The only way to become familiar with the names and uses of veterinary instruments is by repeatedly viewing them - the kind of hands-on proficiency that simple textbook descriptions can't provide! Veterinary Instruments and Equipment: A Pocket Guide is an innovative resource designed to help students master veterinary instrument identification, as well as being a helpful aid when taking instrument inventory in the veterinary office. This flip-book method helps readers memorize and quickly identify instruments at a glance, with a photograph or illustration of the instrument on the top page, and a full description of the instrument on the bottom page - including its name, function, and key characteristics. The picture of each instrument makes an ideal flashcard that readers can use to quiz themselves or others.

  • More than 320 high-quality, full-color illustrations.
  • For many instruments, a full photo is presented along with close-ups of the working end(s) of the instrument to help facilitate accurate instrument identification, especially in similar looking instruments.
  • Two pages for each instrument: a picture of the instrument on the top page with the instrument's name, functions, and characteristics on the bottom page allows students to view both pages at the same time to learn about the instrument.
  • Covers instruments and equipment for small and large animals and all common procedures.
  • Includes chapters devoted to general veterinary surgical instruments to educate technicians who assist in special procedures and for veterinary students who will perform the specialty surgeries.
  • Each instrument description consistently uses the same three categories: name, function, and characteristics to make study and memorization easier.
  • Covers restraint equipment for all species of large and small animals.
  • Flashcard format helps students to learn and retain information.
  • Handy pocket size makes it convenient to carry and use at any time.
  • Spiral binding allows the book to lay flat or fold over to make visible just the instrument, just its description, or both.
