"Equine Pharmacologywill be a valuable resource for practicing veterinarians and veterinary students who are interested specifically in treating horses and understanding the rationale for the most commonly used therapeutics in equine medicine . . . In summary, this book is a succinct and accurate resource that will provide readers with a clear understanding for most of the therapeutic options available for horses." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2015) "I would thoroughly recommend this book and consider it to be both a useful buy and value for money, as well as filling a much-needed place in any practice library or vet's car." (Veterinary Practice, 1 May 2015) "Equine pharmacology will be of benefit to veterinary students and practitioners, providing a succinct basis and approach to the clinical application of pharmacology in horses. As such, it will serve as a useful reference text in both hospital-based and ambulatory clinician settings for the provision of practical pharmacological management of equine patients." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 3 March 2017)
