    The second edition of the BSAVA Pocketbook for Vets is now available. Building on the success of the previous edition, this new book retains the functionality and useful features that made its predecessor so popular, while having a stronger focus on quick reference emergency and critical care information. The emergency and critical care topics covered in this edition include:
    • How to recognize and treat common poisoning cases, including anticoagulant rodenticides, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), grapes and chocolate
    • Pain scoring in cats and dogs with examples of the scales available
    • Metabolic and respiratory causes of acid–base disturbances and how to interpret results
    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) covering both basic and advanced life support and the drugs required for treatment.The pocketbook condenses and summarizes information from the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary, alongside a wide range of the BSAVA Manuals and Guides, to provide the most salient information at a glance. The inclusion of a number of blank notes pages means that the reader can personalize their copy to suit their needs.

    Sheldon Middleton returns to the role of editor, and has drawn upon personal experience and feedback from the veterinary community, to revise, update and expand the already successful pocketbook for this latest edition.

    He said: “The BSAVA has published a significant body of information that is useful to the veterinary practitioner. It is a testament to the Association that a volume such as this is both necessary and possible.”

    The BSAVA Pocketbook for Vets, 2nd edition is available from the BSAVA website: or by phone: 01452 726700.
