Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is an excellent short consult or review.... The tables of contents are listed alphabetically as well as by systems, which makes it easy to rapidly locate basic information on a given subject.  I find this text to be valuable for locating relevant information quickly to provide a reminder of important aspects of disease. It should prove useful to veterinary students, but more so to veterinarians with a solid scientific background." - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, September 2009

"The editors have done an excellent job of revising this edition. This is a must-have book for the equine practice or the veterinary student." - Veterinary Information Network
