"A great tool for the farm vets of today. The regular boxed discussion points, tips and warnings make it easy to read when you need it most. Invaluable when quickly prepping on the way to a farm so I could assess the case with the benefit of knowledge". Journal of the Association of Veterinary Students- September 2018 "A must-have for students and new graduates as well as a refresher for the more experienced practitioner. Overall a good combination of anatomy revision and surgical techniques providing good revision material and a quick reference guide when out in the field". Veterinary Times 2018 "Provides a concise overview to provide readers with a basic understanding of surgical treatment options for various conditions. An easy read, written largely in outline and bulleted formats. Many illustrations help depict various procedures". Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 253, 728 (Sept 15 2018) "Wide range of diagnostic and surgical techniques described in the dot point form with helpful diagrams. Its up to date too, with both Janowitz and Christiansen techniques for laparoscopic correction of an LDA. I reckon anyone who owned this book would be empowered by it to undertake at least one useful procedure they hadn't even heard of". Australian Cattle Practitioner 87, 37 (June 2018) "Text boxes provide a multitude of useful tips and often incorporate animal welfare and ethical implications of the practitioner's decision-making, as well as pain management. A number of high-quality and up-to-date video resources on lameness complement the book on a newly implemented companion website, access through Wiley". Livestock 25 (5), 250 (September/October 2018) "Bovine Surgery and Lameness is an accessible aid for anyone with an interest in cattle practice [...] It's surprising such a concise book can contain such a vast amount of information, but it does [...] it makes for an excellent reference to accompany the foundation knowledge that vet students and new graduates already possess." Vet Record 26 (July 2019)
