About this book

First book on how to practice evidence based veterinary medicine. Explains how to identify quality clinical information and interpret it correctly. Uses a problem-based approach working back from the disease that the veterinarian is faced with.

It addresses an emerging topic, which has 'been around' in human medicine for several years. The topic has yet to be taken up widely in veterinary medicine. "I would suspect that most US veterinary school libraries would purchase a copy as well as the obvious UK market." Mike Thrusfield, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Medicine, Edinburgh. "An overview of this topic is timely, especially as it is forming part of the undergraduate curriculum." John Innes, Orthopaedic Specialist, University of Bristol. "An interesting and understandable presentation introducing the relatively novel concept of EBVM." Lab Animal News (US)
