The ability to repair and manage fractures is an everyday necessity in practice, and this new edition builds on the foundation laid by its predecessor, with an increased focus on implants, grafts and surgery.

Previous sections have been expanded and updated: the manual gives a detailed overview of specific fractures and how to approach them; principles of fracture surgery and the necessary techniques and complications – such as disease or implant failure – and how to deal with them. The text is accompanied by full–colour illustrations and step–by–step guides, ensuring that information is both easy to follow and comprehensive.

"This book bridges the gap between basic orthopedic texts and advanced works regarding fracture management in small animals...The amount of information this book contains regarding fracture management in cats is particularly noteworthy...The section on implants is one of the most comprehensive aggregations of information on that topic available...The illustrations and photographs add tremendously to understanding...The authors should be congratulated on creating a successful textbook that should be in the library of every veterinary orthopedic surgeon." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 15/03/2017)
