Over the last few years, rabbits have become more popular as pets. With more families keeping rabbits, so grows the need for more veterinary clinics to learn how to care and treat these small and fragile pocket pets. This BSAVA formally was titled the Manual of Rabbit Medicine and Surgery, however currently the book has been re-created into two separate books. In true BSAVA form, the authors bring the reader an easy to follow book with an extensive amount of information on how to perform anesthesia, radiograph positioning, ultrasounds, CT and MRI, endoscopy, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, and dental procedures to the rabbit.

Chapters include, but are not limited to, a huge section on rabbit specific procedures; V-gel placement, drug dosages tailored to rabbits, venipuncture of marginal ear veins, dental blocks, dental radiograph positioning and spay and neutering techniques. There is a large section in this book on radiographic and ultrasound interpretation of the normal anatomy of the rabbit, and abnormal findings. The surgery section covers intestinal obstruction, cystotomies, liver biopsy, and total ear canal ablations, to name a few.  A chapter devoted to eye and eyelid conditions examines the differences of the rabbit eye from other mammals, and discusses rabbit specific disorders as well as surgeries to correct eye related issues.

This is an excellent book for the veterinarian that will need to perform medical procedures and surgeries on the rabbit. The veterinary technician will find this book to be extremely helpful when needing to take radiographs and administering anesthesia for the rabbit. Overall this book is a must have for the clinic that will be seeing the rabbit in the clinical situation.
