Minor Veterinary Surgery – A Handbook for Veterinary Nurses PDF
It brings together all the information needed for a veterinary nurse to confidently approach minor surgical procedures in small animals. Based on a thorough grounding of surgical principles, the book takes a hands-on approach and focuses on applying theory to practice. The author has included clear instructions for performing a number of minor surgical techniques and offers practical advice in the form of handy hints and tips making this a highly accessible and user-friendly text.
Veterinary nursing as a profession has changed much in the last few years, with changes to the Veterinary Surgeons’ Act (schedule 3 amendments) and an increasing number of diploma holders. The role of the veterinary nurse is moving away from the outdated ‘kennel-maid’/anaesthetic assistant to encompass a wider range of activities,
including nursing consultations and health care clinics, in order to utilize more fully the excellent knowledge and training of the veterinary nurse.
This book is aimed at those veterinary nurses who want to learn more about surgical techniques and those who are already performing minor surgery but who want to improve. Other than providing information regarding the
reasoning behind minor surgical techniques, there are easy to-follow instructions for performing many minor surgical techniques. It is hoped that veterinary students and recent graduates may also find the book a useful source of reference.
