Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Guillaume R Ragetly, DVM, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This sixth edition of a handbook of drugs approved and/or used for veterinary species includes more than 70 new monographs, a new section on topical medications, and updates on ophthalmic drugs, small animal therapeutic diets, and many drug monographs. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The basic premise remains to provide a single reference to assist in providing optimal drug therapy for veterinary patients. This book is a helpful update of the previous editions allowing it to remain the reference for veterinary drug therapy.
Audience: This is an essential reference for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, pharmacists, other health professionals, and libraries. The author and contributors are all well known authorities in the field.
Features: The handbook contains the latest information on veterinary drugs, including details on monitoring, chemistry, storage, side-effects and dosages, new overdose information, along with sidebars of color-coded prescribing highlights. This edition features a two-color format and a redesigned monograph layout, which enables faster access to much-needed information.
Assessment: The result is an invaluable handbook that will be an essential acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library as well as an easy to use reference for daily practice. This edition provides important updates and new features which make it a valuable book compared to the previous edition. It remains the pharmacology resource every veterinarian needs to keep in easy reach.
From the Publisher
“This is an essential reference for veterinarians, veteirnary technicians, pharmacists, other health professionals, and libraries... an invaluable handbook that will be an essential acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library as well as an easy to use reference for daily practice. This edition provides important updates and new features which make it a valuable book compared to the previous editions. It remains the pharmacology resource every veterinarian needs to keep in easy reach.” - Doody's Reviews, May 2009

[Reviews of Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook, Sixth Edition: Desk Edition]

“A 'must' for any college-level veterinary reference holding or for any practicing vet or student vet: it packs in the latest details on veterinary drugs, including detail on monitoring, chemistry, storage, and dosages, and it offers sidebars of color-coded prescribing highlights. The result is an invaluable handbook that will prove a key, foundation acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library.” - Midwest Book Review, October 2008

“The 6th edition has several enhacements: a new design and layout, the addition of 75 new drug monographs, updates to older monographs, with a listing for rapid-scanning for potential drug interactions and overdose information for 50 drugs... and new sections. This edition, as in earlier editions, is essential for veterinarians and for institutions with veterinary medicine programs.” - ARBA Online, March 2009
