"This book bridges the gap between basic orthopedic texts and advanced works regarding fracture management in small animals...The amount of information this book contains regarding fracture management in cats is particularly noteworthy...The section on implants is one of the most comprehensive aggregations of information on that topic available...The illustrations and photographs add tremendously to understanding...The authors should be congratulated on creating a successful textbook that should be in the library of every veterinary orthopedic surgeon."
