BSAVA publishes new Guide to Procedures in Small Animal Practice

14 March 2024

The BSAVA has launched the third edition of the BSAVA Guide to Procedures in Small Animal Practice. The new edition of this essential step-by-step guide to the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures routinely performed in practice has been fully updated and includes new video content.

Four new procedures have been included: cystostomy tube placement; endotracheal intubation; point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS); and wet-to-dry dressings. In addition to the wealth of new images and illustrations included throughout the text, this new edition sees the introduction of a suite of high-definition videos. Designed to augment the text and highlight precise techniques, these videos have been designed as a ‘go to’ resource to reference prior to performing a procedure. Access to the videos is included with the printed book.

Nick Bexfield and Julia Riggs, Editors of the new edition, said: “We have built upon the success of the previous editions by responding to the feedback received from the BSAVA readership, and hope this new guide helps to further increase the confidence and accuracy with which these procedures are performed.”

The third edition of the BSAVA Guide to Procedures in Small Animal Practice, along with the accompanying suite of procedural videos, provides an indispensable resource for experienced veterinary surgeons and nurses, graduates, and students alike.

Print copies are available through the BSAVA store, you can also access the digital version in the BSAVA Library. Prices are £45.50 for BSAVA members; £70.00 for non-members.
