Fluid therapy is one of the most important aspects of patient management in veterinary medicine, and this book provides guidelines for its safe implementation in clinical practice. It describes fluid compartments of the body and considers the factors that affect movement of administered water, electrolytes and colloids. It also covers characteristics of different fluid types, routes of fluid administration, and how to approach fluid supplementation. Finally, this book provides information regarding both general application and monitoring of fluid therapy, as well as consideration of an assortment of specific clinical circumstances. This book:

  • Provides the tools necessary to develop an appropriate fluid therapy plan for any small animal patient;
  • Includes careful consideration of potential adverse effects associated with fluid therapy to help optimize safety and efficacy of fluid administration;
  • Contains numerous color illustrations and is written by recognized experts from the USA.
With multiple case examples to help translate theory into practical advice, this valuable book provides a comprehensive and informative resource for veterinarians facing a range of clinical circumstances.
