"this textbook, written by devoted specialists, is an excellent way to learn how to approach cancer patients using all aspects of modern medicine, from purely medical to psychological, moral and socio-ethical. (...) The approach to tumours reflects the experience of the authors; even a beginner is safely guided through clinical signs, clinical evaluation, diagnostic work-up, staging, prognostic evaluation and treatment. (...) The text is equally understandable and guiding for a student with a special interest in oncology and useful for an experienced clinician.
The book was an enjoyable read. It is strongly recommended as an excellent source of up-to-date information for enthusiastic students, general clinicians as well as for those devoted specifically to veterinary oncology." - Professor Janos Butinar, DVM, Ms, PhD; European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, October 2009
