Rabbits make up a considerable and growing proportion of the caseload in small animal practice, and both interest and knowledge in rabbit medicine and surgery has grown rapidly. In recognition of this, the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine and Surgery has been superseded by two separate volumes - the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Surgery, Dentistry and Imaging and the BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine. There is an increased understanding of the pathology of common diseases and greater awareness both of new conditions affecting this species and of their response to both disease and treatment regimes. This new BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine features new chapters such as ‘The rabbit-friendly practice’, ‘Neoplasia’, and ‘Endocrine disease’. Other chapters have been updated and expanded, and the introduction of new authors has brought fresh insights and opinions to several topics. The authors provide a greater depth and breadth of coverage for practitioners seeking definitive and authoritative information to improve and refine the quality of veterinary care that they can provide for rabbits. These two manuals now provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of rabbit veterinary care currently available, in an easy-to-use, well illustrated format following the tried and tested BSAVA Manual template.

Rabbits make up a considerable proportion of the caseload in small animal practice, and knowledge of rabbit medicine and surgery has grown rapidly in the past decade such that one BSAVA Manual is no longer enough to do justice to this important pet. The all-new BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Surgery, Dentistry and Imaging concentrates on the major surgical and dental conditions that are so common in rabbits, while its sister volume (BSAVA Manual of Rabbit Medicine) concentrates on common medical conditions. To maximize surgical success, anaesthesia and analgesia are first discussed, including practical advice on different regimes for different situations/risk levels, chemical pain relief and also hospitalization and postoperative care. A section on imaging follows, covering not only radiographic techniques and their interpretation, but also ultrasonography, endoscopy, CT and MRI. The third part of the Manual is devoted to surgical techniques. General principles of rabbit surgery are discussed, as well as specific surgical techniques and procedures, from basic techniques such as neutering to more specialized techniques used in each organ system. The final section is devoted to dental disease and abscessation, including the techniques required for a full dental examination and evaluation. The range of treatment techniques available for cheek tooth overgrowth and dental abscesses is highlighted, and the reader is encouraged to draw their own conclusions as to the correct method to use in each case. Illustrated step-by-step Operative Techniques are provided for surgical and dental procedures, to enable the reader to benefit from the expertise of the international authors.
