An acknowledged classic in its field, Veterinary Anaesthesia 11th edition has undergone a thorough revision to bring you the latest information in a more accessible format than ever before. The book meets the needs of several groups. For students, it provides basic concepts and 'how to' advice on anaesthetizing animals. For veterinarians in practice or those working with laboratory animals it's an excellent reference that draws on both the considerable experience of the authors and on published scientific data. Those wishing to specialize in veterinary anaesthesia will find it a stimulating introduction to the subject. This revision has been expanded to incorporate evidence-based information, additional chapters on advances in analgesia, anaesthesia of small mammals, fish and wildlife, and updated information on cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR).

The wide range of species covered and the clear descriptions of basic principles, techniques and equipment, coupled with an extensive literature review, make Veterinary Anaesthesia 11th edition your essential companion whether in classroom or in clinic.

"The different anaesthetic methods are described in detail and, in the second part of the book, species specificities are also taken into account. No doubt this will be a reference throughout your professional career, whatever path you follow." Reviewed by: Tomorrow's Vets Date: July 2014

"The layout is attractive and easy to use, and the book covers both general principles and practical advice. It should be on the shelves of every veterinary practice and in every student's library." Reviewed by: Polly Taylor. Date: July 2014
