Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Karen L Campbell, DVM, MS, DACVIM, DACVD(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This update of a veterinary drug manual includes 35 new drugs approved for use since the publication of the second edition in 2007. In addition to the alphabetical drug monographs, the book has 17 appendixes, and an access code for a web site with over 150 customizable client handouts.
Purpose: As a handbook, the primary goal is to provide busy practitioners and students with the ability to quickly locate information on the clinical use of drugs — including the pharmacology and mechanism of action, indications and clinical uses, precautions, instructions for use, patient monitoring, formulations, stability and storage, doses and regulatory information for each drug. The format is user friendly and provides important information on drug use and safety.
Audience: The primary audience is veterinary practitioners, but the book is also useful to students seeking an easy to use reference on drug use. The author is a recognized expert in the field of veterinary pharmacology.
Features: This book includes information on drugs officially approved for use in animals as well as human medications for which veterinary uses have been identified. Off-label indications and uses are also listed. Regulatory information is provided that will be particularly helpful to veterinarians working with animals intended for food. The primary shortcoming of the book is a lack of references; readers do not know which doses or recommendations are based on prior studies, manufacturer recommendations, or extrapolations from human medicine.
Assessment: Because of the rapidly changing pharmaceutical marketplace, a book such as this one belongs in every veterinary clinic. The purchase of this new edition can be justified by the inclusion of 35 new drugs plus the expanded information on older drugs. This book is not intended as a pharmacology textbook, and additional references are required for veterinarians to fully understand the indications and pharmacology of drugs.

This is really not optimized for use on the Nook. It is hard to get to the drug you want in the body of the text. The find function takes a long time and sometimes does not find the term even when it is in the book. The two tables of drugs at the front are good, but would be twice as useful if every drug listed there was a link to the appropriate page in the text. This is really NOT worth the money as it is configured now.
