Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is well laid out, easy to read and has many well-written tables. . . as rabbits increase in popularity, this book should be a useful addition to nursing and veterinary libraries." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 11 November 2010)

"The text is interesting and relevant. Other books with a similar layout, do not contain the information about the principles of veterinary nursing, such as the descriptions of Roper, Logan and Tierney’s model of nursing, and Orem’s models of veterinary nursing." (The Veterinary Record, December 2009)
