In summary, I highly recommend this textbook and hope itwill find its way onto the bookshelf at every veterinary emergencyhospital. Even those in general practice will find it very usefulwhen that unexpected emergency patient shows up in the lobby (at4:45 pm on a Friday, naturally)! (, 9August 2013) Regardless, the second edition remains an accessible,well-written, and user-friendly text to guide practitioners inmanaging common small animal emergencies in anysetting. (Vet Med Today, 15 December 2013) Overall, the 2nd edition of SAECCM is a verypractical emergency and critical care manual. It will be fillingthe spot in my library where my 1st edition used to sit untilsomeone else also decided it was an excellent book. (Australian Veterinary Journal, 1 March 2013) The book would be useful in practice as a first port ofcall in an emergency situation, particularly for recent graduatesor clinicians facing an unfamiliar case out of hours. (Veterinary Practice, 1 January 2013) "Douglas M. Macintire,'s MANUAL OF SMALL ANIMAL EMERGENCYAND CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE (9780813824734, $89.99) provides thesecond updated edition of a classic vet's desk reference coveringcommon emergencies in small animals.
