A Guide to Canine and Feline Orthopaedic Surgery was first published in 1980 as a rapid reference guide for veterinary students and busy practitioners trying to keep pace with current trends in small animal orthopaedic surgery. Advances continue to be made in orthopaedics and the book has been regularly updated, the second edition was published in 1985 and the third in 1993. The fourth edition has been written by Hamish R. Denny and Steven J. Butter worth. This latest edition retains the same practical approach but has been completely rewritten to provide a comprehensive review of orthopaedic and spinal conditions in the dog and cat. Toe illustrations have also undergone a major overhaul and the many line drawings are now combined with photographs and radiographs to clarify diagnosis and surgical technique.
Although the size of the book has been considerably increased when compared with previous editions, its regional approach to problems should still enable the reader to use it as a rapid reference guide. The book should allow veterinary practitioners to diagnose and treat most orthopaedic and spinal problems encountered in general practice, while postgraduate students taking further qualifications in orthopaedics will find a sound basis for their studies and further reading provided here.
The authors gratefully acknowledge the help of their colleagues both at Bristol University and in practice who have made this book possible.
