5-0 out of 5 stars The standard...
Before my first spay, I watched the demonstration video a few times, read over my spay manual a few times....but reading the procedure over in Fossum upped my confidence in remembering each step.

I've used this book to clarify certain procedures mentioned in my classes, and it has helped me so much conceptually. The illustrations are great and provide a great model to accompany the instructions.

It's a standard for any vet student!

5-0 out of 5 stars terrific book
The best surgery book out there. Detailed, full-color drawings give me confidence that I can actually do the procedure. I did my first GDV last week with this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first edition
A must have for any practitioner. The first edition was great, replacing my 2 volume Slatter's, the second edition is even better! Other authors should learn from this reference, provide the information needed and include terrific pictures and drawings!

5-0 out of 5 stars Review Questions and Answers for Veterinary Technicians
I used this text to study for my national boards two years ago and recommend to all of the students I encounter. It's a great way to test yourself before you take the exam. I purchased it about 6 weeks prior to. Each section gives you multiple choice questions about the knowledge you have already obtained. You can then grade yourself on the sections and see what weak areas you may need to "touch up on" before you test. It's well worth the money. I passed the exam, and felt it prepared me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!!
This is a great book for studying for the board exams (or for your own personal knowledge)... covers every aspect of veterinary technology you'd ever want to know about!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent study-guide
I am studying now to take my boards in the Spring. This workbook is an excellent way for me to test myself, locate my areas of weakness and to improve upon those areas in time for the boards. My classmates all liked it so much, they asked me to order copies for them too!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST STUDY BOOK TO GET!!!
This is a great book to study with. It will help you know what to study and it explains most answers you have. Totally worth your money!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for Boards preparation
I've only had a chance to look at this book briefly, but that look was enough to convince me to order it. I know it's divided by subject matter, and takes the form of a long, multiple-choice quiz (like the Boards themselves) with the answers at the end of each chapter. It's great if, like me, you study best by testing yourself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is THE Emergency Book to Own
Practical, concise and to the point, easy to find what you need and reasonably priced. Need I say more?

5-0 out of 5 stars Just get it!
I had the first edition; it was very good. This is a different book; much better. Tiny letters, no drawings, 574 pages, information on virtually every emergency you can think of. And good information, right to the point, no words wasted. It reviews 99 emergency syndromes in dogs or cats, 40 intoxications, and emergencies in 14 different exotic pets (including fish). Every item includes at least diagnosis, prognosis , and treatment, and has all the details and alternatives that you may need in an emergency situation. There is a certain amount af repetition but this allows one to use any chapter with complete independence from the others (that is what you want in an emergency). Not all syndromes may be real emergencies, but all need some quick medical response, and this books makes them easier and (I am sure) better. When I face an emergency, just feeling this book next to me is reassuring. Bravo, Signe, you wrote a great book and made a big favor to our profession!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best of the best
This book represents a milestone for small animal emergencies. When you have a dog or a cat dying in front of you, there is no time for complicated explanations, you need an answer RIGHT AWAY!!! This book -believe it or not- is very fun to read, I read the whole thing in 3 or 4 days. I greatly recommend it !!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I've worn this book out!
Almost every day someone in the practice grabs this book from the shelf and invariably it contains the information they require. It is practical, accurate and concise - not much point in an emergency book which takes 20 pages to cover each topic! It lives in the real world repeatedly pointing out that it might be advisable to inform clients about cost and prognosis before going ahead with risky and expensive procedures. And there is so much more than emergency procedures in here - lists of drug dosages, brief overviews of exotic animals, fomulae - and every topic in short sharp style. I'll soon buy a new one as my current copy is stuck with tape and held together by an elastic band. Not ten out of ten though - it could usefully be published in a more robust form ... Read more

Book Description

Here, at last, is a revised and expanded edition of this award-winning breeders' reference. Successful Dog Breeding is a book for the first-time breeder and longtime fancier alike, no matter what the breed. Down-to-earth practical information is given to cover virtually every contingency associated with breeding and whelping. Presented in a humorous format, even the most serious information is made easier to understand.

Chris Walkowicz and Bonnie Wilcox, D.V.M., are both veteran dog fanciers who bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to every chapter. Covering topics from planning the breeding (should I or shouldn't I?) to problems encountered in breeding, delivery and neonatal care, the authors offer viable solutions to innumerable problems, whether old or new. Two highly extensive appendices on breed idiosyncrasies, compiled from correspondence with longtime fanciers as well as from research from veterinary journals, complete the abundance of information offered here. All of this is complemented by original drawings by the well-known canine artist Mary Jung.

