Student perspective, July 29, 2000

This book is an excellent companion for student and practitioner alike (although it is probably a little specialised for pet owners with no medical grounding ) . It is written in concise form , and has an excellent layout for easy reference . One of its real strengths is its use of pictures , which really illustrate written points beautifully . The sections at the back also have tables and technique descriptions for those moments when rapid descisive answers are needed . In short , a superbly written book that people have obviously put a lot of thought into . I am sure it will be a career long collegue for anyone who purchases it !
