Reviews for Crow and Walshaw's Manual of Clinical Procedures in Dogs, Cats, Rabbits and Rodents
This user-friendly manual covers a broad range of clinical procedures, which are separated into 4 parts: Routine Clinical Procedures, Specialized Clinical Procedures, Emergency Procedures, and Routine Clinical Procedures in Small Mammals. The text is provided in outline format and is complemented by the substantial use of figures and images that depict the various techniques and procedures described. The book more than fulfills its stated intent of serving as an easy-to-follow guide for a variety of clinical procedures seen in companion animal practice...I commend the author for her thoroughness both in the topics selected and the details provided regarding the performance of the described techniques...Not only is this print edition a great resource, but it also has a companion website that includes all figures from the book and supplemental interactive multiple-choice questions and answers.
