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.

Rabbits make up a considerable and growing proportion of the caseload in small animal practice, and both interest and knowledge in rabbit medicine and surgery has grown rapidly. In recognition of this, the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine and Surgery has been superseded by two separate volumes - the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Surgery, Dentistry and Imaging and the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine. There is an increased understanding of the pathology of common diseases and greater awareness both of new conditions affecting this species and of their response to both disease and treatment regimes. This new BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine features new chapters such as ‘The rabbit-friendly practice’, ‘Neoplasia’, and ‘Endocrine disease’. Other chapters have been updated and expanded, and the introduction of new authors has brought fresh insights and opinions to several topics.

These two manuals now provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of rabbit veterinary care currently available, in an easy-to-use, well illustrated format following the tried and tested BSAVA Manual template.
