About this book

All the anesthesia techniques currently used in veterinary medicine are covered in one concise clinical volume. There's new material on topics such as laboratory and exotic animals, local anesthesia, and regional anesthesia. Each of the 26 chapters is organized so that species specific and organ specific information can be easily accessed and understood.
