About this book

This is a practical, working manual on guidance for the management of wounds of all types in the dog and cat. The clinician will find this edition follows the same basic concept as the first - the information needed for treatment success. Many new and revised illustrations include 81 figures relating to techniques involved with maxillofacial and eyelid wounds.Although other techniques and methods are available, those described in this text have been found practical and effective and, for the most part are frequently used by the authors. The specifics of medication, bandages, sutures and other supportive measures described are those that the authors most commonly use, however these may vary according to the individual patient's needs.This edition also includes additional information on humoral factors affecting wound healing as well as some new topical medications and new bandage materials. There is also new information on the management of the specific wounds of chemical burns, radiation injury and perivascular medication injection plus new procedures for managing skin tension, correcting wounds around the head and perineal area, reconstructing and salvaging traumatised paws, managing dermal neoplasia and reconstructing eyelids
