Review quote

... The aim of the authors has been admirably achieved. The textbook is already acknowledged as an essential resource for students, teachers and for veterinary practitioners and horse lovers in the English-speaking world.
-JAVMA

A valuable reference for students of anatomy and surgery. The practicing surgeon should find many of the descriptions and diagrams extremely
useful.
-The Irish Veterinary Journal
