Review quote

-You'll find all you need to master to work with animals, from capture and restraint of swine to calculation of RBC indices. This is really a very thorough work. Recommended readings are listed at the end of the chapters and eye catching 'technician notes' help the reader focus on key points.- Vet Nurses Today, April 2014show more
