Provides an accessible reference when preparing to do surgery for the veterinary and veterinary technician student.
Book chapters are arranged around the process of surgery, including sterilization, pack set ups, anesthesia, etc. There is an in depth explanation for each process leading to the actual surgery and then each process needed to insure the welfare of the patient following the surgery.
The shaded summary is to help the student memorize each process. Specific surgeries are limited so the student can think about all the surrounding processes and procedures and how they relate. Only the spay and castration surgeries are dealt with somewhat in depth as they are the most commonly performed surgeries seen in veterinary medicine.