I am pleased that the book talks about being responsible and that is why I rate this a 2. I just don't think we need to teach more people how to breed with the pet overpopulation problem we are having in our country. It is a good book if in the right hands.

For veterinary technicians and their professors, this book is a gift. It not only teaches the basics of anatomy and physiology but covers comparative domestic animal anatomy as well. No longer will the vet tech have to depend on human anatomy texts or buy expensive, huge volumes on each separate animal. The book is beautifully written and distills complex, large topics into simple manageable material. For veterinarians, the book is a great way to quickly review anatomy of all the species. For the nonprofessional reader, it would be a fascinating look at how animals are the same and yet different. The diagrams alone are worth the purchase. ... Read more

Book Description

In Praise of  The Complete Book of Foaling

"A must read for anybody who has ever thought about breeding a mare." —Judith Forbis, Ansata Arabian Stud

"Brilliantly written—reads like a novel, yet beautifully organized so that you can flip to a section at a moment's notice if your mare is in trouble." —Equus

"This book should be included in every foaling kit. In fact, it should never sit on the bookshelf in the house—keep it in the barn where you can always get to it in a hurry!" —Modern Horse Breeding

"Right away the illustrations set this book apart from any other in its class. Dr. Hayes's ability to teach is the other distinction—she has a knack for explaining things in such a way that you understand and remember, and the learning process is fun. I couldn't put the book down until I had read it cover to cover." —Walter Schimanski, Masada Arabians

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Information and well written
This is the best work I've read on foaling. Dr. Hayes completely covers every aspect of foaling. The book is far more than I could have hoped for. A must read.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book saves lives!
I would like to thank the author of this book for saving the life of a mare and a beautiful bay filly foaled on 3/28/2002. The foal was presented upside down and was unable to be delivered without corrective action. My veterinarian was on vacation and I knew that we were on our own. I remembered reading about this particular dystocia in The Complete Book of Foaling and I grabbed the book and had my assistant read the instructions on how to correct the presentation to me while I carefully followed them. I am happy to report that we were able to correct the presentation and deliver the foal without further incident. This book contains a practical, hands-on approach to foaling and is a must for every foaling attendant. Buy this book. It saves lives.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helped me out a lot
I got this book about one month before my daughter's mare foaled. I found it to be very informative and well written. I must have read it all the way through twice, and read other sections many more times. When the foaling time came I knew what signs to look out for and was confident, with what I read, that I knew when and if the vet needed to be called out. There were sections covering what to look for in the foal several days following the birth so that if the foal was in trouble very little time would be wasted in calling the vet. I would recommend this book to any first-time broodmare or foal owners. Although I think no book will calm the nerves of an expectant horse owner, it will explain the process enough so that when the blessed event does occur you could more enjoy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Information
This book was well organized and described the various stages of parturition in great detail and in an organized manner. The book provides practical information for someone new to the world of equine birthing. After reading (and re-reading) this book I felt confident that I would be a help and not a hindrance for my mare during delivery. I highly recommend this book to ensure that you are well prepared for the experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for foaling, especially for first timers
Of the books I have read, I probably could have gotten by with only this one to guide me through the foaling process. Dr. Hayes has created a very well written book for anyone to read ... from the layman to others in the veterinary field. The book is quite well organized, with each section covering different crucial stages of foaling, from knowing when she's going to foal through the first 12 hours. Photographs are appropriately placed in order to educate the reader about what ever physical aspect of foaling, from signs, to birth positions, to milking the mare. Personally, I found the organization to be quite a nice touch. There are lists and charts at the end of the book to help you organize the information you've just read. Some issues aren't entirely talked about ... each veterinarian has their own opinions, and Dr. Hayes has her own about vaccines and worming and the such. As always, take the more medical aspects of foaling over with your own veterinarian and decide on what you feel is best. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Close to perfect but no cigar
While this text is a valuable resource for students, veterinarians, and veterinary clinical pathologists, the wealth of information and quality is diminished by the numerous grammatical and typographical errors found throughout the text. Some errors can be overlooked; however, others can result in misinterpretation of laboratory findings by the novice. It would behoove the editors to spend more time on editing in future volumes.

