Product Description

Review

"...unquestionably one of the most useful, authoritative and most needed books to be published in the veterinary field for many years" -- -Australian Veterinary Journal-review of the first edition

"The dictionary is a pleasure to use, with adequate cross-referencing, sufficient multiple entries for compound terms, and good, concise definitions...It is hard to find any fault or error. This is a book which veterinarians have been waiting for, and will be in constant use." -- -British Veterinary Journal - review of the first edition

I am studying for a degree in Equine Science and I use this book all the time. It is the most used on my bookshelf for my assignments and I have also found it useful for refering to when revising or need something explained. It offers definitions which are detailed but easily understood. Definately worth its money

Not only is this book useful as a dictionary, is also a great reference for quick additional pieces of information. I find myself refering to it often while I am doing a piece of work. One of the most useful Veterinary books I have purchased so far!

I've had this dictionary since it was first published, and it has been WELL worth it and has been invaluable to me right through my biology a-levels to now being in my second year of a degree in animal management, it is never far from my side when I'm doing an assignment, and without it I'm lost, whether its to find proper definitions for a quote or to check something it is just sooo handy, both for my course and as a serious pet owner, trying to decipher some of the technical terms used in articles and textbooks. Overall, I can't fault it, and I can't see myself ever wanting to part with my copy!

I'm currently studying Animal Behaviour and Welfare which includes a Veterinary Science module. I have found this book to be an excellent reference when writing assignments and always have it next to me!

This is THE book for veterinary medicine. You'll never have it far from you when studying. There's a newer version now. See no difference really except for a few pictures, and it is more cumbersome. Studying side by side with a friend, we've yet to find an entry in one that is not in the other.
This is my top rated book so far. I love it.

Brilliant revision aid for all stages of veterinary study. Descriptions are precise yet understandable, and personally I find using this book much easier than some of the internet information sites as you find an exact answer, straight to the point. An extra bonus is extensive 'back page' categories, detailing animal anatomy, lab service information, clinical notes and 'veterinary professional' information
