Not only will student veterinary nurses find it excellent value in content and price, I expect that both qualified veterinary nurses and vets will view it as an invaluable addition to the practice library.   (Veterinary Record, 16 June 2012)

"This is the book that every nurse should have, be they a student nurse, a qualified nurse, an older qualified nurse and even some vets to bring them bang up to date with all the latest techniques and good standards of nursing care." (Veterinary Practice, 1 February 2012)
