"Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay the book is to say thatI would recommend it equally to undergraduate students studyingcanine and feline respiratory disease and practitioners wanting toknow and learn a bit more about the subject and glean practicaltips that they can employ in their day-to-day practice."( Veterinary Record, February 2011) "Clinical Canine and Feline Respiratory Medicine isconcisely written, easy to read, and up-to-date. There are manyexcellent photographs illustrating technical procedures anddiagnostic findings. Techniques such as transtracheal wash andchest-tube placement are described in sufficient detail to enablepractitioners to perform these techniques. This textbook takes asensible and functional approach to respiratory medicine andclarifies a subject matter many find confusing. This text is highlyrecommended for any small animal practitioner." (Journal of theAmerican Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010) "The text book is enjoyable to read and fulfils the stated aimof the author, which is to provide an authoritive, cohesive andcomplete discussion of all the elements needed to diagnose andtreat small animal respiratory diseases, specifically in auser-friendly, single author volume, and the author is to becongratulated in doing so." (The Australian VeterinaryJournal, January/February 2011) "General practitioners and vet students receive a reference thatuses a consistent layout and an easy at-a-glance format, along withblack and white and color diagnosis photos. No vet's collectionshould be without this." (The Bookwatch, January 2011) "The well-thought-out design makes the book an effectiveteaching tool and one that will encourage and supportpractitioners, especially the less experienced, in addressingrespiratory disorders in their small animal patients. The characterof this book is best captured by the phrase cut to thechase.' It is masterfully written to present all pertinentinformation with a remarkable economy of words, providing athorough but concise guide to clinical respiratory medicine in thedog and cat."
