"There is no doubt that some of the information was in far greater detail than I would ever need, but the text does give plenty of useful basic information as well as being an excellent reference source for those requiring more detail. Overall this is a specialist text, it will make a useful addition to the practice reference library, for both basic fracture treatments and when dealing with more complex cases."

"I found ‘Bovine Orthopaedics’ a thought-provoking read and think it would be stimulating for both small animal orthopaedic surgeons and general farm animal vets as extra interest. However, I don’t think many of the techniques described are applicable to day-to-day farm animal practice. Although it is inspiring to read about the possibilities and techniques for bovines currently in development (many require more research or practice, as often indicated by the poor success rates or small amount of data available), they have little place in current farm animal veterinary practice."
