Editorial Reviews

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 

“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. 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, cliniopathologic testing, imaging studies, and routine anesthetic, dental, and surgical procedures is covered in significant detail with excellent illustrations where helpful. 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.” - Doody's Book Reviews, November 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

From The Critics
Reviewer: Kent Davis, DVM, B.S.(University of Illinois Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital)
Description: This is a reference text for veterinary technicians in a clinical setting. It has 12 chapters with color plates and 642 pages. The reference charts, diagrams and illustrations make it easy to navigate.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the veterinary technician with an easy reference manual for the everyday procedures encountered by a veterinary nurse in a clinical practice. The authors have met this objective extremely well.
Audience: This book is intended for veterinary technicians in a clinical setting. The authors are credible and the material covered is relevant.
Features: Every possible procedure, test, drug, and situation is referenced in a concise, easy-to-understand format. The color plates are particularly helpful. The chart format of many of the procedures and diagnostics is particularly easy to reference. The layout and text is presented in a very professional manner.
Assessment: I would definitely recommend this reference to veterinary technician students and those in a clinical setting. It can be an adjunct to the veterinary technician curricula and useful to the practicing veterinarian as well. The authors have presented the material in a direct and understandable format.

    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.
