“These additional materials make this a reasonably priced practice resource.” (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013) “Clinical Small Animal Care: Promoting Patient Health through preventative nursing provides a fine introduction to daily veterinary practice from initial animal assessment to the management of specific common diseases, and offers keys to best practices in veterinary care. Vet technicians and students alike will find this offers step-by-step descriptions of the basic tasks of a veterinary office, offering all the basics on patient care in a fine survey recommended for any college-level veterinary student and collections catering to them.” (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 October 2012) “Best practices for promoting small animal health accompany hands-on skills for assessing and monitoring the small animal, making for a powerful review perfect for newcomers to veterinary science and clinical work.” (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 September 2012) “Written by a very experienced veterinary technician (this is what vet nurses are called in the US), this book includes all the must do’s and know-how of day to day veterinary practice … This publication should also be read when designing a clinic to avoid the too frequent blatant welfare denials seen in some hospitals.” (Vet Nurses Today, 2012)
