Editorial Reviews

Review

"This textbook is an excellent addition to the existing resources available to small animal veterinarians. It is appropriately priced, and I expect it will become an essential resource for experienced emergency room veterinarians, new graduates, and practitioners who occasionally see animals with medical emergencies." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010)

"This book provides pertinent information in an easily accessible, concise format. It could be readily used by anyone who works with emergency and critical care patients." (Doody's, January 2011)

"This book fulfils its aim as an easy-to-access clinical companion, and will readily supply a good summary on any of the emergency presentations discussed in five minutes. As such, it would make a useful addition to the bookshelves of any small animal practice." (Veterinary Record, December 2010)

"Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care adds to Blackwell's 'Five-Minute Veterinary Consult Clinical Companion' series of vet references and is a 'must' for any college-level vet reference collection. It provides a condensed handbook with bullet points, alphabetically organized topics, and keys based on quick clinical consultation. Emergency and critical care information needs to be fast: this book's approach assures in-depth discussions." (Midwest Book Review, November 2010)

"The text is well formatted, making it easy to read, and there are a decent number of colour photos, radiograph images, electrocardiogram strips and tables.... This book will definitely serve as a useful quick reference and support tool, especially for a dedicated out-of-hours service or a general practice that sees a fair number of emergencies." (Veterinary Times, November 2010)

"This illustrated reference will help veterinarians, students, veterinary technicians, and staff at hospitals and emergency clinics diagnose and treat emergency conditions." (Book News, September 2010)

"This book succeeds in its aim to provide readily accessible, up-to-date information covering most emergency conditions, in a format that is quick and easy to consult, once the reader has familiarised him or herself with the general layout." (Veterinary Practice, May 2011)

4.0 out of 5 stars Well laid out, easy to use October 31, 2010
By snbrown
Format:Paperback
Well laid out for quick access to important information. Treatment section is great, with numerous options in a easy to read manner. Only complaint is that there is no mention of diabetic ketoacidosis.

Not very helpful. I find that a lot of common emergencies are not included, like IVDD and vestibular disease, etc.
