Thanks for helping me write off the iPad, Dr. Plumb! Oct. 24 2011
By Richard McAroy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a practicing veterinarian, I use Plumb's every day. You know, "My dog has Lyme nephritis, blah blah blah, what dose of doxycycline do you recommend?" or "My tortoise just ate lizard poo, how much Panacur can he have? Blah blah blah." You know the drill.

I wanted access to Plumb's without having to through the online services. Up until now, I had to subscribe to expensive Veterinary Internet Network to get access to an electronic version of Plumb's, and after a while I got tired of the pious "Kumbaya and pass the checkbook" monthly payment. And they weren't very iPad friendly, either. So one day you're lugging your Macbook into an exam room and "Sir Bites-A-Lot," a West Herefordshire Gnashing Retriever sees your hands occupied holding a computer and takes the initiative and tries to rip your throat out. Suddenly you're faced with a spur-of-the-moment choice: do I drop my expensive Macbook and shield my crotch and throat from Sir Bites-A-Lot, or do I hug my Macbook to my chest and scream "Not the face, not the face!" Decisions, decisions.

Fortunately, Dr. Plumb's favorite resource is now available for the Kindle. So I DL'd it to my Kindle app on my iPad and VOILA! I can simultaneously impress clients with my wealth of pharmacological knowledge while simultaneously using my free non-iPad-holding paw to shield myself from the fur-covered razorblade attacking me from the exam table. Kudos to you, Sir! Additionally, the iPad becomes a legitimate business expense and I am blessed by the IRS. Does life get any better, I ask you?

So, to sum things up: No more paying a monthly fee to a Veterinary Internet Network for access to a site which doesn't display properly on my iPad, now I have a copy of Plumb's on my unicorn-tear-powered tablet that I can access at any time.

Watch out, Sir Bites-A-Lot: In one hand I carry my iPad with Plumb's on my Kindle app, while I still have one free hand with which to defend myself. You have met your match. For that fact alone, Dr. Plumb's text gets five stars.

time consuming searches July 7 2013
By gwen marder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lack of an index makes finding a drug a multistep process. If i want to look up selegiine, I first have to go to my android menu and hit "go to". next I have to hit "Table of Contents". This takes me to "Contents Systemic Monographs". Then I have to page through from the drugs that start with "A" to the page that has drugs starting with "S". The I scroll through the "S" drugs to find selegiline.

The content, once you find the desired drug, is what you would expect in any addition of "Plumbs".

great reference March 19 2014

great drug reference specially the pocket edition! I use it often.
Just be careful with the references for drugs like metronidazole since the range varies greatly and higher doses could cause toxicity.

eBook version a literal waste of time. Nov. 20 2013
By DVM in Oregon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Comparing this Kindle Ebook edition to the 2nd edition I have on my old Palm device, I can say that the Kindle eBook is a complete and utter waste of time and technology. As others have stated, searching for a particular drug monograph is an arduous and time consuming process. How about a simple A,B,C,D... index at the beginning of the table of contents (Like the old Palm edition had)? Instead the Kindle eBook forces you to search manually though each page of the substantial table of contents. There is no linked material within the monographs (unlike the old Palm edition), so if you want to find another related drug or one used for the same purpose referenced within a monograph, instead of just clicking on an active link to another monograph, you AGAIN return to the table of contents for yet another time consuming search. Within particular monographs of the Kindle version, you must scroll through it entirely to get to the dosages section, in contrast, the old Palm edition had highlighted links at the beginning of each individual monograph to the various sections within, such as doses.

Also: the images of various tables taken from the physical book are of such poor resolution as to be essentially unreadable at full size even on a 1080p full screen display. Very sloppy work.

Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook is an excellent reference that no DVM should be without. Just buy the physical book. The eBook for Kindle as it is presently is simply an embarrassment to the publishers and an insulting waste of a professional's time. Fix it and try again. Hint: use the old Palm editions as a model of how an electronic reference book SHOULD work.
