Small Animal Anesthesia and Analgesia (081380230X) cover image
This book provides concise yet comprehensive information about anesthetic equipment, anesthetic and analgesic drugs and techniques, and monitoring. Particular emphasis is placed on indications and contraindications for drugs and techniques. Anesthesia with concurrent conditions and for chronic pain is also covered. Text boxes in each section contain key points.

Veterinary students, veterinary technician students, anesthesiology residents, practicing small animal veterinarians and non-veterinarian researchers will find this book invaluable.

"Effectively dispels the notion that 'one size fits all' anesthetic regimes or techniques can be used on every patient, and will enhance the reader's knowledge and thus ability to safely anesthetize animals, whilst also providing for their comfort"
Alicia Karas, Foreword writer.

“One of the things I liked best about this book was the diminished emphasis on the ‘cookbook’ or ‘rule book’ approach to anesthesia and a willingness to convince the reader by means of reasoned argument why a particular course of action should be taken.” (Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery, 2010)

“Small Animal Anesthesia and Analgesia fulfills its intended purpose of being a quick review for veterinary students or a rapid reference for busy practitioners. It is succinct and concise without dumbing down the subject....The fundamentals of traditional subjects are adhered to, whereas recent or recently resurrected modalities are expanded on. The equipment overview is concise. Often a daunting subject in specialized texts, this topic is crystallized into information relevant to the immediate needs of users. The whys and wherefores of judicious monitoring and support are emphasized, and the pros, cons, and vagaries of different monitoring modalities and support variables are discussed. Ventilation, an important aspect of anesthesia that is too often left to chance in clinical practice, is demystified. The chapter on preoperative preparation expands on a subject that is too often glossed over but is as critical to outcome as is the surgical procedure itself. The use of agents for perioperative sedation, analgesia, and anesthesia is thoroughly discussed, allowing users to make an informed decision regarding the choice of options available for a heterogeneous patient population." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2008 

“A top pick for any vet library or college-level collection. It packs in tables, references, and technical information to accompany essays on everything from induction agents and drugs to premedicants, making it a key acquisition for any serious vet library.” - Midwest Book Review, November 2008

“This is a useful and concise reference. It does not attempt to compete with the larger and more comprehensive references … but rather complements them. This is a nice compact book to have on your shelf whether you are a seasoned practitioner in small animal practice or a new graduate.... would also be useful for veterinary technicians and technician students, anesthesia residents and researchers that may be adminstering anesthesia.” - Doody's Book Reviews, November 2008
