"I believe this manual will be particularly useful for specialty and referral facilities where advanced procedures such as laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and MRI are performed. Additionally, the depth and breadth of the information contained in this manual will help veterinarians, students, and technicians prepare for both routine and challenging anesthetic cases."
