    "Not just a textbook, "The Complete Textbook of Veterinary Nursing" is a multimedia study guide using 'PageBurst', an interactive website accessible only by using theunique code printed in each book, it contains 35 videos of key procedures, as well as extensive support materials...Diagrams are clear, easy to understand, are complemented by equations, tables, graphs, and full colour images...All in all this is an essential textbook for all working in the veterinary industry as it offers a straightforward and clear perspective for a modern veterinary practice." Vet Marketing, November 2011 "It focuses on all range of animals, such as dogs, cats and horses. The book covers animal behavior and treatment, handling animals, first aid surgery as wells touching upon the basic subjects as anatomy, breeding, dentistry, analgesia. It is a British learning and reference book for the veterinary nurse, and is therefore of importance in practice for the veterinary staff In almost every veterinary discipline." Dier-an-Art, November 2011 "BRIGHT, appealing and concise! This second edition provides an inviting, fresh approach to the ever-increasing demand for knowledge underpinning veterinary nursing. The chapters are laid out well and many are complemented by bright and excellent quality illustrations...It is pleasing to see a textbook that continues to provide up-to-date information. It is further complemented by the provision of some online chapters, narrated videos and extensive multiple-choice questions. These tools help meet the variety of educational needs of student veterinary nurses in current training, as well providing a reference and updates for registered veterinary nurses and lecturers" Veterinary Record, November 2011 "The book covers the standard veterinary nurse syllabus which means that you will find '"everything you need to know' "in it... The book comes with a website where the reader can find videos showing most practical techniques but also a self-assessment questionnaire (good for revising!) and additional text. In other words: A MUST!" Vet Nurses Today, April 2014
