Uniting pharmacological insight and principles with specific therapeutic guidelines needed by students and practising vets, this text contains a detailed presentation on disease and drugs which provides clinical information about the problem and covers drug therapy in detail. The work is disease and drug specific, indicating, for example, how to identify problems due to the doping of horses for race purposes, the drugs used and management of the animal involved. Large and small animal drugs are both covered. The author is aware of drug differences between the USA and the rest of the world and is up-to-date regarding latest approvals by FDA and current information on all approved drugs. He is a consultant for vet drugs for both the FDA and its equivalent in Europe, which gives him a recognized presence in the North American market as well as accurate coverage of newer drugs and drug delivery systems. The text approaches the subject from the standpoint of the practising vet, rather than the pharmacologist, resulting in the book being a bridge between basic science texts and general pharmacology.
