"I definitely recommend this book to those who have an interest in anesthesia and pathogenic conditions associated with it." ( Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association , March 2010) "This book is a great reference and training resource, covering all areas in moderate detail, and overall is a useful little book. It would be equally at home on the shelf of an experienced VN seeking to gain advanced qualifications, as that of the student nurse or veterinary undergraduate." ( Veterinary Record, May 2010)
