Reviews

“An ideal book to browse through but also an excellent revision tool for students or a good guide for in-house CPD.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 January 2016)

"Each chapter opens with a highlight of key points and offers references, charts, statistics, and supporting information to answer all kinds of issues involved in administering small animal anesthesia." (California Bookwatch, 2016)

"Overall, this is an easy-to-read, logically organized veterinary anesthesia reference that is appropriate for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians who are responsible for anesthetizing veterinary patients." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2016)

"This is an excellent text for veterinary nursing students or those who have been out of the profession for a while and want to refresh and increase their anaesthetic knowledge. I would encourage learning providers to invest in a copy for their student library if they do not already own one." (New Zealand Veterinary Nurse, 2016)
