Review quote

This new textbook addresses clinical pharmacology in a useable and informative manner. It is a practical text that will appeal to both veterinary students and small animal practitioners. This book contains excellent information that will help clinicians adopt a rational approach to treatment strategies in their small animal patients. It offers good value for money and should be a great asset to any clinician wanting a better understanding of the drugs they prescribe as well as providing a useful and quick reference text on clinical pharmacology for the veterinary practice library. Severine Tasker, European Society of Feline Medicine, Winter 2008 "This is a very useful book not only for practitioners but also for undergraduates and academics. It contains up to date information for the most commonly used drugs used in dogs and cats, with very good references that give the reader the opportunity to access to the last published material. It will be good to add Small Animal Clinical Pharmacology to our bookshelf." "The Veterinary Journal, 182 (2009)"
