"This book is a one stop shop for anyone who needs an answer fast and the alphabetically ordered format is well suited to this end...As to whether it is a worthwhile investment for any small animal practice I would say definitely yes, and if it is a practice with new or recent graduates then I would argue that it should be a top priority addition to the library." (Journal of Small Animal Practice,
February 2011)"Bigger and better… The recent edition of the most widely used book in general practice doesn′t fail its mission: to provide easy and fast help to the busy practitioner. It will take you more than 5 minutes to read the 13 pages [on anemia]... but you won’t miss any option! The appendix also contains lots of useful information such as endocrinology tests and toxic agents with their antidotes. A very complete drug formulary provides practical recommendations, including adverse effects and precautions, or the treatment of dogs and cats." (Vets Today

Finally, for someone who is teaching in a veterinary technician program this book would be an invaluable resource." (Veterinary Information Network, March 2010)
