Index.

“While there is room for more information in future editions, this text provides a solid foundation as the first of its kind to be published in the United States and will become a much-referenced text for years to come.”  (Herbal Gram, 1 May 2012)

"Xie’s Chinese Veterinary Herbology provides a succinct and appropriate resource for veterinarians in small animal or equine practice who have an interest in expanding the services they offer to clients. The author’s extensive background in teaching students at all levels allows him to guide readers and provide a rapid understanding of the process of diagnosis and a comfortable level for prescription of Chinese veterinary herbal formulas. This book will become an invaluable addition to the library of every growing veterinary practice in the United States. I encourage even beginning-level students of TCVM to seriously contemplate investing in this reasonably priced and expansive text, which I predict will quickly become the modern Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook of TCVM herbs in the veterinary world." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010)

"This volume is an excellent reference for practicing veterinarians, and a good text for continuing education courses in traditional Chinese veterinary medicine." (Book News, September 2010)

 
"This is a concise yet practical and comprehensive reference for veterinarians familiar with and trained in traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM) who want to use or integrate Chinese veterinary herbology into their veterinary practice. Excellent background information, descriptions, diagrams, illustrations, and examples make this a useful addition to the library of any veterinarian interested in or trained in TCVM." (Doody's Reviews,  2010)
