Reviews

“There is also an impressive list of references at the end of each chapter should the reader need more details. A great tool for those of us who are serious about their neurology.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 January 2016)

"The third updated edition of Practical Guide to Canine and Feline Neurology appears in full color and is a powerful 'must have' veterinary reference, representing a complete update to a reference on managing neurology cases in small animal practice." (Midwest Book Review 2016)

"I believe this book should be part of every veterinarian’s library. It is an easy reference for readers who need to look something up quickly. The text is written in a manner that is easy to read for veterinary students and veterinarians who are still uncomfortable with neurology, yet it is comprehensive for residents who are studying for board (medical and surgical) certification as well as specialists who are already certified." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 15 June 2016)

The Practical Guide to Canine and Feline
Neurology, though being a textbook with a
target audience of veterinarians, is written
using clear language and medical terminology
that would make it a useful addition
to any veterinary clinic library. 

"The Practical Guide to Canine and Feline Neurology, though being a textbook with a target audience of veterinarians, is written using clear language and medical terminology that would make it a useful addition to any veterinary clinic library." (New Zealand Veterinary Nurse. 2016)
