From basic procedures like spays, castrations, and declaws to advanced surgeries like craniotomy, ventral slots, and lung lobectomy, Fossum’s Small Animal Surgery, 5th Edition is the go-to, full-color guide for everything your vet students will need to know about both soft tissue and orthopedic surgery and then some. Five editors bring their expert perspective to relevant content — discussing the latest advances in key areas such as imaging modalities, regenerative medicine, minimally invasive surgery, and neurology. With each text adoption, students will also gain access to the Expert Consult website, which includes a fully searchable version of the book plus step-by-step video clips and animations of surgical procedures, aftercare instructions, case presentations, references linked to full text articles on PubMed, and an extensive image collection. There is no better student-friendly resource to keep your class up to date on the latest advances and techniques in small animal surgery!

    • NEW! Expanded chapter on neurologic examination cover how to perform a proper neurologic exam to detect problems in cats and dogs.
