1.0 out of 5 stars Crap
Sorry guys, but I must disagree with the very positive reviews of this dictionary. I thought it was crap and would have returned it if I had not received it as part of a course I was doing. I went straight out and bought Saunders veterinary dictionary, Balliere's (?) is also good but some pages are repeated in some editions which is just plain annoying.
I wouldn't...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great veterinary dictionary, 6 May 2010
This review is from: Black's Student Veterinary Dictionary (Black's Veterinary Dictionary) (Paperback)
This is a great veterinary dictionary which includes concise veterinary information relevant to the UK.
I also own the Saunders comprehensive veterinary dictionary which covers more veterinary terms and has colour pictures but I personally prefer the Black's veterinary dictionary.The Saunders dictionary gives only the definition of a veterinary term.In comparison the Black's dictionary also offers an in-depth but concise explanation of each term and I found this quite helpful to grasp the essence of it.
I would strongly recommend this dictionary to any veterinary student.

I'm not a vet, but still aspire to be one. A great book for people who want to get a view into the world of veterinary.

Super product, great value, thanks once again, amazon!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black's Student Veterinary Dictionary (Black's Veterinary Dictionary) (Paperback)
This is a must-have general reference book for all veterinarians and offers excellent value for money ! Consider also Merck Veterinary Manual for around £25 and for a total of £40 there is enough reference material to answer most veterinary questions !

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for anything animal related, 27 Feb 2012
This review is from: Black's Student Veterinary Dictionary (Black's Veterinary Dictionary) (Paperback)
I loved this so much, got it as a present and it has helped me no end with research for my degree in animal behaviour as it sets everything out in a brilliant way which explains it and helps with examples when things are more complicated. It is animal specific for many things which is great.
Would recommend to anyone working with animals, even used it to help on the farm at home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking for Vets..., 28 April 2011
This review is from: Black's Student Veterinary Dictionary (Black's Veterinary Dictionary) (Paperback)
I've had this dictionary for quite a while and have constantly been let down when I look up a word to find its missing. Basic things like coronoid, fossa, tubercule, sulcrus, gyrs etc are all missing.

I have since donated my copy to the library and got the Saunders Comprehensive Dictionary which has for my revision periods been living on the arm of my sofa as I use it so much! It's a larger book, but I've yet to find a veterinary word that it is lacking!
