Within each section, topics include restraint, diagnostic testing, bandaging, diagnostic imaging, surgery and anesthesia, fluid therapy, medical and surgical nursing by body system, and euthanasia and necropsy. A full-color format ensures clarity and the educational value of illustrations. Photographs and line drawings show restraint, bandaging, physical examination techniques, and diagnostic procedures. A practical approach makes this text useful in clinical situations, so veterinary technicians, acting under instructions of veterinarians, can plan and follow through on procedures and treatment regimens for large animals. Step-by-step descriptions help veterinary technicians understand medical and surgical procedures that they do not normally perform, including why, how, and the roles they fill. Proper medical terminology and common/layperson terminology are both used, helping veterinary technicians communicate effectively with clients and other professionals. A pictorial glossary of large animal instrumentation and equipment is included in the appendix.
