Veterinary Euthanasia Techniques: A Practical Guide provides detailed guidance on euthanasia procedures in a wide variety of species, including dogs, cats, exotics, horses, and production animals. Based on the current AVMA guidelines, the book offers step-by-step descriptions of the recommended methods of euthanasia, with additional information on client communication, equipment, and aftercare. Veterinary Euthanasia Techniques helps practitioners, students, and technicians expand their knowledge base and provide competent, compassionate veterinary care during this difficult stage in a pet's life. Divided into sections on small animals, exotic pets, equine species, and production animals, each section gives a detailed account of the euthanasia appointment from start to finish. Veterinary Euthanasia Techniques puts complete information on euthanasia at the practitioner's fingertips, offering specific advice to improve skills and aid in decision making.
