"This is a very useful book not only for practitioners but also for undergraduates and academics. It contains up to date information for the most commonly used drugs used in dogs and cats, with very good references that give the reader the opportunity to access to the last published material. It will be good to add Small Animal Clinical Pharmacology to our bookshelf."
