Reviews

"The text is well organized and thorough, provides excellent academic knowledge, and covers topics that are most likely to be encountered by a veterinary technician employed. The text involves a depth of knowledge that I believe would be well understood by students. In addition, the book complements the narrative of each chapter with pictorials that students will find to be extremely beneficial." (Vet Med Today, 15 June 2010) The one thing I really like about this text is the sample forms (eg, dental charts, general procedure forms, and client-consent forms) designed specifically for equine patients. This text has great potential for being incorporated into a veterinary technology curriculum." ( Vet Med Today , August 2010) "The text is well organized and thorough, provides excellent academic knowledge, and covers topics that are most likely to be encountered by a veterinary technician employed in equine medicine... the authors did an extremely good job of providing the elements in a complete and compact package for students interested in this topic. The one thing I really like about this text is the sample forms (eg, dental charts, general procedure forms, and client-consent forms) designed specifically for equine patients. This text has great potential for being incorporated into a veterinary technology curriculum." ( JAVMA, June 2010) "This is a complete and thorough manual for a very specific audience and the quality of the information is first rate." ( Doody's , May 2010)
