Review quote

"The first section, of over 1100 pages, would make a textbook in itself and is entitled 'Diseases and Disorders'.provided and excellent and thorough overview of the subject, considering aetiology, diagnosis, differentials, therapy and prognosis along with what the authors term 'Pearls and Considerations'. The website .reproduces all of the printed text and some which is not present in the printed version. The major benefits of this website are downloadable Client Information Sheets (in English and Spanish) and the ability to reproduce the 'Procedures and Techniques' illustrations. The book does not claim to be an exhaustive stuffy of any particular condition. It does however, in my opinion, provide more than just the basic information. Students could find it useful but its main application would seem to be the recent graduate or to those returning to the profession after a career-break, even if only to enable them to verify those decisions already taken during consultations. It does appear to merit a place in the typical practice library.? Reviewed by Freddie J. Marshall BVMS MRCVS (UK), for EJCAP, vol 17, October 2007 "(...) The coverage of toxicities was outstanding for a general veterinary text. (...) Both common and SI units are referenced both in the laboratory section and throughout the general text. (...) It is possible to access the textbook online, which also provides a rapid text searching facility and access to information sheets on more than 100 topics. So, would I recommend this book? I think it would prove extremely useful to have a copy in the practice library. It may not go into as much detail as more specialised texts, but I think it has done a very good job of conveying salient points in a useable format and covers a wide range of topics to a satisfactory depth. In addition, it does all this for an extremely reasonable price, giving real value for money." --- Veterinary Times, October 22nd, 2007

"The Clinical Veterinary Advisor: Dogs and Cats, edited by Dr Etienne Cote, gets it just right. The template-based text is arguably the most comprehensive of its kind, containing high-quality information from over 300 contributing authors and 21 editors. The bulk of the book is dedicated to diseases and disorders... This impressive tome is the ultimate general resource for small animal practitioners and represents exceptional value for money. If you're a new graduate and can only afford to buy one textbook, The Clinical Veterinary Advisor: Dogs and Cats should be on your shortlist."Journal of Small Animal Practice, July 2010
