In many cases, surgery is still the main therapeutic tool used in the fight against cancer in small animals. That is why the objective of this book is to provide a manual that delves deeper into this discipline, drawing from the authors’ extensive experience.

Surgical Oncology provides an interesting collection of case studies, which are described by means of high qual- ity images and videos of the procedures and accompanied by diagrams and short discussions that turn the book into a highly practical resource.
