“A great tool for the farm vets of today. The regular boxed discussion points, tips and warnings make it easy to read when you need it most. Invaluable when quickly prepping on the way to a farm so I could assess the case with the benefit of knowledge”.

“A must-have for students and new graduates as well as a refresher for the more experienced practitioner. Overall a good combination of anatomy revision and surgical techniques providing good revision material and a quick reference guide when out in the field”.

“Provides a concise overview to provide readers with a basic understanding of surgical treatment options for various conditions. An easy read, written largely in outline and bulleted formats. Many illustrations help depict various procedures”.

“Wide range of diagnostic and surgical techniques described in the dot point form with helpful diagrams. Its up to date too, with both Janowitz and Christiansen techniques for laparoscopic correction of an LDA. I reckon anyone who owned this book would be empowered by it to undertake at least one useful procedure they hadn’t even heard of”.

“Text boxes provide a multitude of useful tips and often incorporate animal welfare and ethical implications of the practitioner’s decision-making, as well as pain management. A number of high-quality and up-to-date video resources on lameness complement the book on a newly implemented companion website, access through Wiley”.
