Table of Contents
I would definitely suggest this book to breeders, students and newly qualified vets , and I think it should be reserved a spot on all veterinary practice bookshelves. ( Veterinary Record , 16 February 2013) Each chapter is backed up by references and the part on small mammals and exotics can prove extremely useful in practice. ( Vet Nurses Today , 1November 2012) This is a particularly useful book, crammed full of information which practitioners should definitely have within arms' reach, and which I will be adding to our practice's bookshelf.
