BSAVA Pocketbook for Vets, 2nd Edition

By Sheldon Middleton

BSAVA Pocketbook for Vets, 2nd Edition has been fully updated with additional quick reference emergency information.  It provides the new (and possibly the not so new) veterinary graduate with a handy guide to the important drugs, tests and procedures most commonly encountered in small animal practice. It pulls together information from the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary, BSAVA manuals and other sources, and is intended to be a ‘quick glance’ reference that can be carried in a scrub top pocket for ease of use when consulting or during ward rounds. Notes pages are provided throughout.
