Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Ted Whittem, BVSc, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a book that describes and discusses the formulation, manufacture, and some aspects of the registration process for veterinary pharmaceutical products.
Purpose: The editors have attempted to present this information in a logical and sequential fashion, relevant to the design selection and development of veterinary dosage forms. This aim has been achieved, providing a resource for people wishing to enter the veterinary pharmaceutical industry with a grasp of the considerations peculiar to production of animal dosage forms.
Audience: The editors and the chapter authors are all well recognized authorities in their particular fields and together their contributions comprise a coordinated presentation of the subject matter. This book will therefore be useful to graduate students studying in the pharmaceutical sciences and to veterinarians seeking employment in the pharmaceutical industry.
Features: Although some chapters are overillustrated and others might benefit from more illustrations, the text and illustrations are current and clear. The index would have been more useful had an hierarchical approach been used.
Assessment: This new edition offers marked expansion and updating over the previous edition. Some of the chapters are fairly wordy, but the information is reliable and useful. This book will be a very useful addition to library collections.