Examples: p. 1231 Oct. vs. May RBC #, Hb, And Hct. values do not make sense.

p. 699, table 104.2 myelomonocytic leukemia, special stains, positive NSE with and without fluoride inhibition is incorrect

p. 955, The author states: "Interestingly, the diseases causing hemoglobinopathies and glucose-6-phopsphate dehydrogenase deficiencies common in human patients have not been documented in domestic animals." yet, on p.996, he lists a domestic animal! [Table 145.1 Defects: glucose-6-phopsphate dehydrogenase deficiency; Breed: Weimeraner]

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Veterinary Hematology book/reference
TheFifth Edition of Schalm's Veterinary Hematology is a valuable tool to anyveterinarian, regardless of which point they are in in their career. For the novice veterinary student, thein-depth chapters provide the necessary information to easily learn newconcepts. The color photographs,illustrations, figures and charts drivehome the salient points. The casestudies put the topics into a clinical setting allowing the student to applythe information learned in clinical setting. The figures and tables provide the practicing veterinarian enoughinformation to jar a rusty memory. Thein-depth chapters also provide the seasoned veterinary with the necessaryinformation to stay abreast of the latest trends. The variety of species-specific hematologic information isunmatched by any other book that I have used in my short career. The topics are organized in a coherent andlogical manner. The index is quiteextensive and makes locating the needed information quite easy. I wish a resource like this had been available 2.5 years ago when I started veterinary school. It would have saved me alot of time having to look in multiple texts to find information that could all be found in one place. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great veterinary resource, NOT for pet owners
I love my nerdbook; I'm not on clinics yet but I use it to work through mock cases and as a review tool. It contains the basics for working up common problems and is a concise resource for simple questions. I am troubled by the review by a pet owner, though. This is not at all designed as a first aid for pets book and is written for an audience with much more understanding of animal health and medicine than even an educated pet owner. It's dangerous to think you know more than you do and can result in not seeking trained medical care when it is warranted. So, while it is great for vet students and interns it is not for pet owners. Sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent pocketguide for interns/students
This is an excellent pocket guide for final year students or interns in small animal hospitals. It covers not only internal medicine but orthopedics as well. Despite minor errors, it is still the best there is. It is used in veterinary teaching hospitals all over the U.S.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MEDICAL REFERENCE FOR PET OWNERS
I'm sure this book is a godsend to veterinary students. But I'm not a veterinary student, I use it to learn about and understand possible problems, their symptoms and treatment, so that I can be more vigilant with my pets, and have a better conversation with my veterinarian. Yes, it's more challenging to the understanding of the average pet owner, but it's far more authoritative than the average "first aid for your pet" book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
I got this book a couple of years ago on the advice of my mentor. This book has really helped me out in school(esp. in my Problem-Based Learning classes). It is pretty easy to understand, is very concise, and it includes many commmon and uncommon diseases of small animals. However, not all information about specific diseases is included. This resource should just be used as a starting point. The formulary is useful, as is the section about diagnostic test results. I just wish they would come out with a 5-Minute Consult-Exotics Edition

5-0 out of 5 stars Great user-friendly reference for vet students
This book is great when you just need the down and dirty on a disease, and don't want to wade through a 50-page description in the heavy-duty references. It was also very useful during second-year, when you're just trying your hand at figuring out the diseases, and need a little confirmation of your diagnosis and treatment plans. Or, when you're totally clueless and need help get started in the right direction. Fair warning, faculty usually won't accept it as 'reference' especially if you're trying to argue a point, but during a recent open-book final, I brought mine in anyway and there was practically a mob of other students rushing over to check out one thing or another.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Minute Veterinary Consult: Canine and Feline (CD-ROM for W
Tilley's 5 -Minute Veterinary Consult book has been an extremely valuable asset to my library. When the CD-Rom came out, it was even more useful in that immediate and current information can be retrieved much faster than picking up a book. It is faster since topics related to a case can be searched for and reviewed with a touch of your mouse. This information can be quickly printed and given to clients to further understand their pets diagnosed condition. This printed information alone is priceless! A client that has something in hand and can follow and confirm their veterinarian's diagnosis and treatment, helps establish the trust a client needs to have in their pets doctor.

I reach for my 5- Minute Vet Consult CD-rom more than any other resource in my library. It is very accurate and has a surprising amount of detail to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of each topic. The drug search is a very helpful formulary for those quick reference needs. The most recent CD has a good number of cytology and radiographic images attached to the topics. These can be enlarged to see more closely the great detail.

In my opinion the 5-Minute Veterinary Consult CD-Rom was one of the best reference investments for my practice. It is definitely the most utilized reference I have. Time is money and this has saved me many steps and thus time and money. Every practice needs this reference without doubt!

