Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The sheer variety of toxic elements that small pets can be exposed to both in the home and outside is eye-opening. Everything from bread dough to batteries to, depending on where you live, bufo toads can rapidly prove fatal. This book has been designed to help veterinary clinicians correctly diagnose and begin treating such cases in the shortest amount of time possible, and as such, it features a very clean and readable layout for quick accessibility." (Book News Inc., February 2011)

"Packs in key details on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of toxicoses and is arranged by major categories of toxicants to aid in rapid diagnosis by poisonings. More in-depth detail is added from BLACKWELL'S FIVE-MINUTE VETERINARY CONSULT: CANINE AND FELINE, with over 70 additional toxicants covered, more clinical applications reviewed, and tables of detail added to appendixes for quick diagnosis. No practicing vet's clinic should be without!" (Midwest Book Review, February 2011)

I wouldn't listen to anything this woman named jacqueline Neilson has to say. Any woman that endorses cat mutilation (de-clawing) as a result to protect a couch needs to have her head examined. Let me ask you this jacqueline: Why don't you do it? Why don't you have your fingernails removed. It's certainly not dangerous or harmful in anyway. You said that about cats. Why don't you spend the rest of your life without fingernails and then tell us it doesn't bother you. What right do you have to tell people de-clawing is" okay be considered after other avenues to minimize property damage have been tried". Let me tell you this Jacqueline: De-clawing should NEVER be considered. Please find a different occupation that doesn't involve animals. Anyone should know that a woman with your ethics is not qualified to write a book about animals let alone give advice of any kind.
