About Michael Schaer
College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Florida, USA
"...the pictures are excellent...a high quality reference book. This is a very good book that fills a gap in the small animal medicine textbook market. As a reference tool, it is excellent when used to back up clinical suspicions you may have in general practice, or alongside other textbooks, and would make an excellent addition to any practice library...I recommend this book to people with a strong interest in medicine and with a memory that works better with imagery rather than block text." -Nick Williams, Veterinary Times, June 2009 "...an attractive, concise text, packed full of high quality, eye-catching photographs spanning the day-to-day conditions encountered by clinicians, along with some of the more unusual ones...amusing and accurate key points to bear in mind when considering a bracket of conditions, a feature that I found extremely useful to help avoid an embarrassing oversight, or highlight common concerns that may be easily forgotten in the pressured environment of a busy clinic...quick notes provide succinct and useful reminders of lessons past, simplifying the task of wading through pages of descriptive text in the larger volumes on internal medicine by narrowing down the list of differentials and focusing the train of thought...refreshing and memorable...fits the bill perfectly as a quick reference guide to point the floundering new graduate or the jaded practitioner in the right direction for a diagnosis." -Jennie McMullan, Veterinary Record, December 2012