My vet suggested me getting this book (I have worked for him for 6 years) and I am glad I did! It has 4 different sections in it, "Presenting Problems and Physical Findings", "Diagnostic-Laboratory Tests", "Diagnostics-Electrocardiography", and "Diseases and Clinical Syndromes". Each section has detailed information on each finding, usually two pages per each problem, which covers the Basics (definition, signalment, causes and risk factors), Diagnosis, Treatment, Medications, Follow-up and a Miscellaneous. There is plenty of information in the Appendix section of the book as well. Including a Formulary, Conversion Tables and more! I would highly recommend it to vets, students and vet techs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Concise, affordable reference
The Merck Manual's new edition is a much needed update to previous editions. The book follows the same, easy to follow formal and includes sections on exotic animals that were not a part of previous editions. It is a very affordable although fairly comprehensive reference to general veterinary medicine.

Some veterinary students have found this a very useful book for reviewing while studying for National Boards.

The book's main flaw is that references are poorly cited, and for the most part, are non-existent.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Bathroom Reading For The Layman
Want to know what to feed your sheep? Or your lizard? Want to know why your cow has the sniffles? This book has it!

I have an old dogeared (heh) copy of the people book these folks put out. I decided to pick up the veterinary manual after acquiring a rabbit. (I was using the people book to look up feline ailments, which mapped extremely well to the entries in the people book. The rabbit is a little space alien, as far as that goes.) I sat down with some crackers and a cup of coffee and had a blast riffling through the book and pondering over such delightful words are ruminants and ungulates.

I felt the book was not the most intuitively organized book I've ever seen, but it's a great reference manual (once you get the hang of it) and is fun to flip through if the only animals you have ever dealt with have been cats and dogs.

One big problem is that I will go along reading something and have no idea what species I am reading about. I'm a little concerned about what I am going to do in an emergency. "Now is that a lagomorph problem? Oh wait. It's talking about the patient's trunk! Or is that a uvula?"

So, I liked it, but not as much as, say "The Book of the Cat". The rabbit did not (he bit it and shoved it onto the floor) and the cats want to own it (they rubbed their chins on it.)

Its a great peek into the lives of farmers and zookeepers at any rate. I wonder how veterinarians feel about it?

4-0 out of 5 stars If only i could purchase MVM when I was student...
Very useful book. Exposition language very easy. Altough my english isn't good, I understand and MVM help to me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable if you know what you are talking about
This is a great book. If you already know alot, then you will be all set. I've only been an assistant for 2years, and reading this is difficult, if I didn't have a vet dictionary I would be lost. If you are well trained then I see this as a wonderful book to have, maybe invaluable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great referencing!
As a veterinary technician who graduated in '94 and is out of the clinics, but still works in Animal care, it is the best. I refer back to it all the time. I don't remember everything I was taught and especially being away from practices, it is perfect. It has EVERYTHING!! I carry it with me, it is like my bible! Nothing beats this either, I had other books that I have tried to refer to, but this is ideal as I stated it has everything. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Beats Ettinger Hands Down
That pretty much sums it up. This book is a lot more user friendly. Ettinger's is good for those in acedemia. Nelson & Couto is for those in the "real world".

5-0 out of 5 stars Vet Students Agree
I recently consulted with a group of advanced veterinary students on which of the small animal internal medicine texts would be the most useful to me. For the record, I am an allied health professional with more background in human medicine. I looked at this text and Ettinger's, which--again!--my sources kept referring to as the bible of small animal internal medicine. Ettinger was only about $30 more than this text, and as a big two-volume set, it looked like a better deal at first glance. However, this text is FAR more user-friendly, and there were sections that I read right away out of sheer interest. Unless you are a vet student planning to make a meaningful investment in heavy books, this book is likely to meet your needs and do so in a relatively painless way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Small Animal Internal Medicine
As a veterinary student this book has been my "bible." It has current information and is a lot more user friendly than the Ettinger texts. There are simplified charts and tables of diagnostic and therapeutic plans and differential diagnoses. The author includes other current opinions on the subject matter as well as his own. I feel this is a great reference book for veterinary professionals. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is life-altering
When I first heard of the RMB diet, I was dubious. Having read this book and seen the effects the raw meaty bone diet has had on my dog, I am completely convinced. All it takes is logic. Regardless of how well a dog is domesticated, it has the genes of its wild ancestor, the wolf. In the wild, how and what does a wolf eat? It eats raw meat and bone. It doesn't open up a can of dog food containing 80% water and 4% meat. It doesn't kill an animal and then oven-cook it. It doesn't eat only one meal a day. We are slowly killing our pets by doing these things. It is so unnatural. We need to use logic and mimic nature. We need to understand that cats and dogs aren't furry humans. They need to be treated differently. A human doesn't find the prospect of a raw meaty bone appealing. An animal does. It's that simple.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Book Is DANGEROUS
A raw diet is one of the worst things you can feed your dog, or any companion animal. The worst thing you could possibly feed your dog is raw meat with bones in it.

