Summary: The fact that all veterinarians see emergencies on a regular basis, and the increasing importance of emergency medicine and critical care in veterinary medicine, have helped make this one of the best-selling books in The Secrets Seriesʼ and in veterinary medicine and critical care. Dr. Wingfield is one of the preeminent authorities in this field, and the new edition is completely revised and updated, featuring a number of new authors, with new chapters on disaster medicine and the transfusion trigger. Critical care management of dogs and cats are also covered.
