About this book

Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Ninth Edition is the long awaited update of the gold-standard reference on "Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics". The field of veterinary pharmacology continues to evolve and expand and this new edition has been revised to reflect changes in the field. Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Ninth Edition is thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded to meet the needs of today's veterinarians, veterinary students, and animal health researchers.

The ninth edition of 'Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics' is substantially revised and updated from the previous edition and proves to be a worthy reference for its intended primary audience of veterinary medical students, interns, and residents as well as for anyone interested in comparative pharmacology... an important reference in any veterinary hospital library.
- Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, September 2009

"This latest edition may have the most extensive revisions yet. Directed toward veterinary students, interns, residents, as well as those in comparative biomedical sciences, laboratory studies, and researchers, the book should also be in the library of the practicing veterinarian."
