Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Peter D. Constable, BVSc (Hons), MS, (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This veterinary book provides a concise summary of large animal internal medicine, with an emphasis on North American diseases of horses, cattle, and small ruminants. Economically unimportant or rare diseases and exotic species are not covered.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to prepare veterinary students for licensing examinations, and to provide a brief overview for licensed veterinarians contemplating a change in career to large animal medicine. These laudable goals are met.
Audience: The target audience is primarily final year veterinary students, and the author and contributors are well qualified to write such a text.
Features: This book is consistent in style and well indexed, but it contains very few illustrations and no references. It is organized by systems, with further logical subsystem compartmentalization. Information is presented in note form under specific etiologic agents, which is appropriate for exam preparation, but less useful in a clinical setting where assistance in formulating differential diagnoses is needed. Questions are provided at the end of each system chapter to evaluate knowledge base and comprehension. These questions are well written and help achieve the author's stated goals.
Assessment: The book should be of value in assisting veterinarians to prepare for licensing examinations in North America.
