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.

Veterinary arthroscopy for the small animal practitioner


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

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.
