"This is an excellent medical and surgical reference for camelids.It is thorough, but written concisely so that it is readable. Thephotographs, illustrations, and tables are very helpful and thebook provides useful information on restraint and handling,nutrition at all levels of life, and expected growth patterns. Anyveterinarian working with camelids would benefit from having thisin their library." (Doody's,22 April 2011)" "This textbook offers a definitive resource for veterinary careof camelids. It is obvious that the text has been expanded toinclude more information about camels and updated to includecurrent literature, color images, and new treatments. The price isappropriate, and the book is well worth the price for the amount ofinformation provided and the overall quality of the text."(Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association,December 2010)
