From Library Journal
Having a sick pet is a stressful situation. There is no way your furry friend can tell you exactly what is ailing him or her. Some problems are fairly easy to remedy and can be handled by an alert, knowledgeable owner at home. Others are indications of more serious conditions requiring the intervention of a veterinarian. Here a panel of respected vets provides hints for everyday pet healthcare. Each section includes descriptions and suggestions for coping with or curing ailments ranging from arthritis to shedding. Almost 100 different symptoms and problems are covered, and several of the chapters have a section entitled "When To See the Vet." Though this book is not a medical reference or a substitute for veterinary care, it is full of useful tips for making your dog's or cat's life more comfortable. Recommended...


Fluid Therapy for Veterinary Nurses and Technicians

0750652837


·
 
Review
"This is the first book aimed at veterinary nurses and technicians solely on the subject of fluid therapy. With only 110 pages the book is concise but to the point, it offers the reader the opportunity to refer to certain sections quickly, as well as being a very useful study guide for those involved with the S/NVQ veterinary nursing qualification.

The diagrams, I personally think, are excellent, clear, well drawn and easy to follow, especially the one showing placement of an over-the-needle intravenous catheter.

Chapter 5 is titled 'Calculating fluid requirements and flow rates', which is probably the most important chapter in the whole book. This subject area is generally where students tend to struggle in their exams and lose valuable marks.

I highly recommend this book for all students and qualified...

From Publishers Weekly
What happens when a young vet from a small-animal practice in the big city (in this case, Chillicothe, Ohio) buys a smalltown, mixed-animal veterinary practice from its retiring owner? He quickly finds himself treating ornery bulls and drunken pigs, delivering calves by C-section, stitching up horses and shaving cats who've had buckets of paint spilled on them. He also learns that the "three requirements to practice in the country ... are to be able to drive a truck like a maniac, rope cattle in the dark, and drive a truck like a maniac." In this collection of a few dozen colloquial anecdotes about veterinary life, Sharp brings wit and warmth to his portrayals of the animals and people of Hillsboro, Ohio. He tells of the eccentric old woman who cared for the stray dogs that no one else wanted, the goat who...

A Country Practice

From Publishers Weekly
In this frank, engaging look at life as a country vet, Whynott (Following the Bloom) shows that it takes more than good training and a love of animals to make a mixed-animal practice successful. He shadows two seasoned associates in rural New Hampshire as they tend to the health of local dairy herds, treat skittish horses and minister to all manner of pet needs, from routine spayings to emergency amputations. Faced with an increasingly daunting workload, Chuck Shaw and Roger Osinchuck decide to hire Erika Bruner, who's fresh out of veterinary school. Though Whynott gives ample pages to each practitioner, Erika's experience in particular highlights how the profession is changing. "My friends in vet school have no idea why I like this," she says, referring to her hours spent ankle-deep in manure and "arm-deep in...

REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITIONS:

"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." – Anonymous User, Virginia (Book Review reviewer)

From School Library Journal
YA Readers of Herriot's four classics and viewers of the PBS series will recognize many of these stories, which will still bring a smile or a tear to the eyes of dog lovers. Each of the 50 stories is preceded by a pen-and-ink sketch. Following each story, there are one or two paragraphs of Herriot's philosophy, outlook on life, and reminiscences about the dogs he has known. In these accounts he illustrates the various reactions of the dogs to the vet who treats them, thus providing the psychological side of animal doctoring. Especially interesting and enlightening are the descriptions of treatments given in the '30s as compared to what research has put into the hands of today's vet. A good choice for dog lovers.
