Overview

This Third Edition is intended as a rapid reference to complement in-depth references in pharmacology, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. More than 370 drug monographs are featured.

Individual monographs include information on:

  • Chemical characteristics
  • Storage, stability, and physical compatibility
  • Pharmacology
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Uses and indications
  • Contraindications, precautions, and reproductive safety
  • Adverse effects and warnings, overdosage, and drug interactions
  • Dosages by species and indication (fully referenced)
  • And more...

An appendix supplies additional information on:

  • Abbreviations used in prescription writing
  • Solubility definitions
  • Conversion tables; millequivalents and molecular weights
  • "Normal" vital signs
  • Estrus and gestation periods for dogs and cats
  • Laboratory values
  • And more...

INDEXES by trade and generic names and drugs by use/indication complete this quick, thorough reference.

NEW TO THE 3RD EDITION ARE:

  • Revised and updated information
  • More than 25 new drug monographs
  • Information on prescription diets for dogs and cats.
  • An additional index of drugs by use/indication.

The book contains no figures.

Contains essential information that veterinary practitioners and students need to know about hundreds of systemic drugs, both those approved for veterinary use and "human" drugs routinely used. This book comes in two sizes - a desk and pocket size. Although the page counts and sizes are different, they both contain exactly the same information. An Abridged Comapnion is also available, which does not include chemistry, storage/stability/compatibility, pharmacology, pharmacokenetics, over dosage, or drug interaction information (as do the desk and pocket editions).

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ted Whittem, BVSc, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This third edition is a revision of the second, which was published in 1995. It is similarly laid out but includes additional appendixes, drug monographs, and a new index by drug classification.
Purpose: The editor sets out to provide a comprehensive reference of clinical veterinary drugs with this new edition, and he achieves this aim.
Audience: Students, residence, practitioners, and veterinary college faculty will all find use for this revision.
Features: Exhaustive lists of drugs used in veterinary primary and referral practice are provided, including their mechanisms of action, toxicity, clinical indications, and doses. In addition, information that can be difficult to find elsewhere is included, such as a drug's chemical properties and its pharmacokinetics in different species. The new index of drug classifications or indications is helpful. Unfortunately, dosing recommendations for food animals are not noted as being labeled or off-label recommendations. The doses, which are off-label, are not accompanied by an indication or warning that the stated withholding times are no longer appropriate.
Assessment: Despite this drawback, this is a good book, with no comparable competitor. Owners of the first edition would benefit markedly from this new edition. Owners of the second edition would also benefit from the new monographs, especially those of ophthalmological preparations and neoplasia protocols.

New edition of a handbook originally published in 1991. It provides references to drugs as well as information on drugs approved for use in veterinary species as well as those non-approved drugs that are routinely used in veterinary practices. This edition adds a new appendix on small animal therapeutic diets, an additional 27 drug monographs, an update of the older monographs, and a new appendix that lists drugs by their classification options available for a given condition and species.
