"The authors have skillfully achieved their goal of producing a quick reference that is intermediate in level of detail between Blackwell's Five-Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline and in-depth endocrinology/theriogenology books, expanding on important points without losing the brevity and accessibility of information that makes this book very useful for the busy practitioner. The treatment of small animal reproductive medicine is particularly valuable." (Doody Enterprises July 2017)
