“This thorough yet accessible volume will likely find a prominent place on the shelves of many general practitioners who care primarily for small animals. Its format is well suited to quick look-ups, providing in-depth information that is both concise and incisive.” - Compendium, May 2009

“The best features of the book are numerous illustrations from anatomic sketches to MR imagines and EEG tracings. The color anatomy atlas of the canine brain with glossary in the back of the book is also a welcome addition. A valuable addition to the field of small animal veterinary medicine.” - Doody's Reviews, April 2009
