"This is certainly not a pocket book - it is a very substantial text for use as a quick reference guide, which is reflected in the format. There is something in it for everyone with an interest in ruminant medicine, regardless of their experience level.... Despite its size, the layout of this book is simple and has a simple format. It fulfills the aims set out in the preface and offers good value by including a CD." (Veterinary Times, September 2010)

"Fans of the series no doubt appreciate the easy to use, no-frills approach to veterinary textbooks, providing the relevant basic information for the vet or student on the go (or past the deadline)." (Veterinary Practice, December 2009)

"The Five-Minute Veterinary Consult has strength in breadth and is extremely easy to navigate. If you need to remind yourself of the basics of an unfamiliar or long-forgotten topic, and you have only five minutes, you may find that this book is a worthy addition to the shelf or car boot." (The Veterinary Record, December 2009)

"An excellent quick-reference resource for any veterinarian who treats cattle, sheep, goats, cervids, or camelids... provides a practical overview of the most important diseases and production problems in these species. This textbook is intended as a go-to reference when review of a particular topic is required; it is not intended to replace more detailed internal medicine or production medicine references. However, the inclusion of management and husbandry topics makes this one of the most comprehensive textbooks available to ruminant practitioners." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, September 2009)

"This valuable book is a compilation of necessary and welcome information. The editor and authors have met their objectives in an exemplary manner." (Doody’s Book Reviews, September 2009)

"Every vet library must have this." (Midwest Book Review, July 2009)
