"This is a book that can help you better understand the fundamental nature of wellness and disease (and how to support the former and prevent or control the latter). I've placed it on my ‘essentials' bookshelf." (The Vin Store, March 02, 2010) "This is an important addition to the literature, helping to remedy the general lack of comprehensive references devoted to the specialty of shelter medicine and providing a must-have resource for all those involved in the care of sheltered dogs and cats." (Doody's, December 2009) “Every shelter needs a copy of this information on hand for reference.” (Book News, September 2009)
