Review "This edition continues to manage the delicate balance between providing a breadth of information and condensing and assimilating that information in a useful manner. The creative addition of well-done callout boxes, which highlight new or controversial information, interesting facts, and evidence-based medicine or direct readers to other helpful information, is extremely beneficial." -Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association About the Author David J.
