Reviews

“Overall, this book provides a fulfilling overview of the physiology knowledge required for veterinary students during their time at university and in their future career.  I like the fact that it is easy to use and feel that the self-evaluation sections will be particularly welcome for veterinary students.”  (Veterinary Record, 1 December 2015)

“It is certainly a textbook worth consideration for undergraduate or professional physiology courses and those interested in the comparative aspects of physiology.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 September 2015)
