Published Reviews

    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.'
