Review quote

"This textbook offers a definitive resource for veterinary care of camelids. It is obvious that the text has been expanded to include more information about camels and updated to include current literature, color images, and new treatments. The price is appropriate, and the book is well worth the price for the amount of information provided and the overall quality of the text." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010)
