Review quote

"The section on hand rearing small furry pets is wonderful and, as far as I am aware, is not available elsewhere. People should buy this book for this part alone."

Former veterinary advisor for a major pet food manufacturer and former an examiner for the RCVS VN Scheme."light-hearted, easily 'digestible' read.. I am really enjoying it!" "Dot Creighton, Training Officer, Goddard Veterinary Group, London."chapter covering mathematics relating to energy I thought was particularly well covered. The calculations were easy to follow." "Kersty Ellis, VN, Moulton College, Northampton."
