Index
Summary In this concise and practical volume the authors describe and illustrate step by step all currently available reconstructive surgical techniques. The book covers both dogs and cats with skin defects caused by injury or tumour resection and the reader is given the widest possible range of treatment options for dealing with individual cases. After describing a new protocol for wound management in companion animals, and general, avascular and microvascular reconstructive techniques, the authors deal with specific techniques region by region: facial area and head, eyelids, neck and trunk, forelimb and hindlimb. Reconstructive Surgery and Wound Management of the Dog and Cat is an accessible overview and a source of practical help to improve treatment of patients with skin wounds. The book incorporates concise text, precise instructions and a wealth of top-quality colour images
