Praise for this book:
[This book] provides an excellent framework to help [readers] think about cases...it is novel in its approach, and I will be keeping it close at hand throughout my final year of vet school.-- Myfanwy Hill, Veterinary Record, September, 2012
This is a nice, handy pocket-sized book that could be carried around in a jacket pocket by the student, newish graduate or perhaps a more experienced vet with responsibilities for coaching young graduates...There are some useful decision trees in the field of medicine including the common systems of the body and symptomologies encountered in first opinion practice. -- Dr. Paul R. Manning, Veterinary Practice, October, 2012
