The Sixth Edition of this bestselling handbook includes over 70 new drug monographs, as well as updated dosages and information for older monographs. A separate section on topical medications has been added, and sections on ophthalmic drugs and small animal therapeutic diets have been updated. Completely new to the Sixth Edition is a two-color format and new monograph layout, which enables faster access to much-needed information. The Sixth Edition features new overdose information from the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center on 50 of the drugs most commonly associated with animal overdoses, and a new appendix on overdose decontamination.

Plumb’s Veterinary Drug Handbook is available in an 8 ½ x 11-inch desk size for enhanced readability and ease of use, as well as the convenient pocket size and electronic formats. Plumb’s one-volume coverage of drugs approved for veterinary species and non-approved (human) drugs that are used in veterinary practices today make this book an essential reference for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary pharmacologists, pharmacists with veterinary patients, animal research or zoological facilities, and libraries that serve these groups.

Review:

“This is an essential reference for veterinarians, veteirnary technicians, pharmacists, other health professionals, and libraries... an invaluable handbook that will be an essential acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library as well as an easy to use reference for daily practice. This edition provides important updates and new features which make it a valuable book compared to the previous editions. It remains the pharmacology resource every veterinarian needs to keep in easy reach.” - Doody's Reviews, May 2009

[Reviews of Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook, Sixth Edition: Desk Edition]

“A 'must' for any college-level veterinary reference holding or for any practicing vet or student vet: it packs in the latest details on veterinary drugs, including detail on monitoring, chemistry, storage, and dosages, and it offers sidebars of color-coded prescribing highlights. The result is an invaluable handbook that will prove a key, foundation acquisition for any serious veterinary reference library.” - Midwest Book Review, October 2008

“The 6th edition has several enhacements: a new design and layout, the addition of 75 new drug monographs, updates to older monographs, with a listing for rapid-scanning for potential drug interactions and overdose information for 50 drugs... and new sections. This edition, as in earlier editions, is essential for veterinarians and for institutions with veterinary medicine programs.” - ARBA Online, March 2009
