Published Reviews

    "Sometimes, when one has high expectations from such distinguished authors, one is left disappointed, but this book is truly the exception...having enjoyed reading the book from cover to cover, i feel it has a place in every small animal practice library, as each chapter has something applicable to first-opinion practice; it would make an invaluable resource and reference book...the clinical photgraphs, illustratitions and comprehensive text make this book good value for money as, I have no doubt, it will be used and referred to for many years to come."

    Vet Record, April 2012


    "The book is well written, nicely illustrated and professionally edited, largely avoiding fragmentation and/or overlapping that may result from having 47 different authors...this book fills and important void in the veterinary literature, and the attention to detail of its editors has benefitted the reader...I recommend this book for any practicing veterinarian who performs any amount of oral surgery."
