Reviews

"Recommended for small animal practices and focuses on typical surgical emergencies common to soft tissue and orthopedic damages." (California Bookwatch, 2016)

"The result is a highly recommended, solid reference any small animal clinic should keep at hand." (Donovan's Literary Services, 2016)

"The textbook is well laid out and easy to read, although some of the surgical procedure descriptions could have been easier to follow." (Veterinary records, 2016)

"Small Animal Surgical Emergencies should find a place on the shelf of all general practitioners with a special interest in surgery and critical care. Surgical residents will find this book especially useful to form themselves into good surgeons and as ancillary study material for board examinations" Adriaan Kitshoff (EJCAP Summer 2016)

"I found Small Animal Surgical Emergencies to be a very informative book with up-to-date information in regard to diagnostic approaches, treatments, and outcomes. The emergencies covered are those that are most commonly seen in practice, and the discussions are well thought out and organized...I recommend this book as a reference for any emergency clinician who also performs emergency surgeries" (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 15/03/2017)
