"With coverage ranging from basic maintenance such as restraint and catheterization to more complex procedures such as minimally invasive surgery, Veterinary Techniques for Llamas and Alpacasdescribes the full range of techniques required for the medical management of these species." (Quest, 21 April 2014) "This is a very valuable addition to the library of mixed-animal practitioners. The range of topics, along with the simplicity of the text and the thoroughness of the visual aids, will enable veterinarians, inexperienced or seasoned, to provide a better standard of care to camelids with more confidence." (Doody's, 16 September 2013) "The format lends to at-a-glance reference or full study while the discussions provide keys for vets and any staff members dealing with llamas and alpacas. Highly recommended for any veterinary reference collection, and for vets working with large animals." (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 August 2013)
