Review:

"The book 'gives a very basic rundown of the clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment of a whole range of conditions...all in a compact volume of 783 pages. It provides a very basic veterinary background for the work that nurses are carrying out on a day-to-day basis, giving them a greater understanding of the clinical decision making that goes on behind the cases that they manage." Veterinary Times, July 2008 (Previous Edition)

"This manual provides an overview of the various conditions which can affect all 'companion'  animals ( this includes dogs and cats, exotics, birds, reptiles, horses but also goats and sheep). The diseases are classified by system and each chapter describes  clearly what to look for and what to expect. Easy- peasy then! Numerous "Tech Alert" boxes are used to highlight important tips and there is a review questionnaire at the end of each chapter."
