You can carry this little book in your pocket for easy reference, and it is loaded with important info.

This is the kind of book that you can hide in your scrubs pocket and duck into an exam room to read really quickly without the vets seeing you looking something up.

I am also a teacher of Veterinary Technology and this is a great book for a student who is just starting out in this field after graduation.

After reading good reviews, I asked for and received this book as a birthday present late last year. As I flipped through the first section (Pharmacology), however, I noticed some glaring mistakes and omissions which have made me doubt the veracity of the info throughout the whole book.

Some mistakes: dexamethazone is listed as 'long acting' IM, IV, SC, PO, while Depo-Medrol is listed as intermediate acting (along with prednisone); pimobendan listed as 'available in Canada and Europe'--t's been available in this country for quite a few years, and this is the 2009 edition I'm reviewing; benazepril is listed as an "Angiotensin Converting Enzyme" (!) rather than an ACE-inhibitor, while enalapril is listed as an ACE-I all by itself; enalapril is listed as 'give on an empty stomach'; Pepto-Bismol carries no warning not to use in cats; and the most egregious mistake is listing methylene blue as a reversal agent for Valium! Yep, it's listed in the 'antidotes and reversing agents' section, and of course doesn't carry a warning about how it kills cats. There is no mention of flumazenil so I don't know what was supposed to be listed as a reversal for benzodiazepines. The methylene blue is probably in there as an antidote for acetominophen toxicity though it has largely been supplanted by n-acetylcysteine b/c of safety issues.

Some omissions: imipenem/meropenem from antibiotics; fentanyl from opioids; atenolol and sotalol not listed as beta-blockers (these are the two most commonly used in cats & dogs); mexiletine and sotalol from anti-arrhythmics (the two most common used PO in dogs); fenbendazole is now an accepted treatment for Giardia (not listed as such); hydrochlorathiazide from diuretics; maropitant from anti-emetics; xylazine from emetics.

As an assistant studying to become a technician, I find the PDQ to be an invaluable tool.Whether you are just starting out as a tech, or have been one for a while now, you owe it to yourself and your patients to check this one out!!! Dr. Margi knew excatly what we needed and did a great job putting this one together. 2 thumbs up!!!

Since I purchased this little pocket book I have found it invaluable. Not only for me but I've purchased another 4 of these books for fellow Veterinary Nurses. It is great for study or just for day to day references. Whether you're a seasoned veterinary professional or just starting out, this little pocket book is for you!

This tiny little book is packed with information that a Vet Tech uses on a regular basis, as well as some that's a bit more obscure. All of it is pertinent to the job though. I'm glad I found it!

I'm in school studying to be a vet tech and this book is a life saver, especially when I need a quick reference when running a fecal sample. The PDQ has tabs out to the side so you can find exactly what you're looking for quickly. It also is packed with useful information that I use just about every day.
