What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Not only will it be of benefit to veterinarians; I foresee it being valuable to veterinary students, particularly for revision, and pharmacists who stock veterinary medicines." (Veterinary Record, 17 December 2011)

"Sidebars of prescriber highlights accompany in-depth details in a ‘must' for any vet's library." (The Midwest Book Review, 1 November 2011)

Reviews of the Previous Edition:

"A 'must' for any college-level veterinary reference holding or for any practicing vet or student vet: it packs in the latest details on veterinary drugs, including detail on monitoring, chemistry, storage, and dosages, and it offers sidebars of color-coded prescribing highlights. The result is an invaluable handbook that will prove a key, foundation acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library." (Midwest Book Review, October 2008)

"The 6th edition has several enhancements: a new design and layout, the addition of 75 new drug monographs, updates to older monographs, with a listing for rapid-scanning for potential drug interactions and overdose information for 50 drugs ... and new sections. This edition, as in earlier editions, is essential for veterinarians and for institutions with veterinary medicine programs." (ARBA Online, March 2009)

"As a veterinary technician, I have enjoyed perusing this book and find it is not only a great reference for the job but also for home use, deciphering medication for any one of seven dogs or five cats currently residing in my home. For this reason, I am betwixt and between as to whether this book should remain in the pets’ medicine cabinet or go to work to reside on my office book shelf. Perhaps I need another copy and that is perhaps the best endorsement of all." (VIN, February 2010)

"This is an essential reference for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, pharmacists, other health professionals, and libraries. ... An invaluable handbook that will be an essential acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library as well as an easy to use reference for daily practice. This edition provides important updates and new features which make it a valuable book compared to the previous editions. It remains the pharmacology resource every veterinarian needs to keep in easy reach." (Doody's, May 2009)
