Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This book is an essential resource for all who are interested in this rapidly advancing field.  I wore out my copy of the first edition, and I expect to do the same with this wonderfully updated book.  This book belongs in the libraries of all animal shelters as well as those of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary students who have an interest in shelter medicine.”   (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“An excellent tool for the “real” world.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 July 2013)

“The result is a fine guide to animal management, the latest laws, and the newest veterinary practices in a shelter environment: a 'must' for any veterinary reference collection.”  (Midwest Book Review, 1 March 2013)
