Media reviews

"Even though I have been practicing for several years, I found tips on diagnostics that I could immediately use at my practice. This book will make a nice addition to shelves, both for those who see birds infrequently and on a daily basis. It will be used often for drug dosages and disease rule-outs that you don't want to flip through larger textbooks to obtain. Many good facts are in a single location and can be easily accessed between appointments."
Exotic DVM Magazine

"Any veterinary student or general practitioner with an interest in avian medicine should place this book at the top of their shopping list."
