From the Publisher
Small Animal Anesthesia and Analgesia fulfills its intended purpose of being a quick review for veterinary students or a rapid reference for busy practitioners. It is succinct and concise without dumbing down the subject. Should readers elect to pursue any of the topics in greater depth, they are directed to appropriate seminal references.” (JAVMA, February 2009)