There are huge health risks involved including:

MANY, many different types of parasites in raw meat--cooked meat has at least killed off the parasites--might possible need quick medical treatment, or surgery

Bone slivers can cause digestion problems including gouging out pieces of their intestions--needs surgery

The bones themselves can get caught in their intestions--emergency surgery.

While there are many other problems with giving your dog, cat, etc. raw meat (including liver, kidney, cardiac, etc.) these are the ones a person is most likely to see.

Just because none of these have happened to you yet the reason is YOU'VE BEEN LUCKY!!!!

I'll leave you with one last thought: An animal lives longer in captivity--the reasons for this are simple--better diet (not raw meat) and better medical care (which you will eventually need if you give your dog a raw meat diet.)

4-0 out of 5 stars A ripping yarn
It is interesting that the pendulum in human nutrition appears to be swinging away from manufactured foods towards much less processing. This little book makes a good case for the same in our pets.

It is a whistleblower's report on the ties that bind veterinary education and professional control these days to the marketers of pet food.
It is also a single veterinarian's attempt to present a clear argument *for* feeding the pet dog and the pet cat on a healthier diet than that offered by manufacturers of "pet food".

Recommended for its insight into the mucky politics of professional associations no less than for its good assembling of the arguments for feeding our pets more like ma nature intended.

5-0 out of 5 stars An educated and logical way to feed pets!
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Dr. Tom Lonsdale while he was teaching his "Raw Meaty Bones" seminar at Emory University. Tom gives excellent information that gives you very logical and scientific reasons to feed a natural diet, much like the dog's wild ancestors ate.

This book will open your eyes! It will teach you to feed your animals in a way that may have never occurred to you before. You'll be surprised how efficiently your animals will consume their meals, and how completely your animal can digest bones.

The most noticeable improvement you will notice when feeding this diet, is that "doggie breath" eventually disappears. Feeding fresh raw carcasses has an extremely beneficial effect on oral hygiene in pets.

There are many, many internet support groups for feeding your pet a "raw meaty bone" diet. You can buy this diet in any grocery store, or you may prefer to buy in bulk through a buying co-op or at a wholesale meat supplier. This is a very cost-efficient way of feeding, because your animal will consume a lot less food overall. Try to avoid the pre-packaged raw diets if you can. Although they have many benefits, they do not provide proper oral stimulation, and will not clean your pet's teeth. They also do not support local growers and businesses, which is so important in the current sluggish economy.

Tom Lonsdale is a long-practicing veterinarian, who has dedicated his life to promoting a natural way of feeding pets. I thought that Dr. Lonsdale was a very sincere, compassionate man, whose goal in teaching his diet principals, was to truly promote the best interests of our companion animals.

I will hope you will read this book, and apply the knowledge gained from it to your own animals health and well-being. I highly recommend his book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Eye-opening informations!
I am living in Germany and have had dogs for more than 30 years now. Before that, I already learned from my grandfather that dogs are carnivores and need an appropriate diet to keep healthy. So I have always been wondering how the idea of feeding them only processed food with grains and industrial by-products as main ingredients could get into the mind of most pet owners in the modern world.

Advertising is the keywort, creating fears not to provide the right food a dogs needs is another one, besides the "genious" idea of the pet food industry to take care of the professional education of veterinarians at an early stage in the universities.

Decreasing health in our dogs has been the visible result over years. When I was a child there was only one vet in our town, nowadays we do have 4. They should all be unemployed due to the fact that most dog owners feed their dogs high premium kibble which provides the best nutrition we can think of!

I don`t eat canned or processed dried food myself, and never ever would give that to my dogs. But Tom Lonsdales book has opened my eyes to the commercial background and unbelievable amounts of money in the business of commercial dog food. Now I do understand. And I would recommend his book as a must read for all veterinarians, all responsible dog owners and all persons who may have some influence regarding laws about what may be the ingredients in pet food.

Money is ruling the world, but we should not let our pets be the victims. This book will open your eyes, too! ... Read more
