Editorial Reviews

Review

"This edition is a must have for all veterinary practitioners with an interest in veterinary cancer biology, therapy and prognosis. There are significant updates from the previous edition and considerably more information has ben crammed between the covers, with a comprehensive referencing, a selection of excellent colour images and a writing style that is easy to follow.

While this book does contain well presented tabular summaries of specific therapies for specific conditions, what it really chieves is a comprehensive summary of the state of our knowledge at this time and it will enable the real enthusiast to understand the origin of current therapeutic strategies and to assess the evidence base from which these plans are derived." - Gerry Polton, Veterinary Times, August 2007

"From front to back cover it reads as a full story of cancer, what is it, how can you diagnose it, how can you treat it and then a huge number of the most common specific cancers encountered in clinical practice. (...) The book is littered with colour photographs, colour diagrams, x-rays and gross views to show the clinical manifestation of the various diseases, and the FNA section’s pictures are excellent for having next to your labs microscope for quick reference.

The book is very different from the BSAVA Oncology guide, and if you’re expecting that then think again, this book is very much latest information, with the information verified and referenced to thousands of journal articles so you can be sure the information is accurate and also therefore peer reviewed by proxy. With the increase in companion animal cancer it’s a book every practice should have."

Format: Hardcover
I am currently finishing up an advanced clinical rotation in surgical and medical oncology at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. I bought this book as a main resource, along with Fossum's surgery text, Slatter's, and Nelson/Couto's medical text. Withrow's book has been extremely helpful with the background information required to diagnose, treat, and predict the behavior of most tumors. I would recommend this book to anyone specializing in oncology, surgery, internal medicine, or even the general practicioner.

Format: Hardcover
This a great onc resource for any veterinarian- excellent pictures and descriptions. The delivery was speedy. However, the book was supposed to be in brand new condition and was delivered damaged. The front cover looked liked it had been stepped on and was bent back, folded, and scratched.
