This book is a long time in coming. I have always had the "official" copy of the Merck Veterinarian Manual and refer to it often. But this book is really good for the layman who wants to understand what is going on with their pet, and doesn't have the time to figure out the medical jargon in the "big book." Very thorough and all inclusive. An excellent resource and must have for people who have animals.

If you want an excellent source for information on the diseases and health issues that can affect your cat, dog, horse, bird, gold fish, or reptilian pet look no further than to the Merck/Merial Manual for Pet Health. Like its counterpart for human medicine it is a source for accurate and thorough health information.

This is a basic manual of animal health and distress. However, if you are looking for a text that not only describes the distress, provides a diagnosis, and then outlines a treatment course;this book is not for you. This book stays at the level of description and theory. This text is best used in conjunction with one that does provide treatment prescriptions.

I thought that this would be a more user-friendly version of the Merck Manual that I owned years ago ... and it is ... if the user is 12 years old and not in FFA. It's way too general to be tagged with the Merck Manual label. So I returned it and went with the vet's version and am more than happy with it.

This text is a must have for pet owners in my opinion. You can avoid some costly vet visits when somethings just "off" with your pet. Also, you'll know when you have something more serious on your hands. It is well written and draws directly from the Merck Vet manual but in easy to read language. It would be nice if the species were broken down into separate volumes so you wouldn't be paying for a resource on animals you don't interact with.

This book is what I call the Veternarian Bible. I dont think there is anything left out of this book. Informative, and educational. I do cat rescue and adoptions, and this book can potentially save you alot of money if there is a cat issue. Rather than going to the vet and having the vet guess at what the potential issue is, you can go in educated and say, could the cat have this, or that? This book is well worth it. I bought several other books, and they were all incredible. See my reviews for other books on animal care.

This book is amazing! So much information (over 1,300 pages) and such a great resource - as it is written and edited by the same experts that write the manual all vets study to pass their board exams. I appreciate that it is written in such an understandable manner. As a pet owner, I appreciate any information that will protect the health of my pets and allow me to further understand what my veterinarian recommends. With so much crazy information on the internet, it is great to know that there is a resource that can cut through the information clutter and provide sound information to better the health of my pets. My vet even had a copy in his waiting room!

I purchased this book after discovering that one of my dogs has hypothyroidism. The book fully described the process in how the diagnosis is made, and also the treatment. I was able to understand the diagnosis explanation to me by the specialist (after an ultrasound), and already knew what the treatment process would be. Although this book is a higher priced item, you won't regret the purchase. It's an encyclopedia on pet health, and will keep you informed on everything, from symptoms all the way through to treatment, and in language that the average person will understand. This book is not just dedicated to dog and cat owners, but covers ALL animals...birds, rodents, horses, dogs, cats, etc.
