Format: Paperback
Excellent book, the section on radiography positioning especially good: simple, accurate diagrams for each position needed for the OSCIs. Feel like i could have just read this book instead of spending a year at college!

As a core text on my university course of veterinary nursing I brought this book.
It's brilliant as it's far more compact compared to the BVSA books and is handier to just pop in your bag to take around with you.
It has really helpful sections and is good for reminding you bits and bobs that may stray from mind occasionally and saves your bacon!

This book is in very good condition on the whole except for what appears to be a faint tea stain near the beginning. I can still read the text so it's fine. Thank you
