The photographs and illustrations enhance the text, offering a deeper and more complete understanding of the field of feline dentistry, its pitfalls and successes." (Doddy's, 14 January 2011) "This book is an excellent reference for veterinarians in general practice or feline-exclusive practice and those with a special interest in veterinary dentistry. This is a complete and thorough reference for use in the diagnosis and treatment planning for cats with oral diseases. It should be in the reference library of all small animal veterinarians." (Vet Med Today, 15 June 2010) "This book is an excellent reference for veterinarians in general practice or feline-exclusive practice and those with a special interest in veterinary dentistry. This is a complete and thorough reference for use in the diagnosis and treatment planning for cats with oral diseases. It should be in the reference library of all small animal veterinarians." (Vet Med Today, August 2010) "The images have incredible detail and highlight the most important parts of the text. The images alone are worth the price of the book... The general practitioner looking to improve his or her understanding of the uniqueness of the cat's oral cavity and the pathology that affects it will heavily utilize this book... it should be on the shelf of every veterinarian that practices dentistry, from general practitioner to the board certified dentist." (Journal of Veterinary Dentistry, Spring 2010) "This book is an excellent reference for veterinarians in general practice or feline-exclusive practice and those with a special interest in veterinary dentistry. This is a complete and thorough reference for use in the diagnosis and treatment planning for cats with oral diseases. It should be in the reference library of all small animal veterinarians." (JAVMA, June 2010) "This book is one that the reviewer recommends for students interested in learning dental techniques and practitioners who are looking for a refresher on feline dentistry or a review book for their staff, and most definitely a must have for the technician who is interested in becoming a veterinary dental technician or qualifying for a dental specialty... no-one can afford to be without this text if they are truly interested in learning feline dental techniques from the beginning to the end." (VSPN, April 2010)
