Reviews

“Critique: A standard and very highly recommended textbook for veterinary school and academic library veterinary studies curriculums and reference collections, "Blackwell's Five-Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline" will prove to be an essential, enduringly popular, thoroughly 'user friendly' in content, organization, and presentation, and an immanently practical reference for veterinarians and veterinary clinics.”  (Midwest Book Review, 1 December 2015)

"The book has a companion website, which can be accessed by a password provided at the time of purchase. The best feature of the website is the 354 client education handouts. These handouts are fairly extensive and are generally 3 to 4 pages long. They can be altered prior to printing, which is helpful because not all information provided may be relevant to a particular patient." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2016)

"....I fount it the most comprehensive quick-reference book on canine and feline medicine. A must-have for every companion animal practitioner! Above all for those who prefer a book in their hands instead of an often distraction online research" Katia di Nicolo, DVM (EJCAP 2016)
