This book is designed to provide insights into procedures and problems associated with anesthesia of small animals and other pets. This includes preemptive methodology and ways of dealing with specific situations associated with anesthesia. It has been prepared for small animal veterinarians, technicians and students not only to provide practical information about anesthesia and pain management but problem solving issues about breeds, surgical procedures, geriatrics and disease conditions that place certain patients at higher risk for anesthesia. Modern methods of monitoring the anesthetized patient are described to help in this process as well. Although the book is primarily focused on dogs and cats, it includes information on restraint, preanesthetics, anesthetic procedures, monitoring and use of analgesics for birds, exotic cats, skunks, ferrets, raccoons, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, mice, gerbils, rabbits, fish, and reptiles. 374 p.
