Review quote

"This reference is useful for veterinary students and general practitioners alike; each subject heading provides diagnostic and treatment information that makes this book a valuable quick reference for use in day-to-day clinical practice." (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2012) "In summary this book certainly merits a place on the shelf in every small animal practice. The prime target audience is clearly the busy general practitioner, but students, veterinary nurses, and even specialists requiring a concise summary of conditions out-side of their area of expertise, will not fail to find items of interest within what is, in all but name, an encyclopaedia of canine and feline disease." (Journal of Small Animal Practice, 17 March 2013) "In summary this book certainly merits a place on the shelf in every small animal practice. The prime target audience is clearly the busy general practitioner, but students, veterinary nurses, and even specialists requiring a concise summary of conditions outside of their area of expertise, will not fail to find items of interest within what is, in all but name, an encyclopaedia of canine and feline disease." (JSAP, 2012) "This is an excellent, thorough yet concise, reader-friendly book. It lends itself to rapid information retrieval, which is important to busy practitioners. This edition is better organized, has more information (more topics), and offers the most up-to-date material available. It should be on every general practitioner's shelf." (Doody's, 2 March 2012) "This book provides relatively new graduates with a useful guide and reference, and more senior colleagues with a refresher and some readily available nuggets of information that could be difficult to find through a literature search ... Whilst this book is written in the USA, it is a useful addition to the bookshelves of UK practices." (Veterinary Practice, 1 February 2012) "In summary, I feel this is a well-designed and thought-out book, with many distinguished contributors. It would be beneficial to any practice to have a copy on the shelf." (Veterinary Record, 17 December 2011) "The text is an important addition to the busy practice. This is one of those books that will stay out on the counter throughout the day. The topics are arranged alphabetically and the table of contents is clean and easy-to-use. If you are ambivalent about updating, It's definitely safe to do so with this book." (Vin Book Reviews, 1 December 2011) Reviews of the Previous Edition: "Bigger and better... The recent edition of the most widely used book in general practice doesn't fail its mission: to provide easy and fast help to the busy practitioner. It will take you more than 5 minutes to read the 13 pages [on anemia]... but you won't miss any option! The appendix also contains lots of useful information such as endocrinology tests and toxic agents with their antidotes. A very complete drug formulary provides practical recommendations, including adverse effects and precautions, or the treatment of dogs and cats." -Vets Today "Blackwell's latest edition of the Five-Minute Veterinary Consult for canine and feline health issues is a stunning volume which consists of 1578 pages of concise information... For veterinary students or authors of veterinary literature, this would be a great reference book to have on the shelf. For practicing veterinarians or clinicians the approach of this text allows for quick access in times of diagnostic dilemmas. Finally, for someone who is teaching in a veterinary technician program this book would be an invaluable resource." -Veterinary Information Network "This book is a one stop shop for anyone who needs an answer fast and the alphabetically ordered format is well suited to this end...As to whether it is a worthwhile investment for any small animal practice I would say definitely yes, and if it is a practice with new or recent graduates then I would argue that it should be a top priority addition to the library." -Journal of Small Animal Practiceshow more
