This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. The second edition of Clinical Procedures in Veterinary Nursing continues to provide a detailed 'skills analysis' of all the clinical procedures likely to be performed by a veterinary nurse in practice.

Using its unique systematic approach, the book explains practical procedures used daily in veterinary practice, covering all aspects of a veterinary nurse's tasks, concentrating on small animal procedures. Clearly illustrated, with accompanying text provided in an accessible action-rationale format, each procedure includes an explanation of the theory behind the action, thus linking the classroom with clinical practice. With many additional and updated procedures this new edition concurs with current standards and introduces the most modern techniques to the veterinary nurse.

"Overall, it is a book that I would recommend to be in the veterinary practice library to complement student veterinary nurses' learning during their training programmes and as an excellent refresher for qualified nurses." Reviewed by: Victoria Bowes, Veterinary Record Date: 31/05/2014

Amazing book for Veterinary Nursing students


I bought this product in the hopes that it would make things clearer while studying and during placement, and it's turned out to be the perfect companion to my studies. The directions and diagrams are clear and having the reasoning behind those directions really helps. It covers every aspect of nursing that I need and will definitely last through my Certificate II, IV and beyond.

"This book is excellent and very interesting to read. As a student currently studying as a Veterinary Care Assistant I have found this book invaluable, not only does it talk to you through how to perform each procedures step by step, it also explains why you are doing each step. The diagrams are very good and each picture is explained in thorough detail. This book is a must for anyone working with small animals. The animal handling and restraint chapter is useful for everyone, whether kennel staff or qualified nurse. It is well organised, very informative and useful for quickly revising a procedure that you are unsure of or maybe not carried out recently. New to this edition is the chapter 'Preparing for the Nursing Exams' - this is a particularly helpful addition. The revision technique and preparing for the exam countdown, ensures that you can be as ready and organised as possible. I would highly recommend this book as it is easy ro understand and extremely useful for revision and day to day life in practise." - TP Times, January 2009
