Building on the success of the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Arthrology, this new Manual has broadened its remit to cover conditions of bone, tendon and muscle, to provide a ready reference for the small animal practitioner faced with a dog or cat showing lameness, stiffness or joint pain. The early parts of the Manual deal with generic issues related to the biology, diseases and treatment of bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Arthritis is addressed in detail, with notes on the modern approach to management. Chapters on surgical principles and instrumentation, biomaterials, arthroscopy and postoperative management address the general issues encountered in joint surgery. Chapters focussed on each of the major synovial joints, including the temporomandibular joint, then follow. Each of these joint-specific chapters deals with basic anatomy and surgical approaches, before describing the conditions that affect the particular joint. Common surgical procedures on joints are described with the use of Operative Techniques. Possible pitfalls and key points are highlighted, so as to make maximum use of the experience of the international panel of authors. The Operative Techniques are illustrated with the specially commissioned colour drawings that are so much a hallmark of BSAVA Manuals.

This unique book, written by specialists from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, bridges the disciplines of clinical pathology, internal medicine and critical care in a single volume. The Manual is divided into three sections: haematology, haemostasis and transfusion medicine. Within each section, review chapters are augmented by contributions on selected topics of interest to the practitioner. Methods of sample collection and interpretation for routine haematology, haemostatic function and bone marrow analysis are reviewed and new developments, such as flow cytometry for typing leukaemias, outlined. The diagnosis and management of a range of major infectious, immune-mediated and neoplastic diseases of the haematopopietic system are discussed. A chapter on canine babesiosis is timely, given the recent reports of cases in the UK, and a chapter is also included on the feline pathogen Haemobartonella felis. A wealth of excellent colour photographs throughout the book illustrates cell types and abnormalities, plus techniques such as blood transfusion. The range of coverage and the practical information in this Manual will render it of great value in the practice setting.

A concise guide to the care of small mammals, Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents: Clinical Medicine and Surgery covers the conditions seen most often in veterinary practice. The book emphasizes preventive medicine along with topics including disease management, ophthalmology, dentistry, and zoonosis. More than 400 illustrations demonstrate key concepts related to radiographic interpretation, relevant anatomy, and diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques. Now in full color, this edition adds coverage of more surgical procedures and expands coverage of zoonotic disease. From editors Katherine Quesenberry and James W. Carpenter, along with a team of expert contributors, the "Pink Book" provides an authoritative, single source of information that is hard to find elsewhere. A logical organization makes it quick and easy to find important information, with each section devoted to a single animal and chapters within each section organized by body system. Over 400 photographs and illustrations highlight key concepts such as radiographic interpretation and the main points of diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic techniques. A chapter on ophthalmology provides hard-to-find information on eye care for ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and other small mammals. Coverage of preventive medicine includes basic biology, husbandry, and routine care of the healthy animal. The drug formulary supplies dosage instructions for ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, rats/mice, prairie dogs, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders. Chapter outlines offer at-a-glance overviews of the contents of each chapter. Handy tables and charts make it easy to find key information. Expanded Zoonotic Diseases chapter adds more depth along with the latest information on the rising potential for disease transmission to humans as exotic pets become more popular. Additional surgical procedures for each species are included, some with step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photographs and line drawings. Full-color images show the sometimes minute structures of these small animals and make accurate diagnoses easier, especially for lymphoproliferative diseases of rabbits, endoscopy, cytology, and hematology.
