic surgery text is essential to covering the basic techniques of any large animal surgery, and packs in illustrated, step-by-step techniques for a range of domestic animals. From color illustrations, black and white diagrams and sketches, and equipment lists to descriptions of surgery indicators and new sections on minimally invasive surgery options, this is a technical vet's handbook no animal surgery student should be without.

This is basically the same book as Turners surgery book. Same excellent and concise explanations on how to perform sugeries, anaesthetics for surgery and how to avoid post operative complications. The newer edition has updated the original book for more modern antibiotics and anaesthetic techniques as well as some newer procedures, but is in essence the same book as before.
It is an excellent book for college and the new graduate, as the pictures also allow you to visualise the procedure more easily. The only downfall is the anaesthesia from an equine point of view, but then again its not an anaesthesia book!
