This is an excellent, thorough yet concise, reader-friendly book. It lends itself to rapid information retrieval, which is important to busy practitioners. This edition is better organized, has more information (more topics), and offers the most up-to-date material available. It should be on every general practitioner's shelf.
- Doody's, 2 March 2012

"This book provides relatively new graduates with a useful guide and reference, and more senior colleagues with a refresher and some readily available nuggets of information that could be difficult to find through a literature search ... Whilst this book is written in the USA, it is a useful addition to the bookshelves of UK practices."
- Veterinary Practice, 1 February 2012

"In summary, I feel this is a well-designed and thought-out book, with many distinguished contributors. It would be beneficial to any practice to have a copy on the shelf."
- Veterinary Record, 17 December 2011

"The text is an important addition to the busy practice. This is one of those books that will stay out on the counter throughout the day. The topics are arranged alphabetically and the table of contents is clean and easy-to-use. If you are ambivalent about updating, It's definitely safe to do so with this book."
