License note: One user at a time; please close browser when finished

Complications in Equine Surgery offers evidence-based information on the description, prevention, recognition, management, consequences and prognosis of technical and post-procedural complications in equine surgery. The text uses a clear and practical approach organized by body system, with coverage including the gastrointestinal, respiratory, musculoskeletal, urogenital, and neurological systems. Each chapter also follows a similar format that includes a short introduction of the procedure, technical complications, and post-operative complications. General practitioners and specialists alike will find Complications in Equine Surgery a must-have resource to improve morbidity and mortality and increase surgical success.


Demystifying Dog Behaviour for the Veterinarian


Demystifying Dog Behaviour for the Veterinarian / Kendal Shepherd

License note: One user at a time; please close browser when finished.

The behaviour textbook that’s been missing! – Dr Mandy Roshier, University of Nottingham, School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, UK This practical guide for busy veterinarians demystifies the apparently complex nature of canine behaviour while simultaneously emphasising its importance. Authored by acclaimed veterinary behaviour consultant Kendal Shepherd, the book provides practical knowledge of dog behaviour and an understanding of how to talk about it with clients. Shepherd shows how this can enhance the relationship between owner and pet and between dog and environment, including the vet surgery, as well as improve the vet’s own sense of fulfilment and enjoyment of practice. From a discussion on the true nature of obedience to stressing the importance of behavioural indicators when assessing pain and mental welfare and finally by reminding vets of their obligations under Dangerous Dogs legislation, the emphasis is on the prevention of aggression throughout. Packed with anecdotes drawn from real-life cases, easy to read and understand, the principles explained can be effortlessly assimilated into the average consultation without the need for lengthy report-writing.


Equine Hematology, Cytology and Clinical Chemistry


Equine hematology, cytology, and clinical chemistry / edited by Raquel M. Walton, Rick L. Cowell, Amy C. Valenciano

License note: One user at a time; please close browser when finished.

Equine Clinical Pathology, Second Edition draws on the hematology and clinical chemistry information from the first edition and adds valuable cytopathology and hematology material from Diagnostic Cytology and Hematology of the Horse, making it a truly definitive reference to clinical pathology in equids. Thoroughly updated and expanded throughout, the Second Edition offers more images, more information, and new knowledge, particularly in the areas of bone marrow evaluation and cytopathology. This revised edition is a must-have purchase for anyone using hematology, cytology, and clinical chemistry in equine patients. Designed to present clear, concise, and clinically relevant information, the book is logically organized for easy reference. Chapters begin with lists of abbreviations, and images and tables support the text, with information summarized in text where possible for ease of use. Equine Clinical Pathology is a valuable resource for equine practitioners, clinical pathologists and residents, and veterinary students.

Veterinary arthroscopy for the small animal practitioner


Veterinary arthroscopy for the small animal practitioner / edited by Timothy C. McCarthy

License note: One user at a time; please close browser when finished.

Arthroscopy provides more information about intra-articular pathology than any other diagnostic technique. The most important advantages of arthroscopy are visual access to more joint area, magnification produced by the telescopes and video systems, excellent illumination, and a clear visual field when continuous irrigation is employed. Arthroscopy is also minimally invasive; reduces trauma, shortens operative times, and decreases recovery times. The small sizes of telescopes available today allows placement into the deepest parts of joints and combined with angulation of the field of view, 30 degrees for most arthroscopes, provides visual access to more area of joints than can be achieved with open surgery. Arthroscopes magnify intra-articular structures allowing visualization of anatomical details and pathologic changes that are beyond the resolution of radiographs, CT, MRI or what can be seen with open surgery.

Make Your Research Open

At MU Libraries, we’re committed to making access to research more sustainable, affordable and open. And we need your help!

In traditional publishing models, scholars surrender their copyright to commercial publishers in order to disseminate their research findings in scholarly journals. Publishers then sell or rent that same content back to the institution through journal subscriptions—at ever increasing prices. This unsustainable practice costs institutions millions of dollars every year and creates barriers to access for many. Open access publishing encourages scholars to retain their rights and make their work freely available online, increasing the availability and impact of research.  

What You Can Do:  

Retain Your Rights: No matter where you publish, the single most important thing you can do to make scholarly publishing more sustainable and equitable is Retain Your Rights. It’s your copyright – don’t just sign it away! Contracts are often negotiable. And read those agreements: you may have more rights to share your research than you realize.  

Know Your Options: Choose the right venue for your research and know your open access options. If you’re an editor or manuscript reviewer, ask about the journal’s OA options. 

Share Your Work: Deposit your research in MOspace, MU’s Digital Institutional Repository. Submitting your work to MOspace is easy. Just log in with your SSO and complete the Creative Commons license.

Learn More: Talk with your Subject Specialist about open access in your area or request a Zoom workshop for your department, team or lab.
