Feline Orthopaedics 2nd Edition

Feline Orthopaedics 2nd Edition PDF

By Harry Scott, Juan M. Marti, Philip Witte

Feline Orthopaedics 2nd Edition PDF. Cats are not referred to specialists as frequently as dogs, meaning the general practitioner must routinely treat cats that have been involved in road traffic accidents and other musculoskeletal trauma. This book is the first of its kind to provide a practical and user-friendly guide to feline orthopaedics. With a new author team, led by RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Orthopaedics) and Veterinary Neurology Harry Scott, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. New chapters cover Physiotherapy and Oncology of the Feline Skeletal System.

The book includes highly structured fully referenced text that provides a concise, straightforward guide to the recognition and management of specific diseases and conditions. In this new edition, the neurological causes of lameness have been given more in-depth discussion, with an emphasis on early recognition of clinical signs and diagnosis. The disorder sections are now divided into those likely to be associated with trauma (fractures and luxation) and those which are congenital or developmental.

The text is supported by high quality radiographs, colour photographs and colour line drawings to illustrate principles, techniques and procedures. Combining their experience in practice and education, the authors have produced a book that appeals to general practice veterinarians, specialist feline practitioners and to students.
