|Published Reviews||If you purchase only one textbook for large animal practice, be your work mainly equine or farm animal, this is the one you should buy. This is a truly global large animal veterinary medicine textbook, while retaining its relevance to UK and Irish practitioners. It is suitable as a reference book for students, general practitioners and specialists alike, and is well worth the price as a comprehensive review of large animal medicine.
