"Acid-base could be considered the Marmite of veterinary medicine; you either love it or hate it! This book cannot guarantee to convert you to a fan of acid-base and fluid balance, but it will certainly enlighten you. This is the fourth edition of what many consider to be the definitive work on fluid, electrolytes and acid-base disorders in dogs and cats; it is an invaluable reference book for clinicians...For those in possession of the third edition of the book, this fourth edition, on first presentation, appears remarkably similar. On closer inspection, the addition of more recent references to all chapters offers an added bonus that will cheer individuals with a specific interest in this field of veterinary medicine...This book will offer all practices something! Vet Record, June 2012

"DiBartola's fluid, electrolyte and acid-base disorder in small animal practice has long been a vital resource for the small animal practitioner and the 4th edition affirms is position...this book is a valuable addition to the practitioner's library. It contains useful and accurate information, is generally well written and comprehensively covers a range of issues regarding fluid therapy and small animal medicine...the latest edition provides some additional information and clinical updates over the third edition. These include contemporary therapies such as vasopressin antagonists in conditions such as cardiac and liver failure." Australian Veterinary Journal, July 2012

"Fluid therapy is considered by many to be the major life-saving advance of the last century, and yet the majority of veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses have a very limited understanding of the factors underlying its use....Fluid, Electrolyte and Acid-Base Disorders in Small Animal Practice has, for many years, been the gold standard textbook used to explain these concepts...the book provides a huge amount of in-depth information and will remain 'the bible' of textbooks on fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders for small animal practice...For those who do not have access to one of the older editions and have more than a passing interest in fluid therapy, there is certainly sufficient information contained in this 4th edition to justify its purchase." Journal of Small Animal Practice, January 2013
