This successful book, first published in 1980 and now in its fourth edition, provides an authoritative guide for busy practitioners trying to keep pace with current trends in small animal orthopaedic surgery. In this new edition Hamish Denny and Steven Butterworth have retained the same practical approach but have completely rewritten and updated the book to provide a comprehensive review of orthopaedic and spinal conditions in the dog and cat. The illustrations have also undergone a major overhaul and the many line drawings are now combined with photographs and radiographs to clarify diagnostic and surgical techniques. Although the size of the book has increased, its regional approach to problems still enables the reader to use it as a rapid reference guide. It will prove an invaluable source of information for veterinary practitioners diagnosing and treating orthopaedic and spinal problems, while postgraduate students taking further qualifications in orthopaedics will find a sound basis for their studies and further reading provided here.

Cats are not referred to specialists as frequently as dogs, meaning the general practitioner must routinely treat cats that have been involved in road traffic accidents and other musculoskeletal trauma. This book is the first of its kind to provide a practical and user-friendly guide to feline orthopaedics. With a new author team, led by RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Orthopaedics) and Veterinary Neurology Harry Scott, the second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. New chapters cover Physiotherapy and Oncology of the Feline Skeletal System. The book includes highly structured fully referenced text that provides a concise, straightforward guide to the recognition and management of specific diseases and conditions. In this new edition, the neurological causes of lameness have been given more in-depth discussion, with an emphasis on early recognition of clinical signs and diagnosis. The disorder sections are now divided into those likely to be associated with trauma (fractures and luxation) and those which are congenital or developmental. The text is supported by high quality radiographs, colour photographs and colour line drawings to illustrate principles, techniques and procedures. Combining their experience in practice and education, the authors have produced a book that appeals to general practice veterinarians, specialist feline practitioners and to students.

Building on the success of the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Arthrology, this new Manual has broadened its remit to cover conditions of bone, tendon and muscle, to provide a ready reference for the small animal practitioner faced with a dog or cat showing lameness, stiffness or joint pain. The early parts of the Manual deal with generic issues related to the biology, diseases and treatment of bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Arthritis is addressed in detail, with notes on the modern approach to management. Chapters on surgical principles and instrumentation, biomaterials, arthroscopy and postoperative management address the general issues encountered in joint surgery. Chapters focussed on each of the major synovial joints, including the temporomandibular joint, then follow. Each of these joint-specific chapters deals with basic anatomy and surgical approaches, before describing the conditions that affect the particular joint. Common surgical procedures on joints are described with the use of Operative Techniques. Possible pitfalls and key points are highlighted, so as to make maximum use of the experience of the international panel of authors. The Operative Techniques are illustrated with the specially commissioned colour drawings that are so much a hallmark of BSAVA Manuals.
