[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
