"Even though I have been practicing for several years, I found tips on diagnostics that I could immediately use at my practice. This book will make a nice addition to shelves, both for those who see birds infrequently and on a daily basis. It will be used often for drug dosages and disease rule-outs that you don't want to flip through larger textbooks to obtain. Many good facts are in a single location and can be easily accessed between appointments." - Exotic DVM Magazine

"Any veterinary student or general practitioner with an interest in avian medicine should place this book at the top of their shopping list."
