BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Endoscopy and Endosurgery
Edited by: Philip Lhermette and David Sobel
Surgery in the human field is carried out using minimally invasive techniques wherever possible.

People nowadays expect minimally invasive surgery for themselves, and are very receptive to these procedures for their pets.
