Sensitive to the growing size of the textbook, this edition has been thoughtfully revised to maximize content and value without extending its length. This is a particular challenge for any editing team and could not have been possible without the talent of my new co-editor, Dr. John Thomas, whom I am delighted to welcome to our team.
This edition continues to be heavily illustrated with hundreds of photographs and line drawings in full color, and it includes numerous tables and boxes. Each chapter begins with a list of key terms and a series of learning objectives. Technician notes continue to be a helpful study tool for students. A comprehensive glossary that has been assembled from the key terms appears at the end of the text.
A major goal of this edition is to introduce the concept of the Veterinary Technician Practice Model, a list of Technician Evaluations (analogous to the Nursing Diagnosis), and the importance of critical thinking in clinical practice. These themes have been threaded throughout the textbook in the form of expanded numbers of case presentations, but also directly in Chapters 1, 2, and 3 (Introduction, Laws and Ethics, and Medical Record Keeping), and in Chapters 19 and 20 (Small and Large Animal Medicine). Chapter 24, “Fluid Therapy and Transfusion Medicine,” is a brand new chapter.
As in former editions, one-third of the textbook has been completely rewritten, with new authors, ideas, and approaches. We have taken on the challenge of generating a fresh, new textbook without expanding its length and weight. Therefore, we have selected its content carefully. In addition, chapter outlines have been expanded to facilitate navigation through each chapter. Finally, each of the 29 new contributors to this edition is an expert in his or her respective field.
