“This is a book that you should purchase and not let sit on the shelf. Use it to perfect a ‘good death’ for your own patients.” (Australian Veterinary Journal, 1 April 2013) “So while this is not a perfect book, it definitely does what they intend and I genuinely look forward to future editions.” (Veterinary Practice News, 1 March 2013) “Overall, this is a wonderful resource for any practitioner or technician. The information is logically organized, enabling quick and easy retrieval. No other resource covers the topic of euthanasia as completely.” (Doody’s, 25 January 2013) “The text would be useful both in an educational as well as clinical setting for review and further study.” (Vspn.org, 1 January 2013) “Veterinary Euthanasia Techniques’ is very much a practical guide for veterinary surgeons and technicians on what is a difficult decision to make – and to get right.” (Veterinary Record, 15 December 2012) "The book can be used as a manual covering step-by-step techniques or as a starting point for discussing options with clients. No vet's library should be without this manual!." (The Bookwatch, 1 November 2012) “On balance, the authors of this new book have succeeded in providing a practical guide to the euthanasia techniques for all species the practising veterinarian is likely to encounter.” (Animal Welfare, 1 November 2012)
