Veterinary instruments and equipment a pocket guide 4th edition

Becoming familiar with veterinary instruments and equipment is a vital part of the veterinary technology curriculum. To become a valuable member of the clinical team, it is crucial that students learn to recognize individual veterinary instruments, their main function, and their special characteristics.

The Veterinary Instruments and Equipment, A Pocket Guide, 4th Edition was developed to help students who may not have access to these instruments when they are ready to study. A firm grasp of how these instruments are used increases the useful life span of the instruments and prevents injuries from improper use.

This book was designed in a flash card format so that one can flip the book to separate the picture from the name and descriptions. This allows students to quiz themselves. This self-study tool features instruments and equipment used in all aspects of veterinary medicine. Get Now: Small Animal Dermatology A Color Atlas and Therapeutic Guide 4th Edition

The book is organized into two sections. Restraint, medical, and diagnostic instruments are covered in the first section. Surgical instruments are covered in the second section and are organized beginning with general surgical instruments and proceeding to specialized instruments for orthopedic and ophthalmic procedures.

The original list of instruments and equipment to be included was reviewed by veterinary technician educators from all parts of the United States and Canada, and many were added at their suggestion. If any have been missed, it is not for lack of trying, but let us know if you have ideas for others to include in the next edition.
