Written in a dictionary format, this book clearly describes the thousands of words that one may encounter at the veterinarian s office.

Dr. Coates has also included several charts in the appendices, covering commonly prescribed drugs, with their possible side effects and major uses; acronyms and abbreviations; weights, measures, and conversions; and normal physiologic parameters for a variety of companion animals and livestock. This is an excellent book for those people who include animals in their lives to use as a reference.
