Surgery of Exotic Animals

By R. Avery Bennett, Geoff W. Pye

Surgery of Exotic Animals PDF is The first book to provide veterinarians with in-depth guidance on exotic animal surgical principles and techniques.

As the popularity of exotic animals continues to grow, it is becoming increasingly important for veterinarians to be knowledgeable and skilled in common surgical procedures for a wide range of exotic species. Written for practitioners and board-certified surgeons with a working knowledge of domestic animal surgery, Surgery of Exotic Animals is the first clinical manual to provide comprehensive guidance on surgical principles and common procedures in exotic pets, zoo animals, and wildlife.

Edited by internationally recognized leaders in exotic animal surgery and zoological medicine, this much-needed volume covers invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and both terrestrial and marine mammals. Contributions from a team of surgery and zoo specialists offer detailed descriptions of common surgeries and provide a wealth of color images demonstrating how each procedure is performed—including regional anatomy and surgical approaches. An invaluable one-stop source of authoritative surgical information on exotic species, this book:

  • Provides illustrated guidance on surgical principles and common surgeries performed in exotic species
  • Describes general principles, instrumentation, equipment, suture materials, and magnification surgery
  • Covers a wide range of procedures such as small and large mammal dental surgery, avian soft tissue surgery, reptile orthopedic surgery, and primate surgery
  • Includes chapters on surgical oncology, megavertebrate laparoscopy, and minimally invasive surgery techniques

Surgery of Exotic Animals is an indispensable clinical guide and reference for all private veterinary practitioners; exotic, zoo, and wildlife veterinarians; laboratory animal veterinarians; veterinary students; and veterinary technicians.
