“This book is described as a comprehensive, gold-standard reference on the subject . . . Regardless, the authors should be lauded for their efforts, and I look forward to the second edition being an expanded, 2-volume set.”  (Vet Med Today, 15 December 2013)

“Throughout the book, the contributors have cleverly integrated aspects of veterinary medicine, surgery and physiotherapy to highlight the value of an integrated approach to the rehabilitation of the canine athlete and, in so doing, may help further promote the value of this branch of veterinary work within the UK. In addition, the book places a strong emphasis on the importance of appropriate training for all rehabilitation specialists, and this can only be applauded.”  (Veterinary Record, 7 September 2013)

“There have been very few veterinary textbooks that since I left college in 1979 I have really felt they are a “must have”.  This book is one of those. . . This is a big step forward for veterinary medicine, and I will certainly be keeping my copy ready to hand in the practice.”  (Veterinary Practice News, 1 September 2013)

“This is a masterful achievement in content, readability, and usefulness. The text is perfectly illustrated with images of extraordinary quality. The authors have successfully addressed the needs of a diverse audience of animal health professionals faced with a wide range of injuries and other physical disabilities in their canine patients.”  (Doody’s, 16 August 2013)

“Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation offers an in-depth reference on all aspects of sports medicine for dogs, is written by leaders in the field, and covers everything from exercise physiology and biomechanics to common orthopedic conditions of a canine athlete and therapies addressing these problems. Basic science blends with veterinary insights and applications to the athletic animal in a coverage recommended for both vets and those working with canine athletes. Keys to the latest rehabilitation processes, descriptions of clinical cases, and photos and illustrations throughout pack a reference that is filled with observations and applications from an international list of experts. The result is a pick for canine trainers and veterinary collections alike.”  (Midwest Books Reviews, 1 July 2013)

“All in all, this should prove to be a key book for veterinarians seeing athletic patients, or even for dogs with everyday injuries that might benefit from these therapies.”  (Veterinary Information Network, 1 June  2013)
