know of no other animal health reference that contains
so much information that is so user-friendly.
. . .Anyone with an interest in veterinary medicine,
animal science, livestock production, or other agricultural
agencies, as well as students interested in animal
and wellness, will find this book an outstanding resource."

"This essential reference
has been a mainstay in nearly every veterinary hospital
since it was first published in 1955."
Gina Spadafori, pet
care columnist for Universal Press Syndicate and author
of Cats for Dummies, Dogs for Dummies, and Birds for
"The Merck Manual is a MUST HAVE for
all vet students. It discusses most species and the
common problems of
each. It has an excellent appendix with all sorts of
useful information including normal TPRs, conversion
charts, and zoonoses, etc. While it does not go into
great depth on pathophysiology, it is a perfect place
to look up quick rule outs and basics. No matter what
species or organ system we're studying, I use my Merck
nearly every day."
