Review quote

"Overall, this is a nice book to have as a reference. It is updated and has better images than the previous version, and the color-coded pages are helpful when using it as a quick reference. It includes a great deal of information that sometimes is a detriment to "quickness."-Brittany Perry, BS, DVM(University of Illinois Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital) Doody Review: 83/100
