“This excellent and scientifically detailed book is a much-needed introduction for first year veterinarians.”  (Doody’s, 8 January 2015)

"The book is reasonably priced and will be a good addition to the libraries of both general practitioners and veterinary students. I definitely recommend this book for students or clinicians who desire more knowledge of the anatomy and pathophysiology of the canine nervous system." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 15 June 2016)
