Product Description

Review

Despite using the word "dictionary" in the title, this book is a lot more. As well as a definition, additional facts are provided that are useful for an immediate clinical situation, or an at-home study perspective. Dozens of well drawn illustrations are included, which aid the understanding of the relevant explanation as well as breaking down the monotonous nature of normal dictionaries.
The book has been designed with day-to-day usage by veterinary nurses in mind. The cover is made from a hard-wearing, washable, flexible plastic and the size is A5, which will fit into a standard nurse uniform pocket.
It really is a little powerhouse of a book, full of practical and comprehensive information. It specifically suits veterinary nurses, whether qualified or still training, but would also be useful for receptionists and veterinary students.
Overall, this dictionary gets a "4-star" rating from me and should be part of any veterinary nurse's arsenal of learning tools.
The Veterinary Record, June 2008

The third edition of The Veterinary Nursing, contains a broader range of terms and species than previous editions. This work is intended for those "in veterinary nursing and associated animal health professions.whether in training or in working practice” as well as for those working alongside these professions. The Dictionary of Veterinary Nursing will be a useful and practical reference tool for those seeking a simple, compact and reasonably priced introduction to the field.

Reference Reviews, January 2009 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

this is a mickey-mouse book. it is O.K for very simple and non-explanatory answers to your questions, however it was not useful as a proper study aid and i would not recommend it. if you are looking for a good dictionary, look for Saunders Comprehensive Veterinary Dictionary - it's excellent.

Very basic, a good starting point for pre VNs or reception staff, but i would not recommend it for SVNs or VNs - go for saunders veterinary dictionary.

I feel like this book has been great for me - I am using it to help me with my veterinary nursing degree and has everything in it that I need. I feel it explains everything to a point where you can understand it properly, without making it patronizing. Great wee buy for myself and i am happy with eveything - even the size as it does not take up a lot of room!

This book is excellent for the student VN and other veterinary practice staff. It contains the really basic terminology up to the more advanced. I use it alongside my studies and couldn't be without it even after five years working in this field.
It's a sound investment!

I think this is a great little book, and a perfect staring point to get all the basic knowledge you need. I am currently studying for my Animal Nursing Assistants Certificate and will be going on to do the degree in VN next year. This book had been a great help getting all the basic knowledge I need and I now feel much more comfortable going on to the degree having read this book.

Could not have got through my degree without this book. Great for when in class and not sure of something, can look it up very quickly. Nice small size, but very concise. Excellent and simple explanations. A must have for any veterinary nursing student!

Probably the best book that I have brought for my Veterinary Nursing Course, defiantly the one I have used the most! great size to fit in your bag to take to lectures ad look up terms there and then that you don't know.
