5.0 out of 5 stars Great portable drug reference for the small animal practitioner May 10 2010
By Paul Pomes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've used several drug references and have settled on two for daily use. First is Saunders for its coverage of the drugs I use, including off-label use of human drugs, without a lot of extraneous details. The problem with Plumb's is that it contains every anecdotal usage ever written up. This makes for a very bulky reference. Unless you have a copy that's been well-tabbed with post-it notes and the useful doses highlighted, Plumb's is more weight than it's worth for me. The other is The North American Companion Animal Formulary. It's condensed, fits into my jacket pocket, and has an excellent index of trade names to generic names as well as a quick index of applicable drugs for a number of conditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great drug cross reference. Aug. 29 2008

5.0 out of 5 stars Very user friendly Feb. 18 2013
By Michelle Mehalick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This formulary is very easy to reference and has great information concerning side effects, drug interactions and compounding information. Papich was one of my professors so I purchased this book when I graduated in 08. It quickly replaced the Plumb formulary at the clinic I worked in and became the choice of the older clinician I worked for as well. A must have for any hospital.
