“Overall, I found this book to be a useful clinical handbook well worth the price. It is recommended as a practical clinical reference for small animal practitioners with limited experience in the area of infectious disease or veterinary students interested in learning clinical information necessary to effectively treat dogs and cats with common infectious diseases.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 December 2015)

“A very useful tool to enrich whatever formulary may be lying in the consulting room.”  (Vet Nurses Today, 1 October 2015)

""This book is quite unique in its systematic and logic structure and is a welcome addendum to current literature in this topic."" (EJCAP 2016)

""From diagnosis and dosages to risk factors and resources for further reading in professional veterinary publications, all the guidelines and details are written with clinical settings in mind, making this a top office pick."" (Midwest Book Review 2016)
