Each chapter includes a self-assessment section with test questions and clinical cases.

He added: “Our textbooks focus on the practical application of current veterinary knowledge, offering top tips and key advice throughout expressed in an engaging and highly visual format to ensure that they are perfect for those in need of a quick ‘look up’ in practice.”
