This book fulfils its role very well and actually goes beyond the essentials without being overwhelming.  It is a good resource at an affordable price that will be useful for veterinary students, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, interns, and residents alike.   (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 16 September 2012)

This information will allow young practitioners to be able to communicate with staff members and owners about the benefits of pain management in pets. It will also equip them to be able to explain the methods for improving comfort in pets which can sometimes include massage and acupuncture.   (Tomorrow′s Vets, 1 January 2013)

Overall, this is a helpful review and quick reference for all veterinary professionals and students. Unlike other books covering anesthesia, this one provides a basic and quick reference guide that is an excellent resource for students and veterinary professionals alike.   (Doody s, 27 April 2012)

"All in all, it′s a nice little textbook that I expect will look as well thumbed as the BSAVA′s drug formulary within a few months." (Veterinary Record, 20 November 2011)

"This book should be a part of every student′s library, whether veterinary or technician. I extend many thanks to Wiley–Blackwell for giving me the opportunity to read and review this excellent textbook." (, 31 October 2011)
