Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive reference and clinical skills guide for veterinary technicians involved in the care of dogs and cats. Presented in a practical ring binding which opens flat to sit well on a work counter or desk, the text is formatted almost exclusively as tables and charts and thoroughly indexed to facilitate quick retrieval of information.
Purpose: The authors' goals of providing a comprehensive yet practical and easily accessed resource for veterinary technicians and of encouraging professional growth by providing in-depth content are well met by this exhaustive and cleverly formatted reference.
Audience: This guide is designed to meet the needs of trained veterinary technicians in clinical practice but is also a valuable resource for general practitioners and a good review tool for veterinary and veterinary technician students. The authors have incorporated input from many other veterinary professionals to augment their own expertise in the production of this impressive publication.
Features: This is a masterful compilation of an overwhelming breadth and depth of information made practical and accessible through an efficient table and chart format and extensive indexing. Every conceivable aspect of patient examination, nursing care, clinicopathologic testing, imaging studies, and routine anesthetic, dental, and surgical procedures is covered in significant detail with excellent illustrations where helpful. It incorporates a color atlas of common parasites, cytology and urinalysis findings, and color plates demonstrating general anatomy, with additional black-and-white images of anatomy, instruments, bandaging, and dental charting/radiographic positioning. Techniques for general and targeted (orthopedic, cardiac, neurologic, etc.) physical examination and diagnostic procedures are described in stepwise fashion and radiographic positioning is covered in detail. Chapters on general and emergency medicine summarize pertinent disease conditions by organ system and sections covering anesthesia, surgery, and dentistry are well organized and useful. A formulary of traditional and complementary medications and a glossary of medical terms conclude the book.
Assessment: This is a truly commendable work with vast amounts of pertinent information presented in an effective and user friendly format. It surpasses other similar books in its breadth of coverage and superb organization.
From the Publisher
“An impressive quick reference source for busy practicing veterinary technicians. Although it is designed primarily for experienced veterinary technicians, students enrolled in veterinary technology programs should find this book to be a useful supplement.... there are numerous excellent tables, charts, and Skill Box sections that provide pertinent how-to-do information and descriptions of procedures that may be needed by a veterinary technician to complete tasks more efficiently and correctly.  The Skill Box sections throughout the chapters are especially useful for providing guidance to technicians in answering client questions or for helping to solve technical problems... all subjects are covered in a that is easy to reference, read, comprehend, and apply to practical use. Veterinary technicians should find this book to be an indispensable reference resource. For this reason, it should be kept in an easily accessible area of the veterinary clinica for ready use by veterinary professionals throughout the workday.” - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2008

"An in-depth reference for veterinary technicians in practice or training. Spiral-bound to lay flat for easy reference, [it] covers all aspects of a technician's responsibility while looking after dogs and cats, from simple physical examination to specific nursing and technical procedures.... Almost 200 images illustrate this solid resource, assembled by two experts.... A 'must have' for anyone seriously pursuing or engaged in the field of veterinary medicine for dogs and cats." - Midwest Book Review, September 2008

    Every technician must have this book

    I bought this book at the Western Vet Conference, and have been amazed at how often I refer to it. Even our doctors have used it. If you are a tech, liscensed or not, this is a must for your library.
