Atlas of Surgical Approaches for Soft Tissue and Oncologic Diseases in the Dog and Cat

Atlas of Surgical Approaches for Soft Tissue and Oncologic Diseases in the Dog and Cat offers practical guidance to making approaches for surgery to treat soft tissue and oncologic conditions in canine and feline patients. Every approach is outlined with step-by-step descriptions on how to handle the incision and covers indications and patient positioning. Detailed, high-quality medical illustrations are also included for each, and topics are logically laid out with images on the left and text on the right.
