Canine and Feline Formulary
The latest edition of the BSAVA Small Animal Formulary, 11th edition – Part A: Canine and Feline sees Fergus Allerton return as Editor-in-Chief.
The drug monographs were thoroughly revised and updated by the Editorial Panel during 2022 to ensure that they provide the most up-to-date information available on the medicines used to treat dogs and cats.

BSAVA Manual of Practical Veterinary Welfare
Awareness of animal sentience and welfare continues to grow in parallel with that of human mental health.
The BSAVA Manual of Practical Veterinary Welfare, edited by Matthew Rendle and Jo Hinde-Megarity, is for the whole practice team and provides concise practical information on how to assess and maintain the highest standards of welfare in all veterinary environments. Written by a team of experts from a range of disciplines, the Manual is relevant to all veterinary professionals and animal carers, as well as those studying animal welfare and behaviour.
This book takes a holistic approach to animal health and considers the welfare of the veterinary team.
- Covers a wide range of species, including cats, dogs, exotic companion animals and zoo animals
- The One Health chapter discusses the positive and detrimental aspects of pet ownership and animal contact
- Integrates ethics and theory with quantifiable measurement of welfare and evidence-based practical solutions
- The Manual contains a series of forms to help with admissions and behaviour consultations. These are available to download and print from the BSAVA library.
