On a day-to-day practice basis, it provides all essential information, and serves as a ready reference book. Extensive coverage on the vast Veterinary topics in a comprehensive manner is the hallmark of the book. The price hike for the new edition seems reasonable. As different from the previous edition, the 9th edition has more pages devoted for Exotic animals, which I consider a welcome move since it is a fast developing Veterinary practice area. Likewise more pages are devoted for Toxicology, which also finds lot of applications in practice. More information is provided on some emerging diseases. We are still browsing through pages to find out other new additions.
Some very essential pictures, for example on ECG, Hematology etc. could have been included, instead of describing pages on these topics. Some more coverage on X-rays, it's interpretation are essential. This could be done in the on-line version of the book at least. Some more tables meant for ready reference in emergency medicine could have been included. The on-line version of the book seems not updated yet to the 9th edition.
If you are buying for your wonderful horse, don't bother.
I am happy with mine- having a medical background helps in reading this as it is not meant for the lay reader. Would I buy it again, yes. Would I recommend it to the farmer down the road? No.
