Editorial Reviews


“I would recommend this book for nurses and technicians studying towards a Diploma in Advanced Nursing or a Veterinary Nursing degree but also to those qualified nurses working in practice as a great reference book. I enjoyed the secret login for the website and the multiple choice questions (MCQs) are a great study aid.” (The Veterinary Journal, 1 October 2013)

“This textbook is an excellent addition to the library of any veterinary hospital, especially a speciality practice or academic institution.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

"Overall, this is an extremely useful textbook for nurses of any experience and ability. It is something that can be kept handy during the working day, both for in-depth study of unfamiliar diagnoses or as a general reference for more common disorders of a body system.” (Australian Veterinary Journal, 6 June 2013)

“No veterinary reference holding should be without this detailed guide!.” (Midwest Book Review, 1 March 2013)

“It is superb value for money and should be a welcome addition to any personal or practice library.” (Veterinary Practice News, 1 March 2013)

"Linda Merrill's SMALL ANIMAL INTERNAL MEDICINE FOR VETERINARY TECHNICIANS AND NURSES (9780813821641, $79.99) deserves ongoing recommendation as a basic reference - the first written - for the veterinary technician. Chapters cover everything from diagnostic testing to evaluating clinical signs, and includes reviews of nursing requirements for a wide range of conditions. All are top picks for any vet's practice." (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 December 2012)

“This is a high quality book. I work with CVTs in a university setting and would definitely recommend it to any technician seeking to better understand internal medicine.” (Doody’s, 30 November 2012)“This is really a great tool for revising before exams but also for in house training.” (Vet Nurses Today, 1November 2012)

“Small Animal Internal Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses provides veterinary technicians with the information they need and is essential reading for veterinary technician students, practicing technicians, and those studying for the AIMVT speciality exam.” (Small Animal Internal Medicine, Clinical Practice, 1 September 2012)
