Donald L. Piermattei, DVM, PhD and Kenneth A. Johnson, MVSc, PhD
This well-illustrated atlas provides detailed coverage of the surgical anatomy of the skeletal system of dogs and cats. It's a great learning and teaching tool for small animal surgery that contains highly detailed and clearly labeled drawings of bones and joints. The comprehensive coverage and vivid detail allow surgeons to explore a variety of approaches to fit each unique clinical situation.
Anatomic labels have been modified to make each section of a plate independent by making the labels cumulative
Contains more than 20 updated illustrations
Step-by-step procedure descriptions have been expanded with more detailed coverage of patient positioning, anatomic landmarks, potential dangers, and increasing exposure
Features a new section in the introductory chapter on planning for an approach, including 4 new radiographs
Each illustration has been created by an expert artist and conveys substantial clarity, realism, and detail
A consistent presentation, with text on left side of the page and illustration plates on right, provides easy access to key material
Full pages are dedicated to each plate with descriptive titles and detailed labeling
