"This book has a very specific purpose, namely the provision of a list of diseases recognised within pure breeds with increased frequency or with a proven genetic component, and will be of great value to general practitioners and specialists as a rapidly accessible source of this information." (Journal of Small Animal Practice, 1 October 2011) "It would be most useful for students, geneticists, shelter workers, vet nurses, pet shop staff or anyone working with or interested in cats and dogs. For veterinarians, it would make a good addition to the general clinic library for a readily accessible quick reference and when advising clients of possible problems with their chosen breed." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 5 May 2011) "This book's primary aim is to provide vets with an easily accessible and comprehensive list of all of the canine and feline diseases for which there is a proven or suspected breed predisposition. That is a very big ambition for a small book and in some ways it succeeds in this aim and should be applauded for that." (Cat Care, December 2010)
