“This handbook presents a great deal of practical and valuable information in a clear and concise format and will be beneficial for both emergency clinicians and general practitioners who are looking for a quick reference for use in crisis situations. It is reasonably priced, and although it is not intended to be an exhaustive reference, readers will not be disappointed as long as they recognize its intended scope.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2015)

“The second updated edition of Handbook of Canine and Feline Emergency Protocols provides a step-by-step key to managing animal emergencies in small practices, and packs in over 165 complete protocols for triage, as well as stabilizing and handling patients. It's arranged by category of emergency, it provides step-by-step procedures, and it offers clear guidelines and the latest information on imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. Add a lay-flat binding format designed for use with a patient and color illustrations and bibliographic references and you have an important handbook no vet practice should be without.”  (Midwest Book Review, 1 December 2014)

"I would recommend this book to practices that are looking for a list of protocols for emergency treatment. It is not a comprehensive text on treating emergencies (and does not purport to be). For practices that are busy and work well with their nursing teams, I could see this text being very well used to achieve appropriate patient care with a minimum of fuss."(Australian Veterinary Journal , 27 August 2015)
