This new book on veterinary surgery focuses on the gastrointestinal tract and accessory organs of digestion in small animals. Its educational approach, through the description of 30 surgical cases, provides the reader with a better understanding when it comes to perform surgeries in dogs and cats with gastrointestinal disorders. Both simple cases and more complex ones are addressed, covering a wide range of situations that the veterinary surgeon may be faced with in the practice. For each case, the authors include the case history, the physical examination, the surgical preparation and technique, as well as additional considerations and tips when necessary.
