"With more than 325 contributors, this book gathers a lot of expertise. (...) Since it is a therapeutic book, it is logically divided into chapters, gathering information on the most common conditions a practitioner can be confronted with. Illustrations are placed at strategic locations to reinforce or explain key points. (...) The book ends with a very complete index to help you navigate this bible for practitioners." - Veterinary Times, July 2009
