Product description


"Not only will it be of benefit to veterinarians; I foresee itbeing valuable to veterinary students, particularly for revision,and pharmacists who stock veterinary medicines." (VeterinaryRecord, 17 December 2011)

"Sidebars of prescriber highlights accompany in–depth details ina must′ for any vet′s library." (The Midwest Book Review, 1November 2011)

Reviews of the Previous Edition:

"A ′must′ for any college–level veterinary reference holding orfor any practicing vet or student vet: it packs in the latestdetails on veterinary drugs, including detail on monitoring,chemistry, storage, and dosages, and it offers sidebars ofcolor–coded prescribing highlights. The result is an invaluablehandbook that will prove a key, foundation acquisition for anyserious veterinary reference library." (Midwest Book Review,October 2008)

"The 6th edition has several enhancements: a new design andlayout, the addition of 75 new drug monographs, updates to oldermonographs, with a listing for rapid–scanning for potential druginteractions and overdose information for 50 drugs ... and newsections. This edition, as in earlier editions, is essential forveterinarians and for institutions with veterinary medicineprograms." (ARBA Online, March 2009)

"As a veterinary technician, I have enjoyed perusing this bookand find it is not only a great reference for the job but also forhome use, deciphering medication for any one of seven dogs or fivecats currently residing in my home. For this reason, I am betwixtand between as to whether this book should remain in thepets medicine cabinet or go to work to reside on my officebook shelf. Perhaps I need another copy and that is perhaps thebest endorsement of all." (VIN, February 2010)

"This is an essential reference for veterinarians, veterinarytechnicians, pharmacists, other health professionals, andlibraries. ... An invaluable handbook that will be an essentialacquisition for any serious veterinary reference library as well asan easy to use reference for daily practice. This edition providesimportant updates and new features which make it a valuable bookcompared to the previous editions. It remains the pharmacologyresource every veterinarian needs to keep in easyreach." (Doody′s, May 2009)
