Veterinary Surgical Instruments
An Illustrated Guide
by Cow, Robertson and Cooper.
The current failure rate for students of veterinary nursing is high, due in part to the fact that there is a shortage of suitable texts available. One key skill every student must acquire is the ability to differentiate between the various surgical instruments in use. In the past, the shortage of published material in this area has even meant students resorted to collecting equipment manufacturers' brochures for learning purposes. This book will provide a timely guide to each of the instruments in common use. Illustrated throughout, "Veterinary Surgical Instruments: An Illustrated Guide" includes line drawings depicting the working heads of the instruments on an enlarged scale, as well as providing a concise description of their usage and design. It also includes physiology, management, hygiene and feeding, first aid, basic hospital practice, and the theory and practice of nursing.
