Noordsy's Food Animal Surgery, formally known as Food Animal Surgery, has been updated with a new author, but still contains Dr.Noordy's excellent reference notes. The book was intended to be used as a quick reference text on food animal surgery techniques. Basic knowledge of performing surgeries is not covered as the author assumes that the reader has already covered this in other textbooks and schooling. This book is intended for specific surgical procedures, which encompass a vast array of possible surgical cases; hernias, intestinal obstructions, prolapses, male and female systems, ocular surgeries, fractures, abdominal surgeries, and surgical treatment for urolith.

Chapters included in the book also discuss general surgical considerations, surgical restraint, local anesthesia, and general anesthesia for the horse, pig, goat, sheep and cattle.Surgical procedures are broken down in each chapter listing general considerations, different possible surgical techniques to treat the condition, patient restraint, anesthesia, post care and advantages and disadvantages. Each chapter contains a list of suggested readings, study questions and side notes.

All the figures in the book can be downloaded for free in a power point format on the companion website, as well as a section that contains questions and answers to allow the reader to study from. Pictures are limited to only drawings. I would highly recommend this book to large animal veterinarians and to veterinary technicians that will be assisting with large animal surgeries.
