Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent new reference guide that will be beneficial to students and general practitioners alike. The book is set out in a logical manner with emphasis on increasing diagnostic ability, whilst recognising limitations of general practise. The author has included very practical tables... Comprehensive reference lists from authors at the top of their field show how well this book has been researched and why it will remain a firm favourite for years to come." Vetinary Times Vol 36 No 9.

Format: Hardcover
This book was unbelievably disappointing. First of all many of the images are blurry. Images of normal animals just have a caption of normal animal--it does not point out any anatomical structures. When there is an abnormal animal, very rarely is the problem pointed out. It is just described in the caption. Secondly-the layout of this book is more like a journal than a text. There are areas where the author uses the first person, and just talks about cases he's seen. It doesn't seem like much research went into this book. There are no references anywhere. The author randomly talks about cases he's seen. Back to images--a lot of space is taken up by photos of vet student holding animals and other irrelevant matter. I was excited when I read the publishers description that animals such as bison, caiman and snakes would be covered. The bison chapter just shows a photo of one in a squeeze chute and a radiograph of a magnet. The caiman chapter has only one case. The snake chapter just shows a 2-headed snake, a king snake with a spinal abnormality and some jaws. The chapters on birds and rabbits have a lot more images, but again nothing is pointed out, they are of poor quality and seem very random. I rarely return books-but this one I just had to. I was disgusted to see it on my desk.

This is the only veterinary text that I have ever returned. The book is light on substance and contains little detailed or useful information. Radiographs used are of poor quality and little detail of normal radiographic anatomy is included. The exotic pets and wildlife component of the text is limited to a ragtag collection of cases seen by the author with the accompanying images and text providing little useful information. There are far better radiographic texts available than this particular book.
