    Review quote
    "The explosive growth of pharmacologic information in recent decades has resulted in vast amounts of complex information that is often difficult for busy clinicians to assimilate and prioritize. The Handbook of Veterinary Pharmacology offers a solution to this quandary by providing a concise reference for veterinary students and practitioners. I would recommend it for veterinary students as an excellent source of review material and for practitioners as a good starting point for questions regarding specific treatments." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, March 2009) "Any vet school or practicing vet needs Handbook of Veterinary Pharmacology: it's a guide to pharmacology concepts and commonly used veterinary drugs and provides an easy outline format to allow for quick access to drug information. Easy line drawings showing the mechanisms of action and study questions are included at the end of each chapter, with details on drug dosages, drug therapy for different domestic species, and clear diagrams. Perfect for students and practicing vets seeking a quick reference." (Midwest Book Review, January 2009) "This handbook for veterinary pharmacology has been designed as a quick reference in the field for practical drug information, including data on drug interactions and legal considerations. Hsu (Iowa State U. College of Veterinary Medicine) has arranged this reference to emphasize the most commonly used drugs to treat animals, and includes plenty of diagrams and illustrations to explain the chemical mechanisms behind each medication. Study questions have been provided at the end of each chapter, which will enable this book to be used in the classroom as well." (SciTech Book News, December 2008)
