This book is a very thorough dialog on veterinary terminology. Be advised that after reading this book you will DEFINITELY be able to determine what your veterinarian is talking about when he doesn't use layman terms (in other words, you will definitely learn a lot from this book). The book itself is not intimidating and it does have some very good ways of learning the information. However, it does get very technical, so you might want to forgo it if you're not up to studying.

I am in my first year in a Veterinary Technician program. Although I also work in an animal hospital, there were still many terms I had never even heard before! This book has an excellent way of breaking down each word--by root word, prefixes, and suffixes. It is such an easy way to learn the terms and comprehend their true meanings. Each chapter has its own self-tests (and answers) to further your understanding of the vocabulary. There is also a section in the back of the book that includes general information of every system in the cat/dog/horse. I loved this section when reviewing for quizzes and exams!

I had waited to buy this book for a while and finally purchased it recently. I'm an 18 year old pre-veterinary medicine major. I found this book amazing!! It not only teaches you the terminology required to understand veterinary medicine but also teaches you anatomy of a wide variety of animals and also is somewhat of a veterinary dictionary because at the end of most chapters there is an exceptionaly good glossary of terms used. It also uses methods such as croosword puzzles and word finds along with other tools to make learning easier! If your a pre-vet major or vet student get this book!! It's a bargain for all you get.

I bought this book for a Veterinary Assistant class which I took because I was working part-time in a veterinarian's office. The book is great.. very thorough and easy to understand. However, it covered a lot of things that the veterinarian I worked for would only do herself. That is, she wouldn't let anybody else assist her in spite of the vast knowledge acquired from this book.

I bought this book (used) for a class I am putting together online to teach Veterinary Vocabulary. It looks well written and laid out. I just got into it so I will report back later. I am already a vet tech with 42 years of experience so I didn't buy it to learn the vernacular but a brush up never hurts either.

This book starts out with providing a solid foundation of terminology. It is organized in a manner that enhances the learning process by incrementally building on previous material. The exercises spaced throughout the book are relevant to the concepts presented. It is an excellent source for learning animal terminology and anatomy.
