Gastrointestinal Surgical Techniques in Small Animals is an essential resource for small animal surgeons and veterinary residents.
Small animal general surgery has evolved rapidly in the past decade. Procedures have become increasingly complex, including the expansion of minimally invasive surgery options. Gastrointestinal conditions requiring surgical therapy are very common in small animal practice. Therefore, we have created this gastrointestinal surgery textbook to serve as a current and comprehensive reference tool for general practitioners, surgery residents in training, and surgeons.
For each technique described, tips are included by the authors to explain the surgeon’s preferences among all the techniques depicted, and to give details to help the reader perform the procedures effectively. Our intent for adding tips was to allow chapter authors the ability to express their preferences in technique, many of which are not evidence‐based.
In this textbook we placed a strong emphasis on description of surgical techniques. We chose not to delve heavily in the pathophysiology or the diagnostic workup for the different surgical conditions mentioned because those topics are well described in other textbooks.
