From the Publisher"This is a head-banging subject, which many try to steer clear of, made easy and fun - I wish there had been a book published of this kind when I was undergoing my veterinary nursing training. Every veterinary practice should have this affordable, easy-to-read book in its library, and it is a must for training practices. The foreword hits home the importance of mathematics in the veterinary world.
The 18 chapters are easily readable, with step-by-step instructions, and well-illustrated with relevant photographs and diagrams... Each chapter starts with an introduction, learning objectives and a calcualtion example. Once the reader has grasped the theory, he or she can then practise the calculations. Calculation errors commonly made in practice are highlighted and explained in plain terms, enabling readers to improve their practical skills.
Chapters 8 and 18 are important chapters for student animal nursing assistants (ANAs). Chapter 8 covers calculations for oral medications, which may help with the written exams, while chapter 18 covers mean, median and mode averages, which may assist with the client survey case log."
