Summary:The past 20 years has seen a remarkable growth in the knowledge base and skillset available in small animal practice - the range of specialist information now available may appear daunting to the relatively inexperienced veterinary surgeon looking for a concise answer to one of the many common problems presented in the consulting room. The BSAVA Manual of Canine Practice condenses the information from many important areas into a single volume. Written by vets with many years' experience in general practice, this Foundation Manual aims to provide the first port of call for the busy practitioner faced with uncertainty about a new case. Common sense, first line approaches are given in a problem-oriented setting stemming from the nose-to-tail examination.
