There was a long-felt demand from various corners of readers and professionals to update the book covering the the new syllabus of "Veterinary Surgery and Radiology" as prescribed by Veterinary Council of India. Authors feel happy to present his esteemed readers a thoroughly revised second edition of this important book as per the guidelines of Veterinary Council of India.

Veterinary Surgery is a comprehensive subject involving both sciences and art. It is a unique amalgamation of the knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Anaesthesiology, Radiology and many other specialisations. Besides, there are additional problems of dealing with various species of farm animals, pet animals and birds. As surgery is a clinical science, apart from theoretical knowledge it should imbibe a practical demonstrative approach so as to make the reader a good teacher, surgeon and researcher.

There are a lot of books involving Small Animal Surgery, Large Animal Surgery, Radiology, Anaesthesiology, Surgical Pathology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Avian Surgery, Equine Surgery, Bovine Surgery and so on. The students feel at sea when consulting these books to have basic information in Veterinary Surgery & Radiology' at under-graduate level. Further, the non-availability of these publications and their high cost are the other constraints. Veterinary Surgery has made considerable strides in recent years and the student needs to be abreast with the latest information in the discipline. Veterinary Council of India has introduced a uniform pattern of under-graduate course curriculum in Veterinary and Animal Husbandry throughout India.

Keeping all these points in view, we attempted to provide a comprehensive book that covers all the aspects of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology following the Veterinary Council of India (VCI) syllabus presently in vogue throughout India. Though it is very difficult to include all the minute details of this discipline into a single book, we tried to provide the information to the student in a semi outline format, point-wise especially for under-graduate students of B.V.Sc. & A.H. Besides Post-graduate students, teachers and field practitioners will be able to derive much benefit from this book.

We have tried to describe the text including many key points, considering information into tables and bullet form and illustrating procedures and surgical techniques with many simple line drawings. The inclusion of several photographs in different chapters obviously will be helpful for a better understanding of the students. We have correlated our own clinical experiences with information available in the literature and provided useful information in this book. At the end of the book, the addition of a chapter entitled "Glossary of Surgery" will definitely help to understand the terms and definitions related to Surgery.
