Review quote

"This book will enable VNs to become more involved in clinics and will ensure their skills are utilised. Certainly a book for every VN to have in the library." (BSAVA, 1 March 2014) "To summarise, The Consulting Veterinary Nurse will be a useful book for many nurses, especially those who have a keen interest in clinical nutrition, and those looking to promote nutrition within the practice ... It may also offer some suggestions for medical clinics that may not have otherwise been considered." (The Veterinary Record, 1 October 2013) "From handling senior pet clinics to client compliance and education, this covers clinics organized for a range of animal conditions and is written by an experienced senior vet nurse. Any veterinary collection will find this filled with specifics." (Bookwatch, 1 January 2013) "The Consulting Veterinary Nurse' is a highly informative, well-written book and deserves its place in the practice library or, better still, the nurses' consultation room." (Veterinary Record, 2 February 2013)
