Reviews

“Although the book is aimed at nurses, veterinary students would certainly benefit from its practical approach.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 January 2016)

Endoscopy for the Veterinary Technician fills an important void in the literature and covers all aspects of  veterinary endoscopy, both flexible and rigid, from the standpoint of veterinary technicians. (JAVMA, 15 March 2016)
