Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

The content is very good and well organized. I really like the attention to practical and clinical applications of each species. – Melvin Chambliss, Alfred State University

— Melvin Chambliss

I like the manual format for the procedures. The format is easy to follow and would be appropriate for both students and graduate technicians.

— Betsy Krieger

It has a very practical, to-the-point way of addressing common procedures that technicians would either perform alone, or in conjunction with the veterinarian. It could be a good reference for students preparing for class beforehand, as well as to review procedures in actual practice prior to doing them.– S. Burnett, Argosy University
